    Can'T Even Buy Food

    Waiting on a paycheck from my boyfriends new job, still have another week left. 15 bucks to our name and running out of food. :( I have a 2 year old and I'm afraid I won't be able to feed him properly. I just want to crawl in a hole and die.

    I Will Be Retired Before I Reach Age 30

    I just want to share my story of how I have set myself up on the path to never having to work a job again and be financially independent and most importantly free. :) I hate having a job, but not because I am lazy. I am a hard worker. What I hate is the idea of having to go to...

    Just 2 More Years...

    Everything will be better in 2 more years(circa 2006). This is the theme of my life. However, 2 years turned into 6. My husband works hard but pays an exorbitant amount of child support. If the child support went to the children I wouldn't complain. The kids never have anything...

    Bah it sucks. I sometimes wish

    that I didn't miss out on some of these key life experiences because of financial status. I wish I could go to college, take classes without worrying about how much they are. I envy those who have that privilege.

    So i applied for pursuing masters from

    Australia. I always wanted to go abroad and learn new and better things which I may not able to experience in my own. I applied for a loan in several banks. They evaluated me and my family's current financial status and rejected the loan. I even left my job to pursue as the bank...

    since I have been on here. Some things have changed, some haven't. I am still in the same relationship...I haven't gotten brave enough to get out of it yet, even though I need to. I have however gotten a new job, a better one. Less stress at least. Unfortunately, one thing...

    I Am Tired Of Having No Money

    I don't want to say I am poor...that feels wrong. I have a family and they are well, so I know many would think me lucky. I know I should "count my blessings".  I know there are some worse off than me, I'm often told to think about them. That's supposed to make me feel better. I...

    I Did 'all The Right Things' or so I thought. . .

    My father died when I was young, so I knew before I started high school I'd have to pay for most if not all of my college. So I worked hard, got scholarships, and had my first year of college paid. Great right? Then came second year, well I was prepared. I had been working hard...

    My last two roommates f'd me over by not paying

    their part of the bills. The whole time, I was unable to pay towards my credit card balance, which kept getting bigger because I really couldn't afford to pay 100% of the household expenses! Additionally, one of my neighbors desperately needed to borrow money...she still hasn't...
