Monthly budget EDIT for the judgmental bashers edit again EDIT #3 Final edit
For the bashers of us being on PA
We don't need anything and that is all that counts. And DDs doesn't want for anything. Try explaining to you child why the pet they love is gone. And tell your husband he can't have the things he works for. Its 103.00 a month, which hubby more than pays for with taxes from his pay check.
33.00 health insurance
31.00 life insurance
16.00 renters insurance
300.00 heat(10 months out of the year)
The rest of our 2000.00 goes for everything we need, we have no extras and get 70.00 a month for food stamps. We are a family of three. I feel like we are doing pretty damn good.
Hubby and I have not bought any clothing/shoes/or personal items since being on PA that wasn't thrift or consignment, which is 2 years.
Last cloths shopping for DD was 150.00, we pay 25.00 a month co-pays for meds, 6-6.50 for one way cab fair to appointments we can't walk to( two or three a month for hubby's medical needs), household cleaners we spend 25.00 a month, I cut DH and DDs hair I don't get my hair done. With all of this added up as well as adding in roughly 400.00 for food we have nothing left over.
