I wish I had the time to do something like that. At the minute we have only one realistic option on the table and that is find a job abroad in a country where cost of living is cheaper. I am a relatively niche type of engineer so shouldn't find it too difficult to get a job abroad, the secret is getting your foot in the door to get them to take a chance on you. I am working on it as we speak.
My future in the UK is pretty bleak though as I am classed as a lower middle income earner yet my wage doesn't spread past the basics.

Oh, and your honesty is applauded too.
Good yarn mate
