- Wedding: December 2010
Ive been kinda down the past couple months because we havent had ANY extra money at all. My husband is military and Im a stay at home wife (but starting school in january for nursing).
Our monthly bills come to.. 1500 for rent (1200-1500 is average rent cost where we live it sucks!) and about 900 for all the bills (car loan/insurance/heat/internet/etc).
We have 500 every month in savings (we really really try not to spend this unless its an emergency) which leaves about 700 left over to buy groceries and entertainment (we probably spend anywhere from 100-300 on groceries a month..ive been trying to do better by making dinners every night in cheaply ways haha).
Does this sound ok? We have no money right now because we just spent so much on plane tickets to go home for the holidays and weve spent everything else on the wedding. WE have like 300 dollars right now to our name until our next check and im freaking out! Our next check is buying wedding reception food/cake and my trailoring for my dress and im afraid we still wont have any extra money again. UGH
Have you had problems like this??? How did you work on it? I want to get a job to help out but im sooo bad at doing school and a job that I dont know if itd be worth it : (
Im such a worry wart I cant sleep welll lately because im stressed out about it!! ACK!!!
