Our food stamps have run out and got denied for reapproval. My husband has a job but doesn't make enough to cover everything and we were relying on that to feed our kids. I have been trying to find a job but it has been hard so I started working from home but that is not going so well. We are losing our house and I feel like nothing is going to get better. Anyone else in the same boat or has been in the same situation. Does it get better? What did you do to get out of it?Answer Question

Well, 1st I wanted to give you a Hug then I wanted you to know to look at your churches to see if they can help with any food. We have a church here that I know of might be others also that has a free food program for people in need.I have never been in this postion but I would buy the cheapest of anything I could find just to get by Mac & Cheese, Ramon noodles, cheapest cereal anything that I could think of that was Ultra cheap. Might not be the healthiest but at least the kids would be fed. Look into your area shelters see what they have to offer. I would also cut back on EVERYTHING i could internet, phone, cable Good Luck!

We were in a loosing our house situation (we will NEVER work with Countrywide again) when the house market began to fall about 3 years ago. We gave up the house, filed bankruptcy to avoid being penalized the $50,000 that Countrywide took off the cost of the house when they bought if from themselves and rented for a while. We just bought another house much closer to hubby's work and that we could pay cash for.
It will get better. For now, talk to your local ministerial alliance or visit a food bank in your area. Apply for free/reduced school lunches if your kids are in school and check out this menu that can feed your family for $70 a week. http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/70dollarmenu.htm
