My Brother and SIL came over, they make everyone think they are poor. Now they have more money than my parents a year (they make $10,000 - $30,000 more than my parents a year). They make her parents believe thye have no money, which they may not but they irresponsible spend it. They just came back from town and spent $300 on video games, and accessories for them. My SIL goes to my Mom I need dish soap, or toilet paper, and saying where my stash is so she can take it. I don't trust anyone in my family as far as I can throw them. After last time, I flipped out at my Mother as she just hands it out, without asking. Now if I knew they needed it and appreciated it then I would. But not once have they thanked me, not once have they even offered me anything, they expected me to bend over for them. My Mother hasnt been touching anything of mine, she will say even before she threw out my bread crust off a plate she asked. I think she finally got it through her head, for how long I dont know. I am sitting here, and I had gotten shirts from the shelter to raise money, some would fit there dog, so they are $2 each (so $6 they owed me). They wont pay me, and stoled the shirts from my room, so I told my parents I will then take it off my rent seeing as I wont see the money, and they are more likely pay them then me. I hear my Mom go well you have to ask her, I am not touching anything. I hear them going through my boxes, so I walk down to get a drink, I just can;t believe them at all.

Sounds like something my sister would do... she gets 3000 child support a month, and comes to my home goes into my bathroom and almost always puts perfume or something in her purse. She doesnt need to steal, its a game for her.

Sounds like your brother and his wife are greedy people. They should have someone sit down with them and sort out their finances and know what to pay first and when it needs to be paid and if there's any money left over they can spend it on whatever they want. I hate people like that, that try to get money off others and never pay them back. What I do with my paychecks is I pay my bills first, and then I been buying Christmas gifts after I pay my bills and then what's left over I save for gas money and any groceries I may need if any. I learned about finances thru my sister and I been making out better than I used too, because I used to run myself dry and not have money for bills, but now that I'm older I'm alot smarter and knows what has to be paid and the date it needs to be paid by. I wouldn't give anything to your brother or his wife anymore, and that's rude to go to someones house and search thru their things and take stuff, I don't care if it's family or not, just plain rude. How would they feel if you went to their place and did the same for them? Sounds like they will never get anywhere in life doing this.

Time to put a lock on your bedroom door. Or time to move out. Sometimes family members take advantage of other family members. It's not fair. But those family members who are being taken advantage of - need to protect themselves and their own money. There is not much you can do between your brother and SIL and your mother but there is something you can do about yourself.

Hmmm your family is very different, you all living under the same roof but so different . (no offence meant)I mean at least love and affection for another is must and also trust. Give and take is there is every relation but we should also have respect on one another.

Can't you somehow lock up your stuff? Or, at least put it all in big plastic containers and tape it all up so no one can get to it? This is too unfair and wrong all the way around. At least your Mom said they have to ask her, which is good, right?
