I get food stamps, I go to two different food banks a month, I search for coins and lost jewelry, (I got a metal detector on wish upon a hero), and I have a huge jar filled with coins, jewelry I check for lost on Craigslist and if it's real gold I sell it at the place here that buys gold.

I get WIC, go to the clothing bank, get free school supplies at the Salvation Army, plus haircuts. Every year I get gift cards for Payless and get my kids new shoes and I get two pairs per kid, because both food banks give them out.

On wish upon a hero I ask for school clothes and place up wish lists and boom usually we get it.

Christmas I get toys for tots, the Christmas bureau and go asking on wish upon a hero and Craigslist.

Thanksgiving I get free dinner making stuff from 3 separate places so I end up with tons of food.

I get monetary assistance, I get spousal support from my ex (even though I am dating this guy and I refuse to marry him because spousal support), my boyfriend pays for our housing. And I'm in HUD housing anyway so it's cheaper!

I buy dollar store stuff and sell it for $10-$20 saying its homemade on Etsy.

Ex dh is paying cs too on all of "our" 5 kids only 2 are his hehehe. He has no clue!

Every Easter i get free baskets from a local church. I work and get paid under the table. It doesn't mess with my benefits!

I go to my required number of interviews, but never get the job. Oh do you have black people working here? Not sure if I can deal with that. Oh is that guy bagging retarded? Isn't that what they call it? Oh I have to do lifting? My back isn't great. Etc.

I get utility help every year. I just have a sob story and let it get to the point I have a notice of shut off and they pay it!

I went to Red Lobster for my birthday my boyfriend payed, I had a lobster it was great!

Often I sell the clothing from the clothing bank to buy nicer ones.

You may not agree with my lifestyle but we are happy and it works!

Oh and we got a free pool pass for our family this summer! I had to write an essay on how not having money affects you and your children and I wrote an awesome one. All summer has been spent at the pool.

AND we got free tickets to the local amusement park because I wrote to them!

The coins in my jar are what I am saving for us to go to disneyworld! I already have enough for plane tickets, and 4 days at a hotel!

No need to get violent love. Jealousy does not become you.

Nope! 100% serious. I have a big flat screen tv and a Kodi box too.

Hold that chin high girl. Or get someone else to hold it up for you. Seems to be your style.

You have someone come & wipe your asses for you too? What are you going to do when all of the help runs out?
