Default Re: How To Manage On A Tight Budget With Fibro

Great post 1sweed.

I'm lucky i am not on such a tight budget as you but ive always approached life from the same angle.

Pay the main bills first and budget sensibly for the rest.

I think my overall approach also come from my upbringing from farming and quite low income family back ground.

My grandma darned socks and cooked hearty meals with cheaper cuts of meat and packed with fresh veggies ...her saying was 'take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves!'

I read the tip about not going grocery shopping on an empty stomach years ago and realised it was true....stops you buying snacks and things you fancy and sticking to whats actually needed for meals.
