  • I think everybody has issues with anxiety over money. It's a completely normal thing!

  • Not so much anymore. We started the Dave Ramsey program about 2 years ago- paid off all our debt and now we're working on building our emergency fund. It's amazing how much more relaxed we are about money. It's just not a stressful subject now that we actually have some.

  • All the time. I'm actually sitting here crying right now b/c our AC unit just crapped out and we have no money. DH works 2 jobs, I work 1 job (about 50 hours a week) and yet we still have no idea how we are going to afford to fix it. Our paycheck are already gone (with no groceries) until we get paid again on Friday. I'm sick of living paycheck to paycheck. We only got in debt when we were both unemployed and had no other choice but to rack up debt, just to feed our children and keep the lights on.

  • I used to. Normally I haven't had to. This past month was rough thanks to my husbands spending on things that weren't necessary like 400$ worth of video games grrrrr. That is ok though. I am making him sell all his other games now

  • yes, we make plenty of money to pay all of our bills but my SO has an addiction to chew and all our extra money goes to that :(

    Answer by angela.bouchard at 2:22 AM on Jul. 4, 2011

  • Not anymore. My husband and I are older now and have become very responsible with money. We never live outside our means, have no debt, and have savings. 5 years ago it wasn't like this.
