No Food, No Money on Christmas Day

Posted by anonymous at December 25, 2011
Tags: 2011 December  Money

I had to use the roll of quarters I use to do laundry to go buy food on Christmas Eve. A roll of quarters is $10.00. I used that to buy yogurt, celery, a candy bar and 2 ounces of feta cheese. So that was my Christmas Eve dinner. There was still some celery and yogurt left so that is what I ate for Christmas Day. I won't get my Social Security benefits until January 3rd and there is no food left in the house. I have no idea how I will eat for the next 8 days. I already went to the food bank 2 weeks ago and they only let folks get donated food once a month. It is very depressing.

I get $1114 a month from Social Security. My rent is $600 a month for a one room studio, which is always the first thing I pay. That leaves $514.00 left. A monthly bus pass is $100 a month - which leaves $414 for utilities and food. It is always the same story every month - there is never enough money for my food budget, since utilities are about $100 a month - $314 to buy food for one month is not enough to survive on. I use to get $16 a month in Food Stamps but that is going to be completely eliminated because I'm going to get a 3.6% COLA increase in Social Security benefits.

I don't turn on the heat very much in the winter and just bundle up with blankets, socks and a sweater most of the time. I have a $44 utility bill I cannot pay and my power will be turned off soon unless money falls out of the sky.

Youve got to create income any way you can. You got to spend very wisely. Look into thrift stores, food outlets, grow your own, for food. Look into moving in with a family member and share rent, mobile home with land, or farm. Any ideas? Why not before?
