Financial trouble.

We were doing good a couple months ago. We were paying all bills and nothing was behind and now I can barely have money to pay rent and my husband is still making the same amount of money as before. We haven't done anything different but for some reason it seems like the money is gone the only difference is he gets paid biweekly now instead of weekly. Anyone have any ideas to help me out.

  • We just went from weekly to bi-weekly, and we had the same issue. I had to change our budget around to make sure the money was "even" through out the month. Look at your bills and when they are do, and move some if you can to help space them out. It took me 3 months to get everything under control again!

  • I agree. You're going to have to make a budget and maybe rearrange when bills get paid.

  • I am having the same problem. I am also thinking "WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON? WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY GOING?" I think I will start budgeting. I think that would be good for you too.

  • You have to find a business that you can do from home and works for you and your family.

    This is what is working for us:
    There is a way, that you and I can build and earn a residual income on energy bills. The company right now is in TX, GA, and just came to PA a few weeks ago. We will be going into a new state every 3-6 months. Let's get together for a cup of coffee and we can watch a webinar - email me at This is an exciting time for people who position themselves with this company.
