OK, so I make 1,000 a month and I know this may sound like a strange question, but I am having a difficult time trying to balance it out ( I am new on budgeting and paying bills, just got out of a divorce) I do not shop for anything extra (like new clothes for myself, only for my child) and new haircut but somehow, in the end, I am lucky if I have 20 bucks left. Sometimes I am down to only 5 bucks. Where I live, the average person makes about 30,000 a year. Anyone like me and knows ways to pay for everything but have more left over? I do not own a credit card so my debts are low. I pay for the basic household bills, food, and gas and when my growing child needs clothes (which is about every 3 -5 months). I shop at second hand stores too. Any tips would be great! Thanks in advance.
