We're so broke this month I just stole toilet paper

..... from our local park.

:(

We made some shitty spending choices recently, well, late last year, and we're slowly but surely paying everything off...

This month we got it down to two C.C. having balances of 2000 each, and another one having a 4200 balance

So with our 4163. Tax returns we paid off both the 2000 C.C..s

The only debt we have (beside car and mortgage) is the one CC with 4200 owed

We paid all our bills this month and made a 500 payment for the last CC so it's 4200 instead of 4700

But now we're super broke, and instead of putting more stuff on the CC, I stole the toilet paper from a park...

=/

Next month (April) I get 2300 for financial aid, and with my husband's paycheck we will be debt free and have enough to cover all our needs and put about 100 in savings..

I feel so defeated, but we're so close to being out of this mess

And for those of you that still ask, yes we cut up the CCs

It's a shitty situation all around, but at least it's slowly getting better.

Why didn't u just use cloth? A thief is a thief no matter if the item is big or small. Hell rinsing with water would have been better then stealing.

It sucks being down in the dumps, but there's a light at the end so if stealing toilet paper gets you by then do it.

Wow! Sorry. We've been thru some tough times. Luckily my mom keeps a stock pile of TP and paper towels I can get.

Thanks guys... this really sucks, I never thought we'd ever be at this low point.
I hate this, I was raised so much better than this...

I've been so broke before we've gone without toilet paper for a month. Just took a lot of "whore baths".
