  • $700/month? With 3 children & husband I just don't see that possible. If I had no family to help (to temporarily live with while I got on my feet) I would seek for some type of PA, that is what is there for, for families that need it.

  • Apply for food stamps, WIC, subsidized daycare while I was at work, and ask if I can move in with a family member for a preset amount of rent.

  • Find employment as soon as possible .......if at all possible...

    It would be impossible for my family to live off of that. That amount wouldn't even cover our rent.

  • Have you thought about maybe finding a part time job working the hours when you husband is home, so you won't have to pay childcare I worked for ten years on the night shift so I could help out. Have you checked in to food stamps. check out this site see if they are in your area. It will save you money on food

  • Ladies, I really enjoy your responses... I was just curious because I was at work earlier taking a call from a women in this same position.... It really made me reflect on how much I might complain about where I am not in life, but there is always someone else who is doing much worse than you! So I am very thankful for where I am in life with a smile =)
