He brings home $500 a week before overtime. Our bills are about $1500 a month not including food.
We were saving up for a house but because of state 1 time homeowner money and our 700+ credit score we got the house with out a huge down payment. So we have about $1600 still in that account.
We live well within our means and only have 1 child. I am a SAHM.
When I was growing up we had $75 to last us til payday every week to feed 3 kids. That was poor.
I'm just sick of hearing "money's tight". No its not!!
EDIT: Okay, I'm poor. But happy for now. When LO gets bigger we will reconsider me getting a job.
