My hours just got cut at my job so now I'm down to 16-25 hours a week. I have a one year old son and get no county assistance. What are some ways i can save money? I already got rid of cable and internet. I'm jist so lost on what to do.

Start couponing, carpool to work if possible, buy food during sales,etc. Do you have any savings you can use if needed?

I don't have any savings I've already used all of it sadly. And now I'm living paycheck to paycheck.

You may qualify for assistance now that your hours are cut. Wouldn't hurt to check.

Hit up some food pantries to help out with your food budget and diapers.

Can you babysit other kids on your days off?

Can you find another part-time job?

Do you know anyone that you could let in as a roommate, to help share the costs?

I would start here. Or even look for a full time job and leave the current one. Good luck.

Have you tried to get assistance? You could qualify for them since your hours are cut now.

 this is what I was thinking as well. either find another part time job or maybe find a full time job to replace the part time job altogether. Good luck! I was there myself several years ago and it was hard.
