Verdict on Car

July 24th, 2012 at 11:18 am

Well, it is the rear ball bearing that is bad on my car. That is what I thought it was going to be. But they needed my car for a couple of hours to fix it. So my mom brought me to work and will pick me up at the end of the day to go get my car. I told them to go ahead and change the oil and rotate the tires while I was there. Saves me from coming back in two weeks.

My mom is getting her finances straightened out since my dad died. She is losing about 2200 per month. Which means that she won't be able to help me out as much. I am not sure what I am going to do. I rely on her help so much. I make pretty good money and I don't understand why I am always broke. I just don't get it. I have looked back through the month and there isn't any extravagent spending. We probably only spent $50 dining out. We have cut that way back buy it hasn't made a difference. I am just frustrated. And in three years I will lose the child support I get. i have got to figure something out before then or I will be screwed.

Thanks for reading my ramlings. I just have to vent sometimes.

    You say you make good money but you can't understand why you are always broke. Have you ever laid out your income and itemized expenses here? We can all help target areas where you may be overspending without realizing it. If you don't want to do that, I would highly recommend religiously tracking every single dollar spent for a month and put it into major categories, like Electricity, groceries, gas for car, car insurance, water bill, etc. etc.

    patientsaver gives good advice, especially if you take cash out, but then have trouble knowing where you spent the money. Tracking will help find those leaks!!

    Its very hard to save money while battling depression. Kudos to you for trying!

    Part of it is that you really are not a landlord. No shame in that, I'm not either. I think that you are going to have to cut your losses on the rental and sell, or live in it yourself. Even if its a one time loss, better that than tenants whom you have to evict. You have to free yourself and get rid of things that are costing you money even if you like them, or you think you need them (must be for your personal immediate use), or you think eventually they will make you money. They aren't making you money at the moment and the complexity of managing them is draining you emotionally at the very worst time.
