Living on a Fixed Income

Living on a fixed income can be difficult as rents and food prices keep rising. You have to keep finding something to throw overboard:

  1. Give up going to movies, theatrical events and restaurants.
  2. Buy all your clothes at the second hand store.
  3. Give up using the bus.
  4. Reduced calorie diet.
  5. Give up TV cable service.
  6. Give up the phone.
  7. Get greens from community gardens.
  8. Make no more than one light bulb at a time is lit.
  9. Give up cheese.
  10. Give up all prepared foods.
  11. Use meat only as a condiment.
  12. Diet of rice, beans and noodles.
  13. Wash your clothes in the bathtub.

Then what?
