Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
I can't believe that even you guys fall for the 1 child policy mantra - have you ever noticed that the elites (Buffet, Ted Turner, Queen Elizabeth, etc.) always have lots of kids?

A very strong, large family is truly the most valuable asset in life. "The Powers That Be" don't want us/you to have one, too, because they know that that is the biggest weapon against them. When a family can depend on itself, it doesn't need government.

Children can cost a lot of money if you raise them in a very spoiled atmosphere but you can also raise them in a thrifty atmosphere with good values. If your goal is to turn out adults that can help fix this messed up system, it can be done. (For example, Ron Paul said in farewell speech last week that homeschoolers would be the only ones that could fix this country and bring back the constitution.)

Be smart, be thrifty, and raise your kids right, people. They are a great asset.

As Dr. Laura used to say, "I am not raising a child, I am raising an adult."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27930921



People who advocate large families do so, for the most part, for old-age security for themselves. SELFISH.

And it is preposterous for anyone to believe that if decent and smart people crank out more kids they can save the world.

America and human society is a lost cause.

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Some of the most beautiful memories I have were from when we were extremely poor after having been moderately comfortable financially when my Dad had a stroke on Thanksgiving, money really doesn't matter. Family is what counts, that's what we learned and we all stool have and treasure the "crappy" handmade gifts we made for each other that Christmas.

You'll be fine, your heart's in the right place. God bless.hf

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
I have been there. I honestly know how you feel.

The first thing you need to do is enter survival mode, all moms have it.

Get rid of any luxuries (cell, cable, internet etc...) you may think you will die but I promise you won't and you will actually enjoy life much more.

Plan your meals so that you can have leftovers for lunches or dinners the next night. Turkeys are the good buy right now, roast one on a sunday and eat off of it turkey sandwiches, pot pies and soups off the rest. Make everything you can yourself, use coupons!

It sucks, it is hard, but sadly it is happening to a lot of people.

Good luck to you and God bless.
 Quoting: Oldmotherhubbard


I just picked up my gold earrings out of pawn this afternoon. Many people are just doing what they can. I even have a good job but can't seem to get ahead of the curve, I'm overdrawn every month.

Can you see if there are any food banks that can help you out? If you're not used to using the "social justice" safety nets, it may not occur to you. Also, you may qualify for food stamps, contact your county social services.

Look on craigslist for temporary work under "General Labor" or look in "Gigs". Also remember that hospitals are always hiring, even if you work in the laundry, it would be better than nothing. Also the hospital cafeteria staff has pretty high turnover and they are usually looking for people.

I have a friend whose college age daughter joined with a friend and they started clean houses together. They cleaned an apartment for an apartment manager and he liked their work ethic so he told them any time anyone moved out he would call them to clean the apartments.

Sorry you had to pawn your ring. Don't let it expire....

And I'll add this to my post:

WHY THE HELL does ANYONE need 4 kids?!?!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27889480


and there are more kids since there is child support. they must have been making a lot of money but they didn't save any of it or didn't make a budget. that is how most people live these days.

You said you sold it, then you said you pawned it, which is it?
If you sold it, its gone. If you pawned it you can get it back at some point with high interest paid along the way.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24156714


I am sorry for that confusion I use the term interchangeably but yes I sold it for cash.
 Quoting: BlackDahlia


I hope your husband wont be angry and that he understands. It sounds really tough in america just to survive. Sorry for what you are going through. Its tough here but its well hidden and the media dont talk about it. They call us the lucky county but its a bunch of bull.

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
I know he will understand. I sold my engagement ring and my wedding band inorder for us to survive. I did not know that my husband did the same. when we told each other we bought brass rings to replace the rings of gold. One day when things improve we will buy rings of gold, but until then we are happy with our band. we know that our sacrifice fed our family.

Sounds just like my story. There were 150 of us living in a shoebox in the middle of the road, and I my beloved husband and I had to make some huge sacrifices. You see, my husband had lovely shinbones and we had to fund his shinbone fetish website which was our primary source of income. Our second main source of income was my forehead modeling. We spent so much on shinbone polish and forehead wax to keep our careers going that it nearly bankrupted the family. One day I made a difficult and heartbreaking decision to sell my forehead so that we could afford shinbone polish for my husband. It was a long, cold walk home with no forehead, let me tell you. But when I arrived home with the shinbone polish, even more heartbreak ensued, for he had sold his beloved shinbones so that he could buy me forehead wax. Nobody ate that night, needless to say. We abandoned our family shortly afterward and I got a job as a checkout girl.

if this thread is really true I'm going to guess all 4 kids are in some extremely expensive private schools that they shouldn't be in... or OP has issues saying no to the kids which depletes their finances.
