What to do......???????!!!!!!

Ok. so.......I've been a mom for over 4 years and I feel it's the most rewarding thing ever. I have laerned to love others and not be selfish. I've always bought my clothes at thift stores just so that my girls and my family could get through like with bills and clothes for them. I came across a store that I absolutly love. All of my clothes is worn out. I clicked on everything I wanted and it came out to $900. I'm getting 2,000 in Decemember from a Deposit that is going to be refunded to me. I wanted to use half for me, my girls and pay off maxed credit cards and save my tax refund like all of it. Because my husband owes money and I live in California they are going to take half of my money to pay for his debt! So I'm not even goign to be able to save that much. With our financial status Idk that I'm ever going to be able to go shopping or that I'm ever going to be able to save monthly. I was so excited and now I'm depressed

  • Don't know what you're asking?

    I would suggest going to a non-profit consumer credit counseling service for help with the bills. Your profile says La Mesa...California? Here's the closest one for you:

    These folks will help you with a payment plan and budget.

  • thank you, I guess I wanted reassurance on weather to spend that money on myself or not, If I don't do it I'm never going to be able to shop and if I don't save I don't know if I'll ever be able to save either. so I don't know which to do.

  • Saving is always better. Because once it's gone, it's gone. You can spend slowly later when you get really great deals. Or keep your eyes open for free clothes. We have freecycle and church give aways near us. Very helpful especially for kid's things. You can pass things on your kid's outgrow to help others too.

  • I started last year selling Scentsy the wickless candle for extra money. I do mainly basket parties which is sending out a basket set to someone who works and picking it up within a week and enter the orders. We can do on-line, home parties and fundraisers. Scentsy was made for the stay at home/career mom. It's a great product and 1 1/2 yrs later I now am at the point that I take orders from my customers and some call me for my baskets.
    Scentsy is an easy product to sell bcause we ALL hve candles & Scentsy is SAFE! So we sell!
    You make 20% starting out, then 25% to 30% plus trips, bonus's & free product from Scentsy. We hve ladies frm other party plans coming to us bcause our compensation & freebies are better & Scentsy is easier to sell with return biz. I can help w/any questions & visit me @ www.scentsy.com/6401
    You can work when U want, it's your BIZ.
