Exactly how my mother is. I remember as a child, always wanting a snack or a different meat or cheeze for lunch. She always said she didn't have enough money. Yet she was always buying beer or wine. The price of either could EASILY purchase the snack, meat/cheeze I was wanting as a child.
She's a prime example of the mother I will NOT be to my children.
She also ran into some HUGE money problems. So she moved into my sister's house to help pay off all that debt. My mother's apartment was $800 in rent(my apartment is bigger than hers and we pay $710 a month). She's now paying rent, part bills at my sisters AND $800 a month for a huge storage unit for all her crap! Tell me how that's saving money and helping her pay off debt!!
