 so ladies, those of you who make minimum wage living off of 1 income. How do you make it work? How do you make your bills and still have enough left for gas and misc.. stuff for the house?

I am seriously trying to figure out how to make this work, and i am lost.

No idea. I have not made minimum wage since I was 15. I am now 32. I would think you would need two minimum wage paying jobs to make ends meet. Sorry mama, that has got to be hard. :(

few years ago I wouldn't have thought I would be trying to live off minimum wage either.

When they get help with everything else, those things are easier to purchase with your salary.

I use to make $10 a hour and I had housing, food stamps and daycare voucher. That is really the only way it can work. I am not bashing them getting help if they work!! I was there too.
