@barbie doll What kind of work experience do you have? Are you proficient in any computer skills or something that would allow you to work from home? I know many do but they aren't sure enough of themselves to even consider doing something like this. Also, have you got an account with eBay and PayPal, Poshmark or any other service that you can buy and sell goods on? These are all an honest, open and sometimes quicker way to earn money than driving all over and looking for a job, going...

Shari L Dilley ·
Hello, my name is Shari from Western PA. I am looking to retire in three (3) years. My partner of 26 years and I are basically debt free. The house is paid for, we do not have any credit cards, and our vehicles are payment free. Our earlier planning was tossed out the window six years ago when we took custody of our now six year old grand-daughter. What began as a temporary arrangement is now a permanent addition to our family. I am looking for advice/solutions in two areas, building a...

Hi Shari, Sometimes caring about children, especially your own grandchildren, can put a strain on relationships and tug at your heart strings, we all want to do the right thing. The right thing would be to make the parents of your granddaughter be accountable. They had the pleasure of making her and now need to step up and support her, unless they are not alive.There are too many excuses we accept from them...snow flakes that melt under the slightest pressure & go running off, addiction,...

@Shari L Dilley It is a good thing your grandchild has a loving, caring grandmother such as yourself. I have to say that I agree with the previous poster, that if the parents of your grandchild are alive and able to help support this child, they should do so or be forced to do so by law. The truth is, this child is THEIR responsibility, not yours unless you have legally adopted it. It may seem harsh, but it's true. It has negatively affected you and your partner's financial well being. If...

Thanks Joe, you are right, the deadbeat parents need to be accountable. You raised a good point about adoption and the foster care system, many thanks to you and your wife for taking these children in, it had to be rough and with your background a great deal of compassion was shown to them. There are stop-gap charities and food banks to assist during rough times, hopefully you will seek them out. Maybe the dept of social services can guide you.

@redcatcec We were in the process of adopting two of our foster children when a liberal judge was elected and sworn in. Our two foster sons didn't want to go back to their mother, and she had fled the state to live with her sister in FL, leaving not only them, but their disabled and mentally challenged sister. The sister was sexually assaulted when the father of the youngest boy got drunk and the neighbor came in and committed the crime. The mother NEVER followed the guidelines to get her...

Shari L Dilley ·
Thank you all for the helpful advice. My situation is rather complicated by the nature of our custody agreement and the unwillingness of my partner to stop being co-dependent with his daughter. Assistance in our state (PA) is almost non-exsistant. We are just over the income level for food stamps and energy assistance. We all receive medical coverage thank goodness, due to my partner and I both qualifying for workers with disabilities insurance, Child support is a joke due to my partner.

@Shari L Dilley Your situation does indeed sound complicated, and I'm sure it is. Not living in PA, I don't know what if any support is out there for you. I know that we have had friends and my sister-in-law and nieces living there. The youngest niece has a situation very similar to yours. She has had to file for child support for one of her children from the father of that child, but he has refused to pay. Even with the possibility of having to go to jail, he won't pay. She has received...

Thanks again, I decided since I put a lot of hard work into my finances on February, it would be nice to use the gift card as a treat for my wife and I. They allowed me to split it up between multiple gift cards so I got a $15 card to Applebee's (my wife and I enjoy going there late night and taking advantage of their half priced appetizers), I then got a $5 Coldstone card as my wife loves Ice Cream and a $5 Starbucks card since I don't eat ice cream but I enjoy drinking coffee. I see a date...

Hey there! My name is Melissa. I'm a Community Relations Specialist at The Penny Hoarder. My primary financial goal is to pay off my credit cards!! Credit cards can be amazing but they make it so stinking easy to over spend. A follow up goal of mine, is to track my spending on paper each month and stick to a limit. This way I'll remember each credit card swipe and hopefully I won't rack up credit card debt like this again!

Hi Nathan, Do you have any suggestions of apps or tools? So far, I keep accountable to my family & bank account.

Like most parents, I will spend any money it takes for my son to be healthy & happy. So our lives detour but we were still able to get lots of trips in last year as well as the unexpected 3 weeks hospital stay without incurring any...

Great website but may I state that hope is not a strategy. How do you plan on driving traffic to your site? What is your goal to get rid of your debt? What is the timeline for creating your book? All great things you are stating in your postl. Your site is really good you have a great niche. Just wondering if you need help getting your website off the ground with some money.
