Please how I can budget this?

OK. If Allen is not shorted hours his pay for two weeks will be $578.00 minus deducts including the $91.90 they have been taking out for 'insurance' ( the policy is a joke ). That would mean his gross pay for the month would be $1158.00 if he has the same hours this next pay period. I don't know how much he will come home with; I'll let you know.
Here are the bills:
rent ................ 535.00
gas.....................50.00 ( we pay more service fees than anywhere else in US - cost of gas is a third of this )
electric................25.00
phone...................5.60 ( we got special rate because Sean is in SoonerStart )
cell phone...........43.70 ( for when DH is out in the boonies )
life insurance.......62.20 ( I have had for 10 years; borrowed against it to pay some DR bills )
gasoline, etc......250.00
TOTAL..............$971.50
but this doesn't count the $150.00 worth of notices of 'pay this or else' or the $1,089.00 of bills still not paid...and no, we have no credit hence we have never had a credit card...also you notice this is the bare bills - NO GROCERIES. I have robbed the different Peters to pay different Pauls and if it wasn't for a friend's $50 in food nothing would have been in the house but tomato sauce. Sean has WIC and he eats most meals at Grandpa's (that is where the computer is ). 50 cents for 2 boxes of mac-n-cheese is good but it had gotten monotinous...We also have to send two passport photos and $25 dollars to upgrade DH's license from unarmed to armed security guard. He can get a good job then Pinkerton where to go...
I think I'm done now...
