So we are like many other families in the sense that we live pay check to pay check. We are a three person household living off of one income (dad), disabled (mom) and 11 year old child. There is not a lot of wiggle room or money to spare but desire to at least put something away. We also need to get life insurance. The problem is we don't know where to start, where to invest and how to make any of it even possible. After bills we have about $100 a month and even then as like right now this is currently going to property taxes. I just can't seem to get ahead or where to plant our $ when there is opportunity. Any suggestions, any programs you might refer us to? All positive insight is welcome and appreciated. I know that this may seem like a long stretch but we want to at least try!
