It's the end of the month so rent and all the other exciting bills are due so that leaves me with no money to buy food or go to the gym. It sucks when healthy food is so much more expensive than the unhealthy food. I've been trying to find ways around it but for now I'm doing my best. I really need to get a budget or something started so I can see where all my darn money goes every month! Maybe next month will be a little more organized? I'll just go with that.

    Many years ago I learnt the value of having a budget. I started by writing down every single penny I spent. Very quickly a pattern emerged. I was totally surprised at some of my expenditure. As our life circumstances change, so do our priorities, so every so often, I go through the same exercise again to make sure I'm making the best use of my income. I also find it helps to spread my bills over the month.

    Over the years, I've picked up many economising tips too that help me cut down on bills. I wonder what it would be like, not to have to worry about it. I agree with you about how frustrating it is that healthy food is often more expensive. Any way, good luck with your budgeting.

    If that's your son in the picture please don't tell me he's going to go without food. Have you considered a food bank? I'm sure there are some in your area. Also, there are some things you can buy that don't cost a lot. Brown rice, beans, peanut butter, whole grain bread, dry milk, frozen vegetables. Just think of whole foods instead of a bunch of processed stuff. There are tons of healthy foods you can purchase.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you!

    I am retired and don't get the amount of money I got when I was working. It is very tough to meet my bills AND be able to eat. My only fun is going to a movie once a month. Other than that, I exercise at home, walk the dogs and fortunately I have enough exercise equipment at home to work out on.
