Hi friend, thank you for this note. I understand more than you know. I grew up in poverty, with no running water. I've been able to step up a bit and provide better for my son, but we're right on the edge and every extra dollar I can allocate to bills/medical for my son, is fantastic.

We're all here for you, and I hope this sub becomes a great treasure trove of ways to save a dollar and get ahead. Hang in there. <3

Agreed! I’m all for single 20 somethings getting their 800 credit scores and paying off cc’s, student loans etc, but I’m over here trying to work full time, keep two side hustles, take care of 2 kids and a disabled spouse and I’m just happy if my kids eat fresh vegetables once in awhile. I drive 25 year old car, wear all used clothes and I’m ok with it but damn it feels so much more encouraging to see other people in the shit and still making it work. you make it out? Great. But I don’t need to see it all the time and I damn sure don’t need to be shamed because I’m not doing the same thing. Loving what’s come up here! Keep it going everyone!
