My very one and only last pair of jeans tore to the point of no return last night. I AM SCREWED. All I have left is 2 pairs of shorts. I AM BEHIND ON THE BILLS (thanks DH) and we are flat broke even though I work my butt off. I would have had the extra cash last week to buy a new pair, but I bought my kiddos some clothes instead. Anyway...thanks for reading. I JUST needed to tell someone.

How about a second hand shop?

I would try scraping some even alittle money together and trying maybe a salvation army. That is where I have gotten alot of my jeans for as low as 35 cents. Try to find out when they have their half price days and go that day i do it all the time because i would rather spend the money on my children and then realize i have nothing to wear. Good luck i hope you can get some pants.

Do you have a few DVD's you could trade at Good Will or something? Offer them a trade for old kid clothes or something? If you bought new ones I'm guessing you have ones they don't fit in anymore.

I save my spare change for reasons like this. Thrift shops have pretty decent jeans and it's something to get you by until you have the money to get a pair you like

There is no salvation army near by.

What did your husband do to put you behind on your bills?

Where do you live and what size do you wear? Maybe someone near by has some extra pants I do if you live in my area.
