Like a lot of you, I have a baby and am presently unemployed while I care for him full-time. DH isn't working but not for want of trying so we are on welfare.
I've just recently moved into a new rental and I'm looking around at the sparseness, the fact that we don't have much furniture, watch our money frugally, save for bills such as rego, electricity etc and there just doesn't ever seem to be enough.
And I'm thinking will there ever be enough? It's like we're in a cycle of some sort - each pay day you spend on fuel, food, baby stuff and you have a little bit left that you put away and hope you don't need for the rest of the fortnight. DH and I are banging our heads together trying to figure a way to get out of this but we're clueless.
How did you get ahead? Is there some sort of plan I need to follow? It's just getting me down today...
