My husband and I have struggled financially for our whole marriage. We don’t make much money but we were able to pay off all our credit card debt. The only debt we have left is our student loans. Last week we got great news my hubby got a promotion. He is now a supervisor, which means 37 hours of OT every 2 weeks. We saw the light at the end of the tunnel. We could have the student loan paid off by July and start saving money and have our FFEF and a car fund and we would be ok financially. Then he had a meeting yesterday and the company says all OT is cut. With our health insurance that will only be 830 every two weeks! He has a second job and I work but I don’t know how we are going to do this. I can’t cut anymore everything is to the bare minimum as it is. The only thing we could cut is our food budget. Our food budget isn’t that high to begin with about 250 a month but I have horrible food intolerances and I can’t eat a lot of stuff. I need a lot of organic and specialty foods so to trim is going to be next to impossible. I looked into food stamps but we make $50 too much. I don’t know if we should keep paying the student loans or sock away any extra money we can for the time being. The owner said he has no problems shutting down the company if it isn’t making him money. I feel like I have been punched in the gut. We had such high hopes. We saw ourselves getting somewhere. Being debt free, having savings, starting our retirement, and moving into a better neighborhood. Things like this make me just want to give up and say screw it! I know it could be worse I know he could be without a job but I feel so hopeless right now. All our plans are on hold right now until we figure something out. Hubby’s car is about to die so we are hoping it holds off because I looked at cars and the one’s we could get with the money we have and it will be worse then what he has now. I know nobody is going to be able to give me advise because I can’t trim my budget anymore but I just needed to vent. I don’t want to vent to hubby because he feels like this is his fault when it isn’t. His company is notorious for making a rule and 3 days later changing it so I really hope this is the case. Thank you for listening to me!
