I love the Beatles.. and I love The Wonder Years..
But this isn’t about either.. this is about me actually needing help..
Ever since I got cut back from 50 hours a week down to 15 it’s been a struggle.. Rent going up again isn’t helping… With full time we barely made ends meet as it was pre-rent hike…
Here is where I use emotional black mail to lure you into donating to my site.
I have 2 kids to take care of..
They are my everything.. I love them dearly and cannot afford where I live anymore..
My issue is that I can’t afford moving expenses either.. So I’m asking for your help..
I’m looking for donations to help us move into a new place. We’ve put in our 2 months notice and have to be out New Years Eve.
Before you start asking what I’m doing to help myself I’ll tell you..
– I work part time at a place that gives tips.. I have stopped spending the tips.. they are going to my moving costs..
– I do secret shopping on the side of my part time work and am saving that money as well.. sadly that only pays $3-5 a job and it costs me $3+ just to go out to said locations
– I do Avon as well to earn extra money but am still struggling to make a profit with that little endeavor.. I know a profit can be made.. I did avon once before and managed to make a profit from it back then.. I only stopped because I had 2 other jobs at the time and chose to quit avon.
– I am selling as much of my stuff as I can before the move.. clothes, electronics, craft supplies, artwork.. anything that isn’t nailed down.. and probably even some stuff that is..
But I have debts to pay off.. I’ve used my credit cards to make ends meet and need to pay those off AND pay for my moving expenses..
Once I live in a cheaper place I will be able to get back on track.. and who knows.. I might get a second part time job in the area I will move to..
Right now I’m spending $1800 a month on rent, hydro & transportation and only making $2200 a month, which leaves me with $400 a month for Groceries, bills & emergency expenses.
I know that I can get a cheaper place, I’m currently looking at a place that is $1100 all inclusive. I’d be able to pay off my debts, save some money for the next move I end up doing, buy my kids nice things again and not kill myself trying to make ends meet for a little while.
As you can see, I have an actual plan to get back on my feet, this won’t be me every single week begging for a handout.
Please.. anything you could donate would be incredible I really would like to change my life and I believe this is the first step to doing so.
Just to make donating easier for you, my entire blog is a link to my donate page.
Thanks so much in advance, you have no idea how much your donation means to me.
Big Mama & family.
