    Out Of Pocket

    I couldn't be more broke, I thought. The big picture of a mortgage I pay off the year I retire, the little picture of not having any cash in my pocket and my overdraft maxed, yet again.  Only to be caught taking liberties and now waiting on the gory financial implications.Gulp...

    Tired, But Found A Small Helper.

    I can't actually do a 9-5 job as the doctor told me I shouldn't for some reasons. So this makes me live off welfare, but a special disability allowance welfare. It hardley makes enough to make each month connect to the next. So, I used to panhandle. I KNEW that was a bad idea...

    True!

    You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you're satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you've got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed...

    Seriously. I have worked for decades now. Have a good job and what most would consider an excellent income. I've even worked 7 days a week. Even THIS did not help us get ahead. My husband also has a good income. It seems our money gets sucked into a black hole. We always end up...

    I Hate Having Credit Card Debt

    It's like a dark cloud that is hanging over me at times. I hate having any debt! It's not as though it'll be impossible to pay off, but it will take years as long as I'm supporting a household on my own. Talking to other people, it's very typical these days, even in households...
