So last month we paid off our cc -- we had transferred the balance to a 0% interest for 1 year, and last month was our 1 year -- however due to a SLIGHT miscalculation on my part, we had to make a HUGE payment in order to pay it off without interest. If we'd gone another month, we would have had back interest from 12 months... anyway. So because of that, last month was SUPER tight and dh pushed all of our online bills to Sept 1, when he got paid. I was also holding off on buying any birth supplies until then, and now we're practically at 0 again, on Sept 2! I bought my birth kit plus some tinctures ($80 plus shipping), a tub liner ($30), and Domperidone ($100 plus shipping, will probably last 3-4 months.) Gah. I really hate money.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I'm with you there. We are in major debt right now and trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I don't have my birth pool ordered yet and we won't have the money till after the baby is due. I'm hoping to make some $ off TP and Ebay this week!

damn. You just reminded me that I'm late on bills. Crap. I still haven't ordered my birth kit because pesky things like gas and food keep getting priority.

I want to play the lotto too... unfortunately that costs money we dont have!!! ARGH! lmao. if only, if only.<br>
We've got about 5 k to pay off that we *wanted* paid off before the baby got here... yeah its not going to happen.<br>
Not to mention I will be probably not going back to work (only two days away anyway, so I may... we're unsure, I only bring in 300 about a month, but that is 300/month closer to paying it off...)<br>
And hubby will be taking about a month off, If he wants to go back early and I am up to it he can though.<br>

I think all spending needs to be cancelled at our place.<br><br>
Giftmas will be cancelled this year more than likely........<br>
Last year we told most people that we weren't doing giftmas/trading gifts anymore....ah well.<br><br>
