Mum who couldn’t afford to feed herself pays off £9,000 debt and forgave home loan


Tracy Prees, 47, was £10,000 in debt at her worst two years ago after taking out overdrafts, credit cards and loans – but she has since turned her life around

Tracy Prees shared her debt journey

A single mum who couldn’t afford to feed herself has told how she wiped out £9,000 of debt in two years by transforming her finances.

Tracy Prees, 47, who works as a driving instructor in Birmingham, says cutting her bills and complaining to payday loan companies has helped her financial transformation.

She also took advice from MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis and says getting the right insurance has helped her in an emergency.

The mother-of-one, who has a 12-year-old daughter, says her debt troubles began when she applied for her first credit card when she was just 18.

At its lowest point two years ago, it had racked up £10,000 in debt through overdrafts, credit cards, loans and missed payments.

Tracy is now almost completely out of debt

She was also paying Brighthouse £55 a week for her TV and was unable to buy food.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “I’ve always worked but always struggled to pay my bills. Every month I owed more than I earned.

“It got to the point where I had to have a part-time job, alongside a full-time job.

“You end up with bad credit – even now my credit report still isn’t great – but it gets you in trouble because you always pay more when you borrow.

“You feel penalized because you can’t get the cheapest borrowing rates and you can’t have an overdraft or a normal loan.”

Tracy says taking a close look at her finances – so she can clearly see how much money she’s getting each month – has been a major factor in overcoming her debts.

She started transferring money from one bank account to another specifically for her bills so she knew exactly how much money she needed to spend each month.

Tracy would also make sure her bills went out the same day so she wouldn’t miss any payments.

Cutting her bills with Martin Lewis’s advice—including cutting her car insurance, gas and electric, and broadband—also gave Tracy more money to spend on her debts.

“I made sure to swap my car insurance and because of Martin Lewis it went from £50 to £100,” she explained.

“I’m a bit of an insurance queen, so I always like to cover myself. For example, I have insurance that covers me for my tires and my batteries.

“Just before Christmas, I ended up with a flat tire and it didn’t cost me anything. When you have no money, you have to think of other ways to deal with an emergency.

“I’ve saved money on gas and electric by comparing prices, although there’s not much you can do to save money on that right now.

“I also saved by cutting off my broadband and used cashback sites for additional savings.”

Tracy was also able to reduce her debts by complaining to loan companies, including Provident and Amigo Loans.

She had complained to Provident about the amount she was repaying and had received an email from them just before Christmas telling her they were closing her account.

“I owed around £1,000 but it was interest – I had paid back what I had borrowed,” Tracy said.

“I had an Amigo loan with my ex-partner and I also complained to them and they changed what I owe from £1000 to £200.”

To help her out of a difficult situation when her washing machine broke down, Tracy sought cheaper loans and ended up borrowing from the charity-owned ethical lender Fair for You.

Fair For You helps people who don’t have access to regular credit to buy household essentials only with 3.5% interest per month.

Of course, you should really only borrow if you absolutely need to – but if you’re having trouble and there’s an emergency, always try to look for the cheapest options.

Some charities such as Turn2Us will help connect you with grants that can help pay for appliances and other furniture for free.

“My washing machine exploded and I was having a hard time at the time,” Tracy said.

“I paid Fair For You now. It was half the price compared to if I had stayed somewhere else like Brighthouse.”

Tracey says she has around £1,000 to pay off before she is fully debt free – but says she is relieved to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

She says her advice to anyone in debt is to not put your head in the sand and tackle your problems head on.

“If you have to, call the company you owe money to and explain your situation,” she said.

“Most companies will be able to offer you a refund plan and that will keep them away from you. This means that you also pay them something.

“You have to be realistic and budget properly – calculate how much you have and how much you can afford.

“I work overtime at my job, so I can pay off the rest of my debt quickly.”

How to Get Free Debt Help

Don’t suffer in silence if you’re in debt and really don’t know where to turn – seek free, professional advice.

Always be wary of companies that try to charge you for debt help, as you can get advice without paying a dime.

Inside the new bar and grill restaurant that “brings the States to Bolton”

Huge hot dogs, TVs showing American sports and ‘moonshine’ cocktails will be the order of the day as a brand new bar and restaurant opens in central Bolton.

51Fifty officially opens its doors this weekend (December 4) at the former Blind Tiger site in Nelson Square.

Co-owner Chris Walker promises it will look like “nothing else” currently in town and has admitted its theme is unabashedly inspired by American culture.

Talk to Manchester Evening News, Before the bar launched, Chris said: “The idea behind this is something that I have wanted to do for years and years.

51Fifty is in the former Blind Tiger venue in Nelson Square

“I spent quite a bit of time in the States, but due to the restrictions I couldn’t get over it… so I just thought about bringing it here.

“There is nothing like it here.

“Here we only have pubs and restaurants, there everything is combined with music, televisions with sports.”

Inside the site there are a large number of televisions showing sports such as American football and ice hockey. There’s also a game room on the upper level, with pool tables, fruit machines, and a pinball machine.

Its decor includes motorcycles and a mix of country and rap music played through the speakers.

The owners’ sense of humor also shines through with messages around the bar such as “no great story begins with someone eating a salad”

“A few people who passed by came over and said it looked great,” Chris added.

The decor of the place includes motorcycles

“We don’t want it to be completely perfect. We like it to be a little offbeat. We love to laugh. We want it to have that dive bar feel.

“We have a late license, but we’ll stay open as long as people go through the doors and have fun.”

In addition to foot-long hot dogs, the menu includes burgers, nachos, wings and tater tots.

Desserts include lime pie and churros, while cocktails are made with “moonshine,” a type of alcohol named after alcohol sold illegally during the Prohibition era.

Speaking more about the menu, Chris said, “Our chef is really good and he’s spent a lot of time in the US He knows the presentation and feel of food.

Menu includes foot-long hot dogs, burgers and chicken wings

“The hot dogs here are usually full of bullshit, but over there they actually use beef and they are more red in color. They are also ridiculously big.

“The burgers we have are not American, but they won awards and the wing sauces are imported from the United States.”

It wasn’t easy for Chris and his business partner Brett Bortoft.

After taking over the venue in March 2021, they initially planned for a June opening date, but that had to be pushed back as the scale of the renovation became clear to them.

“This place came up and we talked about it over a few beers and we just thought ‘shit’ let’s give it a try,” Chris said.

“There was no roof, there was four feet of water in the cellar, you could even tell from the outside that it was gloomy.

“Me and Brett sat down with the owner and they were behind our vision. They have been very good to us.

“We just hope it’s a place where people can come and have a good time.”
