How do you NOT have any money??

I have this friend of sorts. We see each other every few months to let our kids play. She makes $30 an hour and works constantly and her husband has two jobs and they NEVER have any money. They defintiely make more then I do and somehow I can afford more things then them and their rent and other costs are much cheaper then ours.

I just want to shake her sometimes and comment on her Facebook status saying "So hungry, no food, no money" and tell her to learn how to better manage her money instead of buying a bunch of random crap that isn't needed.

I would say, "how can someone who makes $30 an hour not have any food in their house?"

I used to think this about my sister and BIL. They made twice what we did, and only had one daughter while we had three kids.her husband spent money like crazy! They had random crap all the time. It was ridiculous.she is now divorced, and has tons of money, and savings! It literally was all him buying stupid ass shit.

Wow that sucks :( maybe they should take some classes on budgeting or something. Maybe you could find it and ask her to "take it with you"?

My husband has made $60.000 a year for the past two years, at $28 an hour and times for us still get very hard.
