Living on a Fixed Income?
If so, I've gotta question. I want to pick your brains. My DH and I both retired in our 50's due to chronic illnesses. so we took early pensions and DH got on Social Security Disability. I (the wife half) am in charge of finances. We get three deposits early in the month, that's our only income. Sometimes I run short of spending/grocery money before the month is over. We don't exactly starve but we can't stock up on grocery sales like we would like. This sometimes happens because of unexpected "emergencies". Like our car broke down and cost $2600 to fix. Need a car to get to medical treatments, can't scrimp on that. So by 2/25, when I opened my pocketbook,I had nothing. If you live on a fixed income, how do you manage? I'd really like to know. Is there a website or budget or book or anything you can recommend?
