Hi everyone!!! May I join you here?
It's been awhile since I've been on MDC. I shut my internet off in May to save money, and we've since lost our house and have moved into a rental house. I just got internet back last week. (And it's slooooooow! I hate dialup!)
Anyway, I've been freaking out lately because even though our rent is now 1/4 what our house payment was, we STILL can't afford anything! We have an entire week until DH's next paycheck, and there is no money in the account. It will be a week of pantry eating. We have no meat at all, which makes it really hard because my DH doesn't consider a meal a meal unless there is meat. Thankfully I have lots of the basics, and a few dollars to buy a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, and some eggs. I'm HOPING that will tide us over until payday so we can make an Aldi's run.
Today I tried to find a buyer for our really nice dining room table and chairs. No luck. It is the only thing we own worth selling and I can't find anyone who will buy it! I have had no luck on Craigslist or with our two local used furniture places.
To the PP who's store didn't want to allow her to make a charge on her debit for under $5...they aren't allowed to do that. If you contacted your debit card company and told them that, the store could lose their agreement and their card readers. Soooooo not allowed.
