The Dollar Stretcher
by Gary Foreman
I am a single mom raising two beautiful girls. Problem: I am a high school teacher that already works a side job at a Junior College and I clean two houses for extra income; however, I am still $1,000 behind each month. Yes, my ex pays child support, but I can’t seem to make ends meet. I am not living extravagantly; I really just need support from something. I don’t think I could be approved for governmental assistance because of my career. Do you have any suggestions?
Good question! Basically Maria is spending more money than she takes in. That’s a common problem. Let’s see if we can’t find a solution for her and others in a similar situation.
