I will get food stamps which will help a lot! 300 a month.
But I need to pay Rent/ water
2 dr. Bills a month
Cable is a want but could do net flicks it might be way cheaper
Internet which is 50 right now
Car Insurance 215 a month plus renters insurance
Cell Phones 120 a month. But we are trying to lower it to like 50-70 a month now.
And my husbands ticket he is paying 30 dollars on.
How can I live making this much a month?
We were making 2,500 a month now in April it will only be 1000 because of my unpaid maternity leave. I'm afraid I might have to move in with my parents and don't want to have to do that. It might cause marital conflicts?
I need some advice finacially.

You have to cut back on everything separate the wants from the needs you can also apply for leap which helps with your electricity, & while your on maternity leave if your up to you can provide child care and bring in a little extra cash or turn a hobbie into money good luck
