I appreciate everything my husband does he works his butt off and provides well for me and the four kids. I am use to him getting paid every two weeks. A financial hardship happened and now we get an allotment on the first two grand less than we are use to having. It hit us hard but we thought we were covered the last time we were paid we bought more than usual. This is harder than I thought and things are running out right and left, I see my self going to the store more than before and we have way less money now. Any tips can help
The first check stub with the allotment on it on am going to wic, we just barley lost are elgibilty.
I have two boys still in pull ups so we have that expense.
I buy cheap staples from walmart beans, rice, canned tomes, tom sauce and I make the majority of all our food from scratch.
We do not purchase soda, I make sweet tea daily
We have access to the commissary
We do not have access to a sams or costco nearest one is over an hour away.
I called all my creditors and asked if there was anything I could do to shave money off my bills.
I cancelled cable we use netflix for 8.99 a month. A must with children.
We have two trucks one is paid for one is not. My husband and I decided to go to a one car family to save gas.
I would still have daycare expenses if I were to work so currently I am going to college on line until all my children are school age. I plan on having my masters in 20 months.
My gibill money helps a bit but its not stable.
Can you think of anything else?
