Okay, I know some people will be annoyed by this but I have to ask. How do people make it on so little money? I am on mat leave for a yr with my baby and 4yr old. This yr I'll be paid about $30k in benifits and top-up pay. That's a little more than a $60k pay cut. My husband makes over $100k but we are feeling the pinch. I don't know how people make it on less.
I know it should be enough money but each month when I pay the bills we have nothing left. I've cut back on spending but it isn't enough. I live in fear of having to go into debt. We've never owed any money except for our house mortgage which is less than $170k. We don't buy new vehicles (my husband bought his last vehicle in highschool and drove it for 18 yrs), we don't go on extravagant vacations, I don't wear designer clothes, I only buy the kids toys on birthdays and Christmas. Where does it all go?
Any tips on cutting back?
