Won't be able to pay my bills on their due dates, but we will have Christmas. EDIT: Nevermind we have a solution.

DH and I are scrambling to figure out a timeline to pay our bills so nothing gets shut off this month. We are categorizing them, sorting through them etc.

We were so concerned with making sure the kids had a good Christmas that we kinda screwed ourselves.

Hopefully we can make this work...

Anyone else in this boat?


EDIT: I am taking a paycheck advance, which we will easily be able to pay back in January. 


Don't know why I didn't think of that before.

Oh and a "good Christmas" in this house is not a "big Christmas". It is making sure each kid had a few things to unwrap.

No.
I carry a credit on all my bills. I wouldn't end up in a situation like this over something as stupid as not budgeting for Xmas.
