Overwhelmed, underpaid, and exhausted

It’s a common theme in parenting, let alone parenting a child (or children) with autism or other disabilities. Good sleep is a rarity. Having more money than month is not. Put the two together and you’ve got the makings for a meltdown of your own.

You clip coupons, or print them from online services. You file for grants and assistance wherever and whenever you can. You cut back on the extras. And still, no matter what you do, you’re still drowning.

I can’t snap my fingers or wiggle my nose and make it stop, but maybe I can help point you in the direction of some simple things you can do to save money.
