Easy Budgeting 101 for others on Aish replies
Hi, thanks for the encouraging replies as well as some constructive criticism (despite the profanity). I have to push myself to work at a very challenging job both mentally and physically.
I have a crooked spine, chronic ovarian torsion, frequent migraines, I am also hard of hearing and mentally disabled( I adapt to every single thing so I don’t slow others down), I have poor motor skills so my hands work much much slower than my brain does.
But i’m happy to work twice a week so I can afford extra things for my daughter like a new Halloween costume, going out for ice cream at marble slab etc. I haven’t had a new winter jacket for 4 years and i will likely be stuck wearing my spring one so I can make sure she’s warm(my winter one the zipper completely broke and now the buttons are falling off), but we smile, we dont let our financial situation get us down. And that’s the key. Its hard sometimes when the budget doesn’t work out or something comes up (like we had to go to a funeral in grande prairie a few weeks ago) that we could not budget for in time.
Because when your negative over money it eats at you :(.The budget I had shown you guys was personal. It was my budget, it was not full of lies as one reply stated. Nor is it full of sh*t. Its how we spend our money.
I will certainly ask my aish worker about the parent portion for daycare though. After rent is paid I get 973 from aish. I will ask As well about the low income for shaw. I am so glad I wrote the post and seeing the ideas and point of views from you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Fyi, I don’t work under the table( i’m too honorable and honest to work under the table, I cant even steal a piece of candy from the bulk bin at save on without feeling bad haha). My aish worker frequently checks my bank account and knows very well that I’m working.
I hope this answers a few questions and thanks again.
