How to Stop Living Paycheck to Paycheck: 4 Easy Tips

jumpstartWho would ever think to find life advice on Better Homes and Gardens or as the cool kids call it: BHG.  I found this article today talking about how to get ahead and stop living paycheck to paycheck.  If you are struggling and living pay to pay, do yourself a favor and make some home budget cuts.  The pressure of paying bills kills your joy when you are worried about where you will find the money.  Pay television, wasted electricity, wasted spending on eating out, gym memberships are just a few areas to review.

Trust me when I say, you will appreciate the eliminated stress much more than you enjoy television.

  1. Some of us need an article on how to live on government subsidies such as SSDI. They are minuscule and not meant to live on. The only reason I have a computer is my dad. The only reason I have a roof over my head and electricity, a/c and heat is my dad. I can’t live on what I get from the government. That is for food, gas for car, insurance for car (as low as it can be), medical bills and the minimum on my credit cards run up mainly from medical bills and my insanity caused by my mania. I will take credit for that part, but it still wouldn’t be enough to live on. I have been so bad off that I have eaten from the food pantry and that was kind of disgusting, at least the one in my area.

    1. I am sorry to read about your struggles. Sometimes we have to weather tough times, be appreciative for the things we have and educate, plan and prepare our minds for the future so when opportunity presents itself we are prepared. Or at least that is what I have done in the past.

      1. Thank you! I am worried sick what will happen if something happens to my dad. He is 83 years old. I try not to think about it too much because I have no ideas.
