Have you ever think of some alternative that would make your earning enough for your family?..Like what? If I have only money then I wanted to sell foods I am sure it will help.

If my earnings were not enough to support my family, I would still use what I have learnt to make money for my family. I would teach my students as many as possible in my spare time to make some extra money. I could also do some translation job for some company.

I would get a second job if I had to in order to support my family- Luckily for me- my paycheck supports us- along with my sig. others- We are pretty set- unless either of us lose our jobs- If we were in the situation where we didn’t have enough money- I’d look for a part time job- perhaps delivering papers (something my daughter could help with) I did this as a child and loved it- I got to keep the paper route money- I think I’ll let my daughter do it too when she is old enough

I would recall the poem, that I had learnt in my school time. Pigion said coo What shall I do I have not enough food for a family of two "Foolish bird..." said the hen " my family are ten and we are living like gentlemen" This stanzas has alot of lesson for hard time of my life. I will pray the God " O my Lord, O my God, You are my Creature. You arranged and provided me every thing I needed. I am In hardship. I have no enough money to run my mare" I belive that His mighty God will arrange it all. I also belive that " God helps those, how helps themself"

I would cut some of my expense such as the cable, probably get prepaid phone service. I would prepare all meals at home. I would sell some of jewelry and clothes.

i would do the inevitable...adjust my lifestyle and my family member's so that earnings balance spending...if it is so extreme(the imbalance),i would consider going to some charity groups to help me out....banks and moneylenders wud be my last resort...

When it seems that your earning is not enough to feed your family.. it is more likely to think of the so-called "cost-cutting". In that sense, you might have just unnoticed your unnecessary expenses and so its a great time to cut it down. Make and set priorities to have spend with. Secondly, think of a nice way of getting an earning aside from your main source. Selling products at ebay for example. There are lots of ways to go with additional income... it is just depending on your ability to handle and grab it.

My salary also can not afford my family even if it alreday add with my husband salary my another income is thru selling clothes or accessories but still not enough because I only get small percentage from the things that I sold & from designing clothes for friends. right now I'll try to get additional income from internet I know It won't get me higher earning but I hope when I add everything in the end I can pay all my family expenses.

I think selling things and foods can help in able to earn. Maybe it will not be enough but at least it can help to obtain some of the needs in the family.
