obviously you have zero experience on the matter, and you should never need any of it

I should be working but yeah.

I initially was replying in the how do frum Jews make it thread

Judaism is essentially socialism

Single siblings in my family help out married ones with kids bh

No crazy expenses in my family . No one besides me has a newer car ( I lease and have a crossover SUV at $266 monthly nothing down.. lease is up actually)

I grew up buying st thrift shop, neighborhood clothing swaps.

People need to not get sucked into luxury.

If anyone thinks less of me because of the car I drive, the clothes I wear, the apartment I rent. I don't want this person in my life.

I feel honored when my shul asks me to contribute, when I can help my siblings, that the Jewish publication houses know me.

We have a long way to go as Jews, to really weigh what's important.

I know a story that happened over a decade ago,
a newly married couple moved to Monsey, the husband says I need a sweater, the wife replies sure lets go to the store, Metzios Place sells nice sweaters, okay they walk in to the store he chooses a sweater and goes to check out, how much is this sweater, Reply: Fifty, he is like really fifty and she responds that's correct fifty cents.

Budgeting doesn't help when the income exceeds the basic expenses, with Bidenomics where the USD is devalued at 40% over the last three years, and salaries basically flat the only option left is borrowing - good luck.

When Biden says "Give them a 40% Raise" he means to say give the dollar the buying power it had before I took office.

the money saved by moving out to unpopulated areas is swallowed by the cost of services, should it be schooling, therapy, busing, kosher food (well depending what hechsher you're willing to eat) etc.
True, when you begin to budget when you're way further down the road with a whole family, it certainly is less helpful if their expenses exceed their income. However, still beneficial IMO.

I should be working but yeah.

There is very much truth to this. Which is what i posted about in the thread when they raised the salaries for the kollel guys in lakewood

Bottom line the world was designed not to make ends meet and hashem wants our tfilos,
 ...

no one with a nice family size comes out ahead of the curve, except for a very small percent
Seems you are inadvertently agreeing with this.

might be worth having a serious family planning discussion since affordability issues are real issues.

Except it's not at gunpoint.

But this not the right place for this
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
