What is your family situation?
Hi! We're a family of 5 struggling to keep afloat. Holidays have been tough the last few years because Mamma hasnt been working and Dad hhas taken 2 paycuts over the last 3 years.

There just isnt any money to spend on or save for anything else. :-( ANY help is greatly appreciated.
