I work with a lot of amazing people and when we talk about what they are doing I start to think. I don't understand how they can afford to take trips and buy all kinds of stuff. I know I have a family and responsibilities but how do I work two jobs and can't afford food. I feel bad when I just grab a $1 biscuit from McDonalds. I go out to eat maybe once a month but yet I can't afford to buy anything. Do I just budget wrong or am I not putting money in the correct places. I'm not writing this for people to feel sorry for me. I'll work hard to get what I want. What can I do better to get the things I want or even need?
