Do you run out of money?

It comes rarely, but there are really times when I run out of money. So I need my parents to rescue me during those days...How about you?

I might come close, but no I never do. I started, after my last divorce, of saving all my change. Whenever I pay for something, at the end of the day I would put all my change in to a jar. By the end of the month, it adds up. And for most people, they run low on funds right before their next payday. If you save up your change then by the time it gets to that point you have a little extra money to get through to payday.

Before, I was always run out of money and it was really really hard!!! Now, gosh never experienced that anymore! hahaha. My husband always double check if I have still money with me. Even when I was in the Philippines, he was more worried than myself. He would ask me go run in the bank to get cash using my card. Now that we are together he still do the same. Although I have my both credit and debit card, I still carry cash in my wallet. I am used to it. So, if my cash goes down to 50 he will withdraw for me. That's funny I think. Even I have my both cards, I still want cash with me. I am used to it. I don't like my wallet without any cash. For me, that's a bad luck..hehe

yes i do run out of money, far more often then i would like to. the main time we completely run out of money is when hubby is laid off work. The income from unemployment isnt enough for our bills, so we pay the main ones and then usually need help to pay the rest til he gets back to work. Right now is one of those times...and the money i make online is far from enough to bail us out, but every penny still is helpful.

Usually find my money tends to dry up in the last week of the month just before payday. It's a horrible feeling not being able to afford anything in that week. Normally try and drive more efficiently to save fuel and try and think of clubs and places I can go where there's free things to do. It's such a relief when payday comes round but then I start the cycle all over again.

All those early years of getting educated afforded me the opportunity to make a good living and i am a lucky dude in that i can sort of buy anything i want without concern where i can pay for it .Now my older son and daughter have your problem and i hope i am doing the right thing but i do rescue them when they get in over their heads Arenot we lucky to have parents that are there when we need them.When i was younger i was disciplined and did not need to call on the help of my parents to bail me out Good Luck Have a Great day and be careful when you buy that it is feasible
