    Some weeks it seems like I'll never have enough household money to put in the envelopes for needs. Last night I poured over the sales circulars for the week and nada, nothing is in my budget. :( That means less money in the envelopes yet another week unless I find some great deals at the thrift...
  12. Financial hardship
    What do you do when you have some family that always wants you to travel there and lives a few hours away and you cant afford the gas money to go, not that they are kind to you when you do go anyways. We dont want to share our financial situation with them as we aren't close and all they would...

    Yes, I understand that my relationship with my bf was rocky. But it was a 5 year relationship. I am not just going to "get over it and move on". I officially finally ended it on Sunday, today is Thursday of the same week. Why can't my friends and co-workers understand that I need time to...

    I got my water bill and it was $502. Can we say Houston we have a problem? My bill usually runs $ 60 a moth. The highest it has ever been was $ 200 and that was filling up a swimming pool. They told me we had a leak so we checked leaks no one can find any. Every time they the have to ask us...

    I had two coupons for .75 off ban deodorant last week combined with the sales I could have bought them each for .24. I went up to the counter with three tubes (they were on sale for .99, limit three ) and the cashier told me they were the wrong size. I then went back to that aisle and picked up...

    I've been having a really tough time at work lately... and just don't know what to do anymore. I've worked there for about 1.5 years, and despite working hard I still always seem to be told I'm doing things wrong. These aren't big things.. probably the most complained about problem is that I...
