I’m writing this on behalf of my wife and I. neither of us really like asking for money but the next few months are putting us in some pretty bad straights. we’ve been trying to work on paying off our credit cards and other bills pretty steadily recently which has been made tough because my wife tuition for college has been taking up most of our extra income. however we’ve hit a situation that is going to make the next three months come pretty close to breaking us. her tuition payments for her last semester are going to be about 250-300 dollars more per month than we had been anticipating because of some extra classes she has to take and the fact that the college is only offering a 3 month payment plan instead of 4.
Until now we have been able to make all our payments and not ask for much help from family. Partly because our families aren’t in much position to help either. Her parents are trying to pay for a new house and my mother was fired from her job 2 years ago and had her income drop a lot because of it.
We have managed to try controlling our debt and had a plan for getting everything paid off in the next 3-5 years. This tuition issue however that fell into our laps this week is putting a lot of strain on us not just financially but emotionally as well. The tuition alone will now take up about a quarter of our monthly income even having slashed our grocery budget, our date night budget, and every where else we can try cutting money. We have been doing little things like using Mturk and other sites to get a little extra money but it’s not really enough to make a dent in what we need the next three months.
I know it’s a long shot but any help that anyone is willing to provide would be greatly appreciated. We’re hoping that one day soon we’ll be in a position to be offering the help to those who need a hand up. For anyone who read this thank you. And thank you in advance for anyone who is able and willing to help us out. We promise we won’t forget it and put it to good use getting her tuition paid and pay it forward as soon as we can
