    I finally got my taxes ammended and have to drop it off at the post office.

    i'm $150 short on bills and have 4 days to come up with it by working. Should be doable unless my kids have some kind of crisis.

    I get a paycheck of $180 2 days after the bills are due so I should be ahead once I get them paid on time.

    I do laundry at a friends house. I buy laundry detergent and softner for both of us to use. SO far i've spent $20 on detergent and it lasted 6 ...

    As far as I knew my food benefits was canceled the end of last month. I've been buying groceries but it's not stretching. I've been so hungry this month making sure my kids eat. I lost 7 pounds this month and my kids complained a little about not enough to eat.

    I turn in my food application today and the caseworker said I just needed to change my address and I was good. I had $460 in food benefits sitting on my card all month!

    I've been in my place 2 weeks and haven't changed my addy on my license or got a PO box yet (PO Box costs $12 for 6 months)

    I have to fill out a DHS application again for medicaid, the medicaid my kids had before doesn't cover doctors were we live now, and for food benefits. he way it works in my new town is you bring in your application to the office and sit and wait until someone sees you, you get approved or not with 10 days. ( I have to bring my 3 year old with me, ugh)
