  • Yeah, I'm broke too and not because of Christmas either, I forked over 1100.00 at the beginning of the month to get our house back(long story) and I have not gotten any of my deposits back from moving the first time..ugh. Looks like court is the only thing that is gonna get our security deposit back.

  • I feel your pain. I have 12 dollars left in my checking until the end of the month and it is not because of christmas either. We had a leak in the house and now we have a massive eletrical problem, so ya, now we are broke.

  • 660 for a 2 bedroom isn't bad. We spend 875 for our 2 bedroom. I only have $3 til payday luckily that's tomorrow and we don't need anything.

One year i wanna be able to afford to decorate and put gifts under the tree!

  • You can always get more money!

    But saver the time you will spend with your family always because when that is gone it is gone!

    Many wishes Merry Christmas to you and family!
