Was there ever a time in your life when you didn't know how you would pay all your bills? Perhaps a time when bills were piling up? How do you handle the situation?

How about now? Having problems paying bills, and keeping up with new ones. I saw this discussion and came here but now I don't feel like elaborating much on the subject. Times are hard hands down. I am on he verge of losing my sanity. I have been blessed so far and I am always hoping for better days...

Don't lose your sanity. Times will always be hard but there is a saying "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" Keep your head up and know that as long as you hold on to God's hand you will always keep afloat.

Hi Joy! Your topic just reminded me that I needed to pay a bill. :-) I have not had problems paying my bills and don't want to be in that situation if possible. I try to be careful with how much I spend. I have done some cost cutting which has helped like cutting my tv service down to basic cable. I used to have a landline phone but cut that off. I am careful with my electricity usage and water usage in my home. I also use online bill paying to schedule payments, which has helped. I have also done some tutoring and used websites like this to help with paying bills as well as money I have saved up over the years.

HI Ken I am like you ..in that I try to cut costs. I am doing all kinds of little sites that I know really work:) Seems we have been on mylot about the same amount of time. but during my time working for my past employer I had very little time to wind down. Now I must pick up the pieces and move on . . You do tutoring? What kind of tutoring do you do ..Do you do this onlne or off? Glad you are able to save money. I am happy also to see you back to mylot. .you are such a good friend. I enjoy your posts. Cutting back is the only way.

I am still wondering up to now how I can pay all my bills. I try to find ways to earn money, however small it is. And I have faith that I can get through month after month.

It happened to me twice. When we purchased our first home and when we moved to our second home five years ago. Bills kept coming but the providence of God never failed us. I was always cautious not to overspend and manage wisely our money and we did it some way or another.
