  • My husband was without a job for about half a month. So money is tight, but all the bills are paid and we've got food to eat. Thank goodness!

  • We are broke and in chronic debt. Things could be worse for you (and for me for that matter). Just make the most with what you have. I hope you have a good Christmas.

  • yUP YUP! And it doesn't matter how much money you make - I know ALOT of people who make a bus load of money and are just as broke as I am. It sucks....but it does comfort ME to know that I am not the only one!

  • Strangly, not too bad, but still tight. This time of year can be stressful on the pocketbook!

  • I am sorry life is tough these days, can't say that I am broke, my husband is self employed and makes good money, but I am sure you are not alone here.......

  • I get paid on the 1st and am always broke a few days later. Its just a matter of deciding which bills to pay and doling the money out.

  • Yes same here! So far weve only gotten 2 prsents for our son. Not sure what our next check look like....how much more we can afford to spend on Christmas. We just had to borrow $1000 from our boss to buy a new van because our other crapped out on us.
