Have you checked out the Thrifty forum area, here on DS yet? Lots of resources, ideas, and support

One income here and I understand. All I can say is budget. Though like me my budget when out the window when I had to pay $104 to put my dog down...kinda knew just didn't know when, and my cable/internet went up $20 with no notice!

Definitely check out the thrifty forum. I feel the same way sometimes, and we have 2 incomes. Most of it goes towards gas and I have a DH who spends carelessly. Sticking to a budget really helps, mama.

Re: Working ft still not enough $

ugh..yes... I budget budget budget, but something always comes up. found out today, we are going business casual on MONDAY, (as in like less than a week), so after spending a ton of money getting my son winter/cold weather stuff, I'm going to have to somehow get dress pants for me, and my son's father. There really isn't ANY money left for that. Oh, and at the beginning of the month, I had to replace everything in our fridge because we spent 4 days w/out power (hurricane Irene). It was about $400 to do that. We have renters, but they only do claims for $500 and above. My car needs some work done, and Christmas is coming up. sigh... Its always something isn't it.

It's always something. I always think next month will be better & then something else comes up. Repeat. Ugh. All I can do is keep my head down & trying.

Know the feeling Mama! In the same boat. $400 Car troubles and a $160 speeding ticket for us last month...really really frustrating. Dave Ramsey has some good info on budgeting and savings that might help

Wow, I was so "happy" to see your post and know that I wasn't the only person dealing with that kind of stress. I can completely relate...
