Having my parent's help really put us in a better place. We have about $2k in the bank right now. And I am saving every last little bit so I can pay my parents back before year end. I am excited about that since it is just a matter of cutting back. I also want to buy them a washer and dryer with my own money.
Tomorrow is not a pay period, but next week is! And I am excited about that. It's nice not to have to worry that I am not getting paid tomorrow. So this is how financially-secure people feel.
I love it!
