I'm so stressed

I've been trying to get another personal loan to consolidate my credit card debt. I already took out one for 5k for bills since I was off work for maternity leave and wasn't going to get a bonus. All that money is almost gone. Plus the added expense of daycare which is 600 a month, I am starting to think of things to sell so I can make it. DH works too but has to pay child support. This being off work really hurt us. If I don't bonus I'm breaking even. I can't stay home because then we wouldn't be able to afford anything.

It's a financial nightmare.

Why are you paying daycare if you aren't working?

I am working. I'm talking about when I was on maternity leave.

I took out a debt consolidation loan, and it was the best thing I could have done. All CC debt will be gone in 1.5 years. I applied through Lending Tree.

I guess having children wasn't such a good idea.  Having children are a debt to the household budget but people like you and others keep on having for what reason I just don't know. 

Hope you figure things out.

You're robbing Peter to pay Paul. One of you needs to get a 2nd job. Also, look into some financial classes. Good luck!
