    Would you mind giving a few details about your financial situation? Do you have cable TV or an expensive cell phone plan? How many times a week do you eat out? Do you regularly purchase alcohol or cigarettes? How much credit card debt do you have? What do you have around the house you can sell on Craigslist?

    Most money problems can be drastically reduced by cutting out wasteful spending and changing your mindset about what you think you "need" to live.

    Did I miss the mark or does this describe your situation?

      I did cut on my expences but only have rent, utility and transportation expences and only WOR few hr. This is the reason that I am looking for help.

      Are you saying that ALL your expenses are necessary to live? What is the reason you only work a few hours? Is this a part-time job and is this the only income source you have?

      I see. Sounds a little on the difficult side. Another idea would be to shop at discount grocery stores. That will help you save a lot on food. Also, how many times per week do you eat out?

      I don't eat out I cook for my kids and I do buy grocery in discount stores and used coupons. Trust me I try everything all is left is to ask for help

      Well, as peeples suggested in your other question, it seems as though your only option is to inquire at charities or ask family for this sort of thing. I'm sure your children will understand if they don't get everything they'd like.
