    It is pretty interesting..
    they're a family of 7..
    This family had everything...big bucks.. Dad had a big bucks contracting company..
    They lost their home, everything..
    They're counting change now because they're $300 short on the rent...
    They had $2 left on their food card...
    Kids went in dumpsters and collected cans to try to help..

    Yet.. i saw one of the daughters had a cell phone.. [​IMG]

    Not sure if its on every week or not though..

    Cell phones, bah humbug! If they are that bad off, they can get rid of that cell phone. And there are free cell phones for folks on public assistance (if they are)--my BIL just got one. Has 200 free minutes per month on it.

    Sounds interesting.I will look for it.Not sure what WE is. I would dump the phones too even though it would mean no talking to dh while he is away for weeks at a time.I would want one just to call someone if I broke down.One of those minutes phone.
