No Christmas for my kids user banned

ok so I've found an apartment.. It's 2 bedrooms with 1 bathroom fully furnished & rent & utilities are $1450. That took up most of my savings so now I'm stuck. I have some money left but that's for other things like groceries and a medical procedure I'm thinking about doing...

Now I won't be able to buy Christmas presents for the kids.. I kno kaylin and Stephany will be getting presents from their dads but the others won't. I want to ask Josh's father to help me out but I already owe him some money.. I actually owe a lot of ppl money.. Does anyone have any ideas where I could go to get free presents?

Is the medical procedure elective? If so I would put that off temporarily. Ask your friends of family or take out a payday/cash advance loan. Salvation Army might help you or organizations like that.

check with churches. Check craigslist. there is always free stuff on there

And really, that medical procedure is needed asap, if that's what you've decided.

if your medical procedure is getting your tubes tied, why don't you just not have sex & get your kids some presents with that money? get the procedure done down the line when you can pay for it.

Also, how areyou going to cram 6 (potentially 7) kids and yourself into a 2 bedroom?

Look for income based housing. At least you can find the space you need at a better price

The procedure is an abortion. Not something that can wait.

No the procedure is necessary and needed ASAP. I've asked so many ppl for loans I can't afford it. I will check out some places tomorrow

Toys for tots and salvation army have their sign ups in November. It's way too late to get help from them (usually)
