at last the economy has hit us...help! :(

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So my dhs awesome new job just layed off pretty much anyone thats been there less then a year.



:(



Were already behind on bills from me being on bedrest/maternity leave



I already called my work and told them to if theres any call ins to call me first.



Dh and i both are going to the plasma clinic in the morning



Weve started craigslisting things.



Were calling in the morning to cancel netflix and internet...after one last night of movie marathons



Then spending the weeking applying everywhere







We can use any and all tips on supplementing income











Also i have an account set up that automaticly takes 200$ a month out of my pay check into a savings account i cant touch and they give me s check for the balance. Would it be wiser to continue this account or stop it so we have the extra 200$ each month



Called to Cancel home internet and netflix today. They shut it off in a couple days they talked me into finishing off the billing cycle. My dd is going to be pissed but she needs to seriously cut down on the screen time anyway.



Any ideas for indoor winter activities?





I calculated it out and between dh and i we spend about 150$ a month on soda! Thats crazy! Time start liking water. Or finding cheaper pop

you said you were recovering from bedrest/maternity leave. So you can't sell your plasma, it has to do with you needing your iron in the plasma. Good luck!

if you are nursing. Go to WIC and see all extra jewelry and clothes and good luck

I just had my house phone hooked up today. Good luck! We have been through similar things. It will get better.

I wouldn't jump into selling the house, with the market you might not get much for it and it might not sell for months, and create more stress right now.

I think its smart to look through your storage and sell items you dont need.

Coupon, it can take a couple of months to really get the hang of it and build a stock of coupons. But its something you and the hubby can do together.

Maybe offer services, house cleaning or garden work.

Baby sitting?
