We have to move I can't stay here any longer in this house or neighborhood

Car note both combined is $400 ( 2 vehicles )
Insurance full,coverage on both $165
Electric is about $150-200 ( depending on time of year)
Medical for kids is $22
Water $80 ( don't ask that was this month and I don't know why it is so high)
Cell phone $162
Internet $60
Gas for a month is around $500
Food $400-500
Misc $400 ( include dog food, hygiene products ,cleaning products, copays for meds and doctors

My current rent is $750

So everything is almost $3000 a month give or take

Income between $4000-4500 a month .

I have to figure out how to come up with first, last and security plus we have around $1000 coming out this week for repairs on a vehicle .

So you have $1000-$1500 extra each month. Save it until you have enough to move.

Where do you live? Based on calling money notes it's not the US so specify and you will get more help. There are groups on CM for your general area to help you.. And some of us can do the maths to figure out the best long term solutions but again,we have to know where you are.

I don't know if I can stay here another 2-3 months without losing my mind

We're trying to not be paycheck to paycheck . it took us a long time to get here. And with other expenses we can't do more than $800-850. Which is fine but first last and security is killer

You said you have at least 1000 left over every month. Where does that go?

That our current income
I Never said how long it has been like that. Like I said it took us a long time to get here at this point.

When I said we are trying to not be paycheck to paycheck that means it has been like that.

And all because our income is higher doesn't mean we can outrageous rent.

Where i live 800-850 would be a 1 bedroom apt. It's all relative to where you live.
