6. Use Government Services If Applicable
There were times when we qualified for either Medicaid or WIC (Women, Infants and Children services, which provides formula or food for kids and breastfeeding moms) and while societally it's not what I would wish for our family, we certainly appreciated the help, especially as we were fostering babies.

If you qualify for this type of service, remind yourself that this is exactly what it's there for.
