What do you need to buy that can't wait 5 days?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13788939


5 days of food, but the other 3 weeks you need to pay the bills.

Oddball: We see our role as essentially defensive in nature. While our armies are advancing so fast and everyone's knocking themselves out to be heroes, we are holding ourselves in reserve in case the Krauts mount a counteroffensive which threatens Paris... or maybe even New York. Then we can move in and stop them. But for 1.6 million dollars, we could become heroes for three days.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13127957


yeah, i have been there. There is one way through it though, you know............
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: I have $130.00 to last me 5 days. Anyone in a worse situation?
I had a really desperate week just on a year ago.
I had $8 to last 10 days after paying a truckload of bills that came in all at the same time.

I took my fishing rod on the weekend and caught about 5 decent size fish to last.
I bought a dozen eggs and live on fish and omelettes until my next day.

I loved it so much, I still go fishing at least every second weekend to stock up on fish.

Fresh fish is really expensive, so I feel like I'm saving money.

I've got $15 and no gas in my tank, and not a lot of food in my fridge. I don't worry about it though. I've been living on the edge for a while, been here before and know it's temporary. Everything changes. I'll get through, I won't starve and it'll happen again.

Re: I have $130.00 to last me 5 days. Anyone in a worse situation?
I doubt any one here has it as bad as I do. I had a GREAT job and was making good money. I got hurt at work (neck broken) While I was in the hospital my wife comes in and tells me she is leaving me for the guy she has been seeing because she loves him and I am a crippled. I have my car repoed, lose most of my stuff and have to file that I am bankrupt. I spend a year getting better and tring to put my life back together, which I do.

I meet a nice woman and get remarried to her and take her two children as my own, thanks to getting my neck broken I can never be a father. So my wife gets laid off a few weeks ago and now we are a family of 4 trying to live off of a $880.00 disablilty check, while my wife looks for a job.

My wife also refuses to apply for food stamps even though we could really use them. So while she is trying to find a job in a town without jobs we are in deep. My check will not even pay our rent and bill, much less pay for food, meds for me or gas and we just lost health care on my wife and kids when she was laid off. So as of right now we have around $1600.00 due in bills and I think together we have around $32.00 to our name.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6596609


You really didnt need to jump from divorce to married so soon and with family again since you are disable.
But since whats done is done you can go sign up for food stamps your self.wife doesnt have to do that.Go sign up.Probably qualify even if she goes back to work with 4 in the family.

Re: I have $130.00 to last me 5 days. Anyone in a worse situation?
You know what makes a big difference? Cooking for yourself and not buying "convenience" items on your way to and from work.

For instance, I NEVER and I mean NEVER buy a cup of coffee. Make what I need at home for pennies, take a cup for the road. Stopped buying lunch too. And I don't make fattening expensive lunches. Know what I do? Home-made soup. A pack of chicken thighs is like $3.50 and I chop up every vegetable within reach. I simmer this with a cube of boullion for like 2 hours. People at work beg me to bring them some of my soup, it's that good. Plus I lost 5 lbs since I started eating only soup for lunch, and am eating more veggies. It's so easy and the cheapest. Probably saving at least $25/week in lunch cost alone.

Dinners are similar. We almost NEVER go out to eat. When we do, we only have appetizers and 2 drinks just to be out and have fun. Every other night, I make home-cooked food and my man has commented on how he watches me prep dinner in like 15 min. He's like "why do we wait 45 min in some restaurants?" It's really cheap and easy to make low-cal nutritious dinners at home. I throw together stuff like chicken cacciatori, steak and broccoli, stir fry, pasta and sauce, pork chops and salad with mashed potatoes. These dinners do NOT cost a fortune folks!

Eat fewer meals away from home and you will save the most money of all. The average person probably spends like $30/week lunch, $10/week coffee, $40/week dinners & breakfast. That's a lot! It's what should be spend on groceries in a week.
