Yes. But not for much longer! I'm doing a work from home biz and expect to make over $500 this month!

 Yes we do.  As soon as we get ahead, something happens. :(   My DH gets paid on the 15th and my brakes just started grinding.  I can't afford to fix them til he gets paid, but that's a week without a car.  I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do.

I say the same thing I have been sick for almost 4 years now with no answrs or end in site. I feel all my medical bills are making us poor.
Quoting Saharra:

We do. It's tough, but we haven't been able to get ahead like we should be able to because of loosing insurance and having diabetes :) It's not cheap! I keep saying if I wasn't diabetic, we would be rich :D

Until February we did. Ever since we got together and married in 2001 we lived check to check. A bunch of stuff happened all around the same time that pushed us over that hump, thankfully. 

I still freak out when I see money in the account. I wonder what I haven't paid, what I haven't bought....what I'm doing wrong. After living one way for 12 years it's hard to get used to having money.

Yes and no.

If my can would not of died 1 year after SO got a new truck.   2 car payments at once hurts
Plus the requirement of full coverage insurance on both until paid off, OUCH!!! 

This month we actually pay off his truck.  and Dec of 2014 my car will be paid off.  I cant wait for that.  that will be about 1200 just in car payments free for other things.

So we are pay check to paycheck, but will be more comfortable soon thank goodness.

Not really, but savings would disappear relatively quickly if our income disappeared.
