Being a single mom is never easy. I promise I am not perfect far from it. I have my good months and I have my months where I am like why me. This week has definitely been that for me. Check out me and some of the struggles that I go through.
By the time this is released I will be on a bus heading to work…… wait Pretty Frugal Diva I thought you had a car. Oh I do I am currently paying for a car that is not working. My alternator or starter is out and I don’t have money to get it fixed. So I have been saving little by little. No worries I was using a family members car to get to my part time job and low and behold today…..that car died too (same issue just call me the alternator killer). So now I am dipping into the little savings I had build up to get to work.
I was at first thinking my tax refund would get me out of this hole. I am unfortunately having to mail in my return due to the fact my identity was stolen (in 2013). My PIN was sent to a old address so now we are talking 4 to 8 weeks of me on the bus to get everything.
At one point I was being frugal cause I wanted to and right now I am frugal cause I have to. No matter what I want you to know that if you fall and no matter how far you do. You can always get back up and get your budget and life back in order.
Never do I want to come off as perfect on my site and act as if my life is perfect. Its far from it. I am a single mother that doesn’t receive the help she is suppose to much less what she needs having a teenager but by the help of my part time job (I have been looking for full time) and this site. We make it.
This is not to ask for help this is just to hopefully inspire that young lady that is wondering how she is going to make ends meet. Keep working, keep praying and know that trouble doesn’t last always.
Follow me on this site as I get my life back and get out the debt I am in. Its not always going to be happy but it will be REAL.
