This week we were down to $45.

Except- I just got out of the ER with a kidney infection so ... Now we have $0.

make your own cloth diaper using T-shirts and maybe a maxi-pads and give him the $9 for gas.  I would let my baby have naked time and just have towels around.

I was out of money for this week, weeks ago.

I budget and stick to it. i have everything planned for a "worst case scenario" up until Feb when I KNOW for a fact things will get better for us. hopefully a lot sooner than that but i cant see the futute. 

Every bill will be paid. food in everyones bellies. roof over thier heads and diapers on their butts (well the baby's). i have $0 wiggle room and absolutely no money to spend on things that we dont need. but were going to get through it. 

The times i couldnt make it work, i asked for help. offered to clean a family members house or baby sit in exchange for whatever it was we needed. its 4 days. it shouldnt be that hard to make it work. get a cheapy bag of diapers from the dollar store, and walk instead of drive as much as possible.

Awwh it's going to be ok.
Do you have any food banks around? Sometimes they have diapers and ect.
Or make your own cloth diapers and give the 9$ to your dh for gas.
Or maybe ask a neighbour if you could borrow a 20 and give it back on Thursday.
