Broke...

I literally have $3.18 in the bank, about $4 in cash and change, and I don’t get paid for 2 more days. Not sure what I’m going to do, because I’m at less than 1/4 tank of gas. Just needed to put this out there somewhere.

I drive 45 miles one way to work daily.

Scrounge for change. Take the change to the bank and turn it in for cash.

I guess you need to budget better next month.

Why didn't you make sure gas money was put back before you spent it all. My dh used to have that type of commute and I paid bills, could almost determine how much was needed for gas, that got put back, then food and what ever we had left was spent on other stuff
