We just got notice that 4 of our bills are going to be substantially raised. I'm going to pick up extra hours at work, but what else can we do? And it's not luxury bills. Health insurance, water/sewage, gas and property taxes. Our savings is already pretty much gone because of some unexpected expenses earlier this year, so I'm really panicking. We do coupon for groceries, though not extreme. We have a food supply set up. I just don't know what to do about our other bills. Our gas, for cars, is $161 more than we spent before my husband took a job further away. We looked into public transportation but he doesn't have the flexibility on time to make it work. He's currently looking for a closer job, but that's stressful. We don't spend more than we have. I honestly can't think of where to cut back! Help!

 Do you have anything you could sell on Craigslist?
