I too am on a super tight budget as I have recently posted. The only advice that I can give at this time is on your clothes:

I too am in plus size and I will tell you that Kmart and Walmart have a decent selction and I have never paid over $14.99 for jeans at either place and they do clearance them regularly. Also once you know your size in certain brands check on ebay. I have bought the plus size old navy jeans for cheap on there, some with the tags still on. I know it is very hard to find bigger clothing at the thrift stores and such as I do my shopping there for my children.
Also the bra extenders work wonders as I purchased them for under $5 for 4 bras.

Just keep at it!!! I have no room in my budget for fun money or clothing either and I become VERY discouraged at times. Especially siince I have children and feel as if I am depriving them somehow. I only have $100/month for debt repayment. But you have to start somewhere and just think of where you'd be if you weren't bothering to even try.

Keep up the good work!!!
