I desperately need help with a budget for a family of 5!
My family and I are bringing in $1200-$1700 a month which is not much at all!
We are now having to cut our internet,house phone, and cable on the 19th of this month.
We lowered our minutes for txting and have no internet on our cells anymore or any extra charges, can't recieve or send pics anymore.
We are now having to have full coverage on 1 vehicle, and liability one the other, used to be full coverage on both. But that is still $160 a month with the lowest car insurance around in our area.
Also! We pay $835 a month for rent includes water, we don't have to pay sewer, garbage, or water.
We spend $170 a month just for gas back and forth to work.
We spend about $280 a month on food. If lucky otherwise it's just $80 a month.:(
We have doctor bills we pay on $70 a month is the max, and... my husband racked up a bunch from not having insurance.
We never have money pud money we are behind it's only $100 a month, on top of cigs which my husband spends like $80 a month, but.. our household items are like $50 a month at least and we cut back sooo much anyway.
As you can tell we are so low on income to cover our needs.
