    Default HELP!!

    I am so worried. We are in a financial pickle, and will not see a

    paycheck for 2 months. I don't know how we will pay any bills, and am

    stressed about that!! We have been living off of savings for the past

    6 months, and it has run out. OUr family business is going south, and

    cannot help us either. I did get us on WIC (I have a 4 year old), and

    today I looked online to see if we would qualify for Food Stamps. I

    think we might. I am considering the local food bank, but food does

    not pay the bills. HELP

    When things get tight we pawn something to get a little extra cash. I try not to let my pawn bill be more than what I can get out in a couple months. If you will be later most pawn shops will work with you and let you pay the interest and renew the pawn ticket. Short of that, have a yard sale or sell things you don't really need or use much. My husband sold power tools once he did not need and that really helped. You could try getting odd jobs like mowing and raking yards, picking up cans to recycle, even babysit or dog sit. Being creative is the thing. Talk to your creditors, most the time they will work with you. Try to conserve energy as much as possible to reduce future bills. Example, turn off lights you are not using, use less hot water or turn the hot water heater down, cut out cable, make things from scratch and consolate trips to town. I found driving
    only 5-10 mph slower saves a boat load of gas. Do you live in town or in the country? If in the city, use public transportation, walk or ride a bike instead of driving. The best time to shop is late at night, less traffic, cooler, less people shopping and usually you get in and out faster as a result.

    Forget about looking online to see if you qualify for food stamps. Goin person to the agency that provides them. While you are there, ask about any other programs that you might qualify for.

    That depends on what state you live in Diane because here in Florida for example you can only apply online. The state did away with face to face interviews. The centers where you can file your food stamps in Florida are manned by a couple people who help you do it online at the computers or fax stuff in. I hear more states are doing this so it is important to know what state the woman who is asking lives in.

    Wow, I just assumed that everywhere did it the way that they do in SC.
    If you live in a state where you can apply for social services in person, then that is most likely the best way to tap into all that is available.
    If you are forced to do it online ( no human contact)perhaps there is government agency that can at least give some info on all that is out there. I am thinking perhaps the office of your local elected representative.

    Hope it works out,
    Diane

    11.0pt;color:#1F497D;">Diane,
    11.0pt;color:#1F497D;">SC is backward! And I live here!!! Most states don’t
    do the in person interview. When I went in (I panicked after my dh lost his
    job, and we were left with my $6 hr 20 hr /week paycheck to support a family of
    4, and then I found out I was pg… It was a hard month) it took me 3 hours
    of sitting there, and 10 minutes in her office. The worker is super nice, but
    the front of the house staff is just plain mean. After that initial interview,
    I’d always call her to avoid going in. They made me feel so low!!! The
    worst part is I know I make more than they do!
