Have you ever had to ask for help?

For groceries or paying a bill? Rent maybe? The way the economy is right now, I wonder if people know how bad others are struggling?

  • Before my husband graduated from college, money was pretty tight. Our parents helped out with things for our son every once in a while.

  • Yes. But like AmazingAmanda said, for something unexpected. And we paid my parents back right away.

  • Only once. We were buying our house and had all the money we needed for the down payment and closing, but no extra. We borrowed $1000 from my parents, ended up not needing it and paid it back when we got our next paycheck.
