FML ... NEED ADVICE -- UPDATE ... SO MUCH FOR IT GETTING BETTER!!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

**I posted this in the moms confessions and then found this group.. I will hopefully get more advice in here*


Am I the only one who feels like they will never get ahead in life.. I feel like im failing my boys and my husband. It never fails how much we both work we can never get caught up on bills, no matter how much I clean our apartment its right back to being a mess. I want to give up at times but I have to be positive about everything for our kids I have a 4 year old and a 2 month old.. im 23 and I really feel like my husband and I are stuck in a never ending battle with money and bills!!! does anyone have any advice for me lol or help organizing finances I suck with!!


***Update***

SOOO my husband and I need to come up with $150 before Friday .. yeah 2 days away or we lose our place because we would have to go to court. I have NO family to help I have already asked them they dont have the money. My husband is supposed to be asking his parents. We thought we had paid everthing to avoid court but nope they called last night stating if they didnt have the $150 we still have to show up to court Friday .. Im losing my mind Im working my ass off. My husband is working his ass off and we just keep gettin shit on.. no pun intended and its not gettin better its worse. How am I going to explain to my 4 year old that we have to find a new place to live. we cant stay with my family. my parents have a 4 bed room house and every room is takin and my sister is sleepin on their couch! FML i seriously give up i wana take my family and run and completely start over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've been in the same position.  The only way we got out was that a former landlord gave us a great deal on rent b/c we're awesome tenants (at least compared to his other tenants).  Anyway, IDK what to tell you.  I'm sorry.

As for the finances: it's a simple matter of math.  I put down our monthly income, then start subtracting, then stop when we get down around $100 or so, b/c SOMETHING ALWAYS happens.  Then it's there when we need it.  As long as there's food, roof, etc, other amenities sometimes have to go.

If you can get a short term loan.. Like from the cash store or ace checks express take out 200 so you are able to eat as well as pay your bill..** hugs momma** I felt like that and I still do to some extant.... I had to get P A to help me...only thing is I'm disabled and was unable to make it on my own.. As my XH 1 as well as 2 aren't in my children's life... So yes it's hard but you can make it.

Glad it worked out for you :) I forgot to tell you that if you use ace checks express if you can pay back the money in 72 hours you don't have to pay fees..
You will need to bring with you. Proof of income,check,drivers license and a bank statement :)
