Hi all ~
I think I may have posted here once before, but then life got in the way. LOL
So here I am looking for ways to cut the budget. I have one child at home full time and the other is 1200 miles away living full time with father and I have him approximately 25% of the year.
I used to work a significant amount of overtime in order to make the ends meet, then I was promoted in title only which resulted in me becoming exempt. No more OT. To top it all off, last week the corporate council announced across the board pay cuts as a responsible move in order to keep people working. I am all for keeping a job, but losing the opportunity for OT and now a pay cut!!! What is a single mom to do.
Currently, my present husband and I have decided it is best that we no longer live together - we have been separated for almost a year now. We are discussing ways that will appease both of us for him to come home, but we have always been segmented in every way and I am anticipating that will always be the case. His is his and mine is mine. Makes for more of a room mate situation than a marriage.
Anyway...I am looking for creative ways to cut down on the budget because I have already cut all the corners I can think of with the utilities and "extras."
