You have ever been?? We have had to choose between rent and food many times.
not bad. When we had tough times dh and I both got 2nd jobs. We worked crazy hours but it kept us with our heads above water.
After me and my, now, husband broke up for a year I struggled a bit. It was never to the point where I had to choose between food and shelter or anything (my grandparents owned my last two places of residence) but getting them the rent on time was a hassle. So I got a roomate, and graduated school. Then I moved half way across the country (I left the house to said room mate) and started a better job. Everything fell back into place.
Anytime we've had to get food stamps, UGH.
Same as you. Bills or food, then when we had the food we sometimes only fed the kids. We didn't eat.
