We're a family of 5- DH, myself, ds 6, dd will be 2 on Aug 4, and ds is 2.5 months (breastfed). So we have 2 lo's in diapers but dd is doing some potty learning and we cloth diaper part time to help with costs.
Through the next 3.5 weeks we're even tighter and after our expected bills, we have approx $116 a week to cover groceries, gas, and anything 'extra' at all- no treats, nothing extra for our dd's birthday (she's only turning 2 though). We spend about $40 a week on gas with no extra trips, so that leaves us with **$76** for all groceries and household items, and to cover anything that might come up.
I know its possible but I'm feeling so tired of having things be tight and then to turn around and realize its only going to get TIGHTER! I coupon like crazy already. I feel like we can't cut back any further, there's nothing else to cut!! O.o
Help! I'm majorly in need of some encouragement here!
