I just spent the past hour writing a blog about budget concerns … and then deleted it. I felt so whiny.
I mean yes, it’s totally at a point where we’re down to paying bills, getting gas, and buying groceries. Nothing else.
I’m just frustrated because I was online today searching for budget advice, and the articles were so depressing.
Saying I should be saving $100 a month. If I had an extra $100/month, I would put it towards Husband’s lawyer so we could pay her off. ( I seriously just did the math, and at the rate we’re going, it will take us SIX YEARS to pay her off. See? Depressing.)
Saying I should try to live on $21/day. What? How does that work?
Saying if I need to save money, just cut down my cable bill and shop Jewel using coupons. Yes, that totally helps me.
It’s like, I need someone who gets it. I need to talk to someone, other than Husband, who gets where we’re at and is like, oh us too. It’s crazy hard. Someone else who doesn’t have TV (or at least no cable), who shops at Aldi’s, who has a $40/month phone plan, and is like I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. I HAVE NO WANTS LEFT TO CUT. Which is the yelling point I’m at currently.
The highlight for today was father in law listened to our case and agreed to return the TV and give us the money, with no hurt feelings (because he honestly did not realize that we don’t need a TV). Yay.
Going to bed.
