My sister treats me like garbage.

I'm have a really hard time with money right now. My husband had to quit his job, because he wasn't making any money. I was a stay at home mom, but I'm looking very hard for a new job. My sister offered me some money to help me get on my feet. I did not ask her for the money. I have borrowed money from her before and paid her back every time. Anyway, on the phone tonight she tells me what a piece of garbage I am, because my husband can't keep a job. She keeps telling me to stop spending money. Believe me, I'm buying only the basic needs stuff when my husband was working. Well, I went out and bought my son 1 toy that was on sale for $27.00 dollars and she had the nerve to through this in my face. I have one pair of pants that I can wear that I bought at the thrift store. I have to wear my husband's tee shirts (also thrift store specials). Well, we have an extra computer that we are planning on selling( a nice gaming computer) and she got mad at me, because we are planning on taking out the hard drive when we sell it. Hopefully, my husband and I will come up with the money without my sister's help. Sorry about the post maybe I just need to vent. Thanks for listening.

Vent anytime. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time right now. It's possible your sister is just worried about you and it didn't come out the way she meant it. I don't know. Family is hard to deal with sometimes. I hope and pray your luck with turn around. There are some good tips on here for saving money but it sounds like you may be doing all you can already. There are also some sites that offer coupons and freebies.

Sometimes even our family members can be cruel, I wonder why she's being so harsh. Do you think maybe she is just trying to help but her words are coming across in the wrong way? Anyways, I"m sorry to hear of your situation and I hope things look up for you.
