I forgot to check my mail last night so when I dropped my dd off at school I checked it. I had a $400 phone bill, a $300 cable and internet bill, a $40 medical bill, and letter from my worker saying my FS are going down to $41????!!!!

What the hell? This is ridiculous. How the hell am I going to do all this and pay for food too? I'm crying right now because I cant believe this.

    Well for starters get rid of cable and internet and phone. Get an "obamaphone" for free. There I just saved you $700.  = )

    One month behind and your phone bill is 400 dollars..that means each month it's 200 bucks!

    You do not need food stamps if you can pay that. I have food stamps and my phone bill is 50 dollars through Revol. Unlimited everything and insurance on my phone. My phone isn't fancy, doesn't play games & I can't download anything to it. But it's a phone and does what I need it to do.

    No one NEEDS a fancy phone or plan. You won't die without it.

    You have $700 in bills between the phone, cable and Internet that needs to be cut back if not completely turned-off.

    Unless your TV does not work without it, cable is not a necessity and for that matter, neither is the Internet unless it's used for school.

    If this is a cell phone, you have too much phone for what you can afford and even being a month behind.

    If this is a home phone, change your plan.

    Call the medical facility or office and make arrangements on the $40 bill.

    ETA--your food stamp amount may have gone down if you recently reapplied and you've had any increases in your monthly income.

    FWIW, I am not trying to judge you or come off sounding harsh. I'm simply trying to help you.

    Well to be honest with you if it were between my family eating and the contract I signed I would say to hell with the contract. It will effect your credit, but you can fix it and pay them off later. Sorry your going through this :(

    Still though they shouldnty be that high even with being just a month behind so it looks like you need to change your plans and start looking at other options I rather have food in my house then cable, internet and a phone.

    I'm only a month behind because there was a mix up with my insurance company and my premium. So I couldnt pay them til I got that taken care of. Which it still isnt taken care of.

    Looks like you need to cut some stuff off and make a payment plan with them if they are going to be that high just being a month behind. We can go two months without paying our bills and they still would never be that high but thats also because we know how to live within our means and not above them
