  • Christmas can be wonderful without money spent- baking and watching Christmas movies, driving around to look at the lights...

    about 3 years ago we were BROKE and my teens told me they weren't worried about the "stuff" as much as the activities I just listed. Christmas was fine-and I only was able to spend about 60 or 70 dollars on each of them

  • Wow...I was trying to make a point that my kids weren't worried about it-
    I had to seriously scrimp and figure out ways to come up with it- and I started months before the holiday- it wasn't like I jsut had 120.00 all at once
    I spent 2.00 here and 5.00 there-

    I hope you can find another job- but try to focus on other ways to make the holiday rather than gifts

  • I try! But it is hard! Especially since we lost our link card! We make just over the thresh hold which is 19,000! I pray every day!

  • Ahh Dancer I am so sorry,, where all have you looked? I was at Starbucks yesterday, and they are hiring, also I know with the Christmas holiday coming up there will be more jobs, of course before I took one, I would ask about the chances after Christmas? How are you finding places to apply? I would call a temp service,, 2 of my friend have gotten permanent jobs that way.

  • The thing with retail (as far as I know) is the more availability you have- the better
    so -if you have another job-that takes away from your availability.
