Hi everyone Do you have money problems or do you have a life without money problems? Right now I am having money problems even though I have a job. I live with my family and we are 4 people living in the same house but only two people have a job and we have many bills to pay About me the money we have is all used to pay bills and food but we cant buy things for ourselves for example if I need a pair of shoes or clothes I cant buy it.If I want to go out with friends I cant do that because I dont have money for it. My life is complicated right now and I just wish it can be better soon What about you? Are you also having money problems? If you have what are you doing to try to make things better? Please share

I have got similar money problems paying high bills of any kind as I am nursing old idle but so cute auntie, sparing is my daily task: jam from fruit in garden, electricity spared using solar lamps and petrol lamps when authorised by your country, also less fuel (central heating) using small heating device but very effective (toseine fuel). Renting an unuseful bedroom and bath at home. I might also try to sell little things on occasional little markets in my village, and if I have time but dont know, produce and buy veggies and later honey. Knitting and crochet nice clothes and sewing with a basic sewing machine (yet a beginner). Efficient sparing I experience with water electricity heating and if possible reducing insurance rates, also my way to cook myself buying 10 pound bag of rice, of flour, dark choco to be added in some desserts etc rapeseed oil, milk bottles uht etc I try to find activities job from home but difficult also to get any job when nursing elder loved ones. For the future I think night watch job or something like that. Discount shops for food. All these are paying but life is everywhere expensive, bills and taxes we pay (insurances are great and we know there is no real thing in front as I have the feeling to pay for the blowing wind...) are overpassing my sparing intention. But I cope with my little cute family.

Money problems arise from time to time most especially if we have some obligations to pay. I find ways by doing some sort of side income. Money is the most essential part of this life. I guess all people needs money. Politicians still corrupts eventhough they are already rich. I guess its a matter of working hard and thinking all the positivities in life. I hope you can find a decent job soon or perhaps a side income to sustain your needs with the family.

Most people have trouble with money. When we were young we lived from one paycheck to the next, as we got older we started saving and buying less, My advice: get a degree at a college, take the time to get that degree no matter how long that takes (at night worked for us). You will find better jobs and more money in your life.

I think it is hard to save money because water, gas, electricity, rents, food are very expensive unless you have a big salary you can live confortable otherwise it is complicated

@sweetloveforeve I can actually see myself; big salary, big expenses and makes you buy things you don't need kind of expenses. sometimes I wonder why i don't win the lottery.

As doing the budget on my family, there is one thing I found out. That high earnings would not mean you could have some excess. Things will always depend on expenses, on or where are your money is going. Just like when my wife resigned in his job, I thought we can't make it. But having this situation and upon seeing things, this make me realize, it's all about anticipating more the outs, not the ins. And planning ahead really helps. Unless some emergency expenses occurs.

Yes we should always leave some money aside if we have the chance to. We never know what can happen and we should have some in case some emergency comes or a family member loses his job.

My husband and I are retired, so we do not have money problems. We did not have money for extras when we were younger, though.
