Okay, I'm going to be a little harsh here but where is your money going?! I make decent money and have a 2.5 year old daughter. My DP makes a very good salary. We still qualify for medicaid, child care assistance, and our food stamps just stopped a month ago. I have a mortgage, utilities, a car, a cell phone, cable/internet, and all the regular things plus my portion of daycare. Yet, I still come out with a little bit of money to put away for Gemma's college every month. Also DP does not live with me so he doesn't pay any portion of my bills or the mortgage. So unless you're living well beyond your means there's no reason you shouldn't be able to make ends meet on three jobs plus DH's two. Maybe you should evaluate where your living and if it's worth the cost and how much your paying for things like cell phones, cable, internet, car insurance, etc. You may have to sacrifice some things but there's no reason you can't survive. And if you're only making minimum wage at all your jobs then you should qualify for assistance. GL!
