I am a father of 3 with a lovely wife who stays at home to take care of the children. We’ve been in a bit of a financial shortage for about a year now and are just about at the breaking point. I work full time to get the bills paid and food on the table, and with my wife taking care of the kids we are able to save about $1000 a month we would be paying for childcare. Lately she has been picking up odd jobs to earn a little extra cash to help out.
I still have another week before I’m paid again and I have more bills to pay, and no money to pay them. I wrote a check for the water bill last week, with plenty of money to cover it at the time, but life happens and now the money isn’t there. I’ve got about $60 in my bank account, and like I said before, still more bills to be paid. The check for the water bill hasn’t hit the bank yet, but I know that when it does it will surely bounce, and my water will be cut off.
I have 2 car payments that I still need to make, one is already almost a month late, the other is just a few days late. I feel like my whole world is crashing down on me and I have no way to stop it. I’m doing everything I can to keep my family afloat and it still doesn’t seem to be enough.
Just so you know, we don’t live crazy extravagant lives. We don’t live in a big fancy house or spend money on useless things, we stick to the necessities and that’s it. I feel bad for the kids because I wish I could offer them more, they deserve more than what I can give them. I would go to family for help, but most of them are in about the same situation we are. Last month we gave my father in law $500 for a similar problem. Looking back that may not have been the best financial decision, we wouldn’t be in this spot now had we not done that, but we help people out when we can, and we sure appreciate it when other people do the same.
Anything that you can offer is greatly appreciated, be it $10, 20, 100, 200… every little bit helps. Whatever we get goes straight towards bills and anything extra will go straight back to this site, to help someone else out in need. Thanks for hearing me out, and thanks for your help.
