I don't know what to do!

Me and my family are having it rough! It just seems like we never get cut a break . My husband's job is finally picking up ...Thank God but like this week we have no money for groceries and I am going to go to a food pantry and see if i can get help but i don't know if they have enough or i don't know if it has been long enough. I really hate feeling like this b/c it feels like i can't do anything for my family! I just need your thoughts and prayers ladies! and also any advice wouldn't hurt either! I just want to feel like i can at least get groceries for my family. thanks ladies i am glad i could at least vent on here

  • I'm sorry honey I know how you feel can you apply for food-stamps? I know it can be embarrassing sometimes but thats what it is there for. When you need help and need to feed your kids you have to do everything you can to keep them healthy and yourself. Good luck I am praying for you.

  • Have you thought about being creative and starting your own business for extra cash? You can print out fliers and put them up around town. Maybe to clean houses, walk dogs, babysit, grocery shopping for the elderly and siabled, etc. My parents pay people $100 to come in every other week and do the floors, dust, and bathrooms. They also provide supplies. If you're starting out small, you don't need insurance right away. I know in WI if you make more than $500 a year at one job, you're supposed to claim it. You might not have to pay alot on it, but it's still income. I also have EBooks and job ideas on my blog. http://www.tarasextraincome.blogspot.com There's a banner on there for cashcrate. That's free.
