Lisa Bradley admits her spending is out of control. At the time the couple purchased their new home, Lisa says, "Steve even told me we couldn't afford it, but I wanted it." Lisa admits to maxing out all her credit cards and not being able to make the payments. In one month, her cell phone bill was a whopping $398.84. In order to purchase her pricey new truck, Lisa admits she forged her husband's signature. Now, she has $1,100 in car payments every month.
Eating out is another big expense for the Bradleys. Lisa says she doesn't cook—instead, they spend about $100 a day on takeout. And because Lisa doesn't like to do dishes, the family uses only plastic dishes and utensils—another expense that can really add up.
