So, my bf got termed yesterday for reasons that while not illegal, are pretty damn unethical. Now, the question is how do we keep our heads above water? I make almost enough to pay for household stuff, but not quite. Plus my son needs school clothes, and my car is falling apart. I'm getting an inheritance later this month, but need to pay my lawyer(long story) and get a new to me car. Thus, that money really doesn't count. He's still go the part time "I need to get out of debt" job, but its not enough to cover everything either. So I cut off the (basic) cable? Switch to budget billing on power? Cross my fingers? Any ideas on cheapola, but good eats? I was really poor in college, compared to sorta poor now. But, I never had another adult to support. Any advice would help lots.
