I just got paid today by my day job and between the electric, water, gas, and food, I'm almost broke. And there's two weeks till the next payday. Then I help hubby pay the mortgage.
I got this suggestion at work today, and I'm seriously thinking about using it. I mean, it's now $60.00 a tank of gas for my van and that lasts a week.
When I started driving, gas cost around 60 cents a gallon. And my parents were complaining about the inflationary price of gas then. That was in the mid '70s.
I went to buy meat at Publix (a big grocery store chain in Florida where my son Keith also works) and I hardly purchased any. I'll see if Walmart's prices are any better tomorrow.
I see I need to write write write just to feed the family.
Oh! And I think I'm sending the kids outdoors to sell lemonade on the street.
