  • 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.
