I have had the same thing happen and I work full time and have my son full time and it’s still hard. I basically do things like buy meat in large quantities when on sale and use my slow cooker a lot, as you can get away with cheaper cuts at better prices. I reassessed everything I was spending money on. I use my dryer now very sparingly if at all. I do cold water washes in washing machine. I also go to sites that give you freebies. I bought a set of clippers to use on my son’s hair to save money. Pay bills like someone else said in small increments or if you have to get a payment plan. Encourage and get excited with the kids about doing free activities where you can, like going to the playground and having a picnic or going for a hike in good weather. Gee there is so much and so many adjustments I have had to make that it’s hard to think of all the cuts.
