    I know how she feels. Growing up, my parents separated and shortly after that my father passed away. My mother became, and remains, a drug addict, so I have had to do it all on my own. I am half way done with my degree and it has not been easy. I just had a child and now face the struggles of trying to find a job while being a full-time student and full-time mommy.

    Yes, you are right when you say that no one got anywhere without sacrifice. I know that 10% is a lot when you are living paycheck to paycheck, but SOMETHING has to be saved for you. The bills should not be able to get EVERYTHING because you will always be left with nothing in the long run. Maybe we get lucky and one month something is cheaper than expected or we work a few extra hours to have a few extra dollars.
