We have been able to cut expenses significantly, but it was not enough. When we moved in a member promised to pay our rent of $3000 a month for the 1st year.
Unfortunately we only received 5 months of rent. We have been able to pay and work off some of the rent, but still owe several months. We did not get the support we needed to cover the rent and expenses, so we are going to have to move out. Moving out will not end the debt we owe to the landlord, but will stop us from incurring more debt along the way.
Our assumption that the Maryland Lotto Slot Machines would provide much of the income was wrong. Everyone, even the Lottery underestimated the usage. We have not even cleared $500 a month since the machines were installed. With regular usage they should have provided $15,000 each month, while we hoped for $5,000.
