"downsizing from a rental house to a cheaper apartment, "Whoops, I missed that. Apparently, she took a handout from the city (I'll give her credit, she's working hard to get freebies from everyone- state, ex-husband, boyfriend, the city, charities) and moved to an apartment.Seems like that would have been a perfect time to move to a lower cost of living area. I'm pretty sure you can find an apartment in Connecticut for well under $1,125/month that is not in an area infested with gang bangers and has decent schools.So I'm looking at her budget. She takes home just north of $2,400 per month (income plus child support). She spends $1125 on rent. If she's even halfway trying, she can cover food and utilities (electric, phone, internet, water) for another 675/month. She's getting medical coverage from the taxpayer (medicaid).That leave's $800 at the end of the month (plus whatever her boyfriend gives her). She drives and old car so there should be no car payment. Even if she spends $300 on gas/maintenance and entertainment, she has $500 to play with.That should be enough to cover clothing, leather boots, and the like.Why does she seem to owe money to everyone?
