I'm so tired of being broke

With all the dire predictions of a major snowstorm heading our way, I find myself not worrying about warmth or food. I am sweating how much I'll owe for snow removal over at my mom's house.

"How much I'll owe" ... it's a familiar theme here. I haven't had a raise in more than three years. Yet everything -- insurance, taxes, assessments -- has gone up. Plus I have been spending too much money.

And I simply must stop.

I have a cushion in that my mortgage is paid through August. I've done that intentionally in case I lose my job. I may find myself skipping my next payment and using that money to pay down my credit cards. Gulp.

I am so sick of worrying about money.


  1. it is a shame we allow ourselves to be a slave to the all might dollar....sometimes i just say...dang i will never be out of debt...don't i deserve to just buy this one item...afterwards..I am sick I was so weak! I am close to having my CC's paid..but am already have a list of the "I Wants"
    Gal, you are not alone!

  2. I can so relate to never getting ahead.
