I might have to. Right now my dh, our son and I live with my parents. My brother will graduate college this may and will most likely move back. It is a three bedroom house. It is allready crowded and we have been here over a year. We can't afford our own place without assistance and it won't be an option to stay once my brother is back. I am really nervous how it will work. We would have to buy a second car so I can work more b/c right now I just work about 17 hours around my husbands schedule. We would have to put our ds in daycare. Which I am fine with. I actually really want to work more. But I don't think we can afford another car and daycare abd extra gas. I did the math and I'd make about the same I do now. So we would have to have food stamps and some sort of cash assistance for rent and utilities. I just don't know what to do. What would you do? No bashing please I just need advice. Oh, also I want to go back to school this year to get certified as a rad tech it is two years. But I can't if I have to work full time. There is no one to watch my da outside of 8-5 which is daycare hours. Advice? I am very stressed.

Why haven't you been working and saving while living with your parents for the last YEAR?

Why are you assuming you will get extra money for rent? The lists for section 8 vouchers are closed all over the country.  Where do you live?

We save as much as we can but there isn't much left over. We still help out with money every month so after all our bills we almost break even. I'm not assuming anything. And I live in sc

They do have public housing you can get into-but In many areas it isn't anywhere you would want to live.

How about you the husband and your BROTHER (third income) all move in-will he have a job?

Yeah I know the only apartment complex here that is like that I refuse to live in. It is dangerous. I couldn't even walk alone. I doubt my brother would go for that. Idk if he will find a job right away.
