Money Saving Mommies

As you know I like to pass on interesting sites, etc in the world of Dollar Stretching. Just today I found Money Saving Mommies (link here).

Your hostess is Mommy B. who is a stay-at-home mom of 3, who's making a go of it by saving money at home. Pay her a visit. You'll find an interesting blog. I thought that the diaper post was especially good. 

Keep on Stretching those Dollars!

I have a problem. I was laid off in August of '08, and have not been able to find work at all. I am drowning in debt. It's hard to pay the monthly bills and keep food in the house at the same time. I just had to apply for foodstamp benefits. This is really hard, and I am considering bankruptcy. What should I do?

Are you a single mother?  I believe there are lots of programs out there to help women especially if they have children.  There is also a program called Family Promise that you may want to look into.  Consider talking to the people who you owe money to and see if they will work out an easier payment plan.  Could you move back with parents or have a border or two to help with income?  I am not trying to pry into your personal affairs, but if we knew more information, maybe we could make better suggestions.

About Gary

For more than 25 years, Gary Foreman has worked to manage money effectively. Prior to starting The Dollar Stretcher, he was a financial planner and purchasing manager. While helping clients manage their hard earned money as a financial planner, he applied commonsense, time-tested techniques during the turbulent 1980’s. The experience convinced him that you didn’t need to hit the lottery to accumulate significant wealth. Following that, Gary had an opportunity to learn more about how to get the best value for a dollar spent in the corporate world. As the Purchasing Manager for a computer manufacturer, he was responsible for supervising over $10 million in annual purchases. Gary began The Dollar Stretcher website <www.TheDollarStretcher.com> and newsletters in April 1996. Over 300,000 readers benefit from the time and money saving ideas presented in The Dollar Stretcher newsletters each week. His mission is to help people "Live Better for Less". He also provides private label newsletters for companies wishing to provide money saving information for their clients and/or prospects. Gary lives in Florida along with his wife of thirty years and their two children. Much of his time is spent working with the men's ministry of his church. One of their ongoing projects is the "Holy Smoke BBQ" which sells bbq on Friday nights with the profits going to support local foster kids and orphans. When he has a free moment you’ll find him restoring a Checker station wagon nicknamed “Two Ton” or cruising in a '65 Impala SS Convertible with doo-wops playing in the background.
