we'd have a heck of a lot more if we'd stop eating out two or three times a week, sometimes more. we pay all our bills first though so that's never a problem but i'd like to have more than a grand in cushion if i could.

So very sorry :( check out churches for school supplies. I know our church in conjunction with the archdioses is collecting supplies. One less thing you'll have to worry about.

Quoting dawnjohnson5:

Life is bad right now.



I was able to get stuff for the kids to eat sandwhiches for a few days.



I have no clue how I am going to do school supplies or birthdays. All of their birthdays are in July, August and October. There are six of them.



The husband left us all and I am trying to find a job. Any job.



Hopefully, things will turn around.

I will definitely look into that.

I am going to call the school administration on Monday to see if I can talk with anyone.

We're not making it. I'm looking for work. My husband is supporting us all and my mom who is looking for work and he's making three dollars an hour less than he used to. We need jobs NOW or we could have to lose the house in a few months.
