I don't know how we can make it better. I know financially you are really struggling.
Can you find out about reducing the phone/net bill, you talked about in your other thread.
Also if you are really struggling, can you perhaps go and ask for some financial assistance from the salvo's or vinnies. I know they do food packages.
IT is not something to be ashamed of, either. Sometimes we all need a helping hand.
MY hubby and I found ourselves living on $300 a fortnight when our 2nd child was born. After paying for our rent at the time. IT was soul destroying for both of us.
AND looking back, I have no idea how we managed.
