Feel like a cat in a bathtub

All over the place and trying not to drown. That is how I feel. I thought that over the weekend I could come up with some brilliant plans and globs of money, but I didn't. We are not ready to cut our Satellite yet, but I did get it reduced by $20 and we are probably going to cut Netflix. We are in a contract with Dish, so I would have to pay $190 to terminate early. I saved another $20 on our phone bill. Not including the other 10% I can save by taking my employer's information in. But I still need $500 by the end of the month to keep my account from going negative. And I still need $250 by 03/21 to pay my ticket. (My sister gave me $40 to go towards my ticket.) I did sell some jam, so I have $15. I'm guessing it should just go towards my account.

I also did some meal planning and food inventory. I can do 10 dinners without buying anything additional. So that seems pretty good. And we will have leftovers for lunches.

Hoping things will start to get better.
