This month and last had been shitty for us... I was not able to work but a week last month due to medical issues so that cut into our income big time. So this month we're playing catch up and we'll be doing the same next month.... I hate it.

 we do live paycheck to paycheck but i've become a savvy shopper so we can have a bit left every month to do something with the kids like $1 movies, bowling, put put, etc.  always with coupons though.  couldn't afford to do anything if it wasn't for coupons! ;o)

we do live paycheck to pay check, sometimes we struggle, like within the past year we had to get a washer/ dryer, and a new fridge because they all went...

I am fortunate though, my father sends me checks out of blue, every so often, needless to say my dad is set for life, and sometimes just needs to get rid of money (has to do with, how much he allowed to have in his accounts at one time), so I will get an email,I sent you a check ,watch for it in the mail..Thankfully its usually atleast $1000, that helps so much, or like, he offered to pay for the oldest's  senior portraits..

 My mom used to help me some even tho she was just on SS she didn't have many expenses.  she's gone now and i  have nobody to kick in money even for emergencies.  You are really fortunate.
