My Undetermined Odd Jobs…..???

Husbeast’s work schedule this week has been 4pm-midnight and might stay that way this month. This is why I can’t get a consistent part time job in the evenings. His schedule changes too quickly.

I also had to close my main online shop because I couldn’t even afford the flat $30 a month fee.

SNAP- $210 – available on Nov 9th

We’ve spent $83 so far this month on groceries that couldn’t wait until SNAP came through.

We probably won’t be getting HEAP this year because they will not apply payments to electric bills unless the main heating is permanent electric and not portable space heaters. HEAP will pay a wood vendor but we honestly don’t need wood and every wood vendor who takes HEAP says orders needed to be placed months ago.
(Refresher: We heat mainly with a woodstove but there are rooms that it won’t heat so we have to use space heaters in those rooms.)

We already missed one food pantry this month. Ours is only twice a month. We missed it because husbeast was working that evening and there was no way for me to get there.
