After looking for a job for so long I had an interview today. I got the job! Yay right? no. It conflicts with DH's schedule so I have no one to watch my kids on saturday from 1030am-5pm. DH works 2 jobs and we only have one car. All of my family and his live in a diff state. I am trying to get vouchers for daycare because we literally have no money to pay for daycare or a sitter. However that process could take awhile and I have to have a job before we can even apply. So i had my boss fill out the paperwork today but was told it could take up to 1 month before its approved. So im literally fucked. No one to watch the kids and we desperatly need me to work because we are in the hole financially. DH makes only $1500 a month and our house payment is $600 of that and our car is $550. I have no fucking idea what to do and im so lost. We are slowly sinking financially. We never spend on anything but necessities and are even having a hard time buying them, we get FS and WIC but that only covers a portion of everything.
And the car payment and house payment are binded with contracts. We got the car when we werent having as bad of a time financially and now we cant even afford to have the damn thing. Also the only thing that we have that isn't a necessity is internet but that is only $50 a month and DH won't let that go. We don't have cell phones or cable or anything. What can we cut down on to help save some money??? IM DESPERATE right now!
I cant sell my car. We are binded by contract and have the title but the car company owns it for right now. When we pay it off i can sell it.
I live in Jonesboro Arkansas, for those that have offered to help i appreciate it, sadly i do not live near any of you.
Also just because my house payment is $600 doesnt mean its a crappy house. So for those who suggest that my house is a shit hole can go fuck themselves. Im not here to prove myself to anyone, im here looking for advice on what to do in my situation. All i want to do is help provide for my family so we can get back on our feet and not have to be on assistance anymore.
DH asked one of his coworkers if she would watch the kids for free on Saturday and she said she would be more than happy to! I know this girl and she is great with kids. So she is coming to our house Saturday morning to watch them so they are a little more comfortable. Both of my kids have awful seperation issues with me, Like i can't even go pee and close the bathroom door without both of them crying. So this is gonna be tough.
I have found a daycare that charges $50 a week for up to 15 hours for both kids and accepts vouchers so hoping to get all of the paper work done by thursday so we can get vouchers ASAP.
