My MIL has been at the same job for about 10 years. Yet, she is always low on money. I don't understand why she can't budget out her bills? I'd mind my own business, but it affects us because she has to ask for money so that her 16 year old daughter gets her basic needs met. Now that my SIL is older she is looking for a job, but now we all fear that my SIL is just going to be another person that my MIL will mooch off of for the rest of her life.
I just don't understand. She knows how much she is going to make each month. Why can't she set a budget to that? I'd understand more if she had just lost her job, or had a crisis, but I mean come on. Same job for 10 years and she can't make basic needs? Ugh.
