DH and I have been married 4 years, together 12 and have lived on our own for 5 years now. We both work, me full time and he as many hours as his job will give him, usually 25-40 (they don't have "full time" so his hours vary each week).
Does anyone else ever feel that there is never enough money? We live and spend carefully but it still feels like there is never enough money! We don't have any debt except for our mobile home payment which is great but we really want to buy a house and get out of this trailer park. We don't have or want children but it seems as soon as our savings starts growing something happens and we have no money again!
We had a little over 5k in our account but then came the bills for the month and 2k for car repairs! So as soon as we start building money something takes it away! Plus, both of our cars have 60k miles on them. So right around the same time we will both need new cars. Mine was bought 8 years ago new but is now a salvage car because someone rear ended me. I am not sure how much longer it will last, as it seems lately everything is going wrong with it.
I know this is just life and it is the same for everyone but lately it is getting me down a little. We both work hard and live frugally but it still doesn't seem to be enough!
I am thankful for what we have and I don't want anything extravagant but it seems like owning our own home will never happen! So anyone else feel the same way?
