So I am in dire financial straits. I got divorced and am living in "our" house until it sells, which also means im making the payment alone, plus electric, etc. Car payment, ins, childcare, etc etc. I do get child support. Its enough to cover the child care. I have been really struggling, having like $20-$30 left out of every paycheck for gas and groceries/diapers. I do get WIC so that helps with expensive stuff like milk. I dont get FS tho. So I decided to cut out almost all my fun stuff. I cut my blockbuster mail account, my internet, my dish, im switching to a pay as you go plan instead of AT&T, im raised my deductibles on my car ins to lower the payment (I will put them back once im in a better position because it scared me, lol). All in all, cutting all those things, I am saving about $250 a month. This is a huge relief to me even tho with no tv or internet or movies coming in the mail, im going to be VERY bored. LOL! Guess I will have to start reading all those books I have laying around! Now someone just needs to BUY MY HOUSE!!!
