Realizing What We Can'T Afford


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Recently my family has had to face the music and realize that no matter how much we love the area we live in, with the rising cost of gas, and cost of living; we realize that we can no longer afford to live in an expensive house more than an hour away from town and jobs. We've come to the realization that in order to pay off past due debts and have a little left over to save each month, it's time to move into a cheaper place that's closer to work.

When your expenses exceed your income, your behind in all your bills, your facing possibly getting evicted from your home because you can't pay rent on time because your always flat broke, it's time for a reality check. A cheaper house, closer to work will cut costs big time!

    My family is also having to "face the music" due to cutbacks at my husband's job. I'm having a hard time motivating myself to get a job in addition to controlling my stress induced binging. It's getting bad. How are you all doing now? Did moving closer help? We live in the most expensive county in our state because of the schools, but my husband drives 45 minutes to work everyday.

Hope you and your family are doing better....
