I need a way to make money....

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

It's sad that I work my tail off 40 hours a week and I feel like I have nothing to show for it. For the company I work for, I actually make pretty decent money. I know there would be some nurses here that would probably get mad if they knew I made almost as much as they do! The truth is though that it's still not enough. I get paid on friday and after all the bills are paid, I will have about $19 left. Someone please tell me how those coupon chicks do it because unless I learn the "extreme couponing" way, I wont be able to buy many groceries with 19 buckaroos. Then you have gas. If I didn't have to take my daughter to school, I could walk to work which I really need to do anyways seeing as my front passenger tire is so bald, I can see the cords under the tread. I'm really waiting for this tire to blow but can I buy a new tire? NO. They cost way more then $19! Try the average 133/tire for my car! GRRRR!!!!

To top all that off, it's my step-son's Birthday and we have no presents for him. My hubby will get his present and send it to him friday but how crappy do we feel right about now. We can't go to NC for his party because again, no tires for the car and the front end sounds like it's gonna fall off, no gas, no money for hotel, no money for food. Sorry kiddo! Then guess what? 2 weeks after Zack's BD is my daughter, Kinzi's BD. Two weeks after that, my step-daughter's BD. And 1 month after that, my other daughter's BD. Looks like these kids are gonna have crappy birthday's all because I don't make enough money to even buy them a cake let alone presents.

Well that is my crappy parent rant today. Maybe I will have an even crappyier couple of days to top this later! Happy Losing everyone. Still love you all!

    Have you considered being a ChaCha Guide? I used to be one when my daughter was born. You do it from home, any time of day, just whenever you feel like logging in. You could do it from any where you have a computer. Check out If they aren't hiring, let me know. I might have a solution. You won't get rich, but I used to do it just for a few hours in the morning between when my hubby left for work and my daughter woke up. It was enough to buy things I might not have been able to afford. PM me if you need more info.

    I feel your pain! I am in the same boat with really not having anything left over after bills are paid. I wish I had a solution! Love you! :)

    This is true but this is the first time we didn't get to go to NC because of the car needing so much and this is the first time we haven't found the money from somewhere to buy presents. It makes me so sad. Plus if my tire blows out, I will have to walk to work and my husband will have to take my daughter to school in the mornings. It always works out but it's never gotten this far since my husband and I have been together and man is it stressful.
