Oh dear, why can't I manage my finances ? by johnnythemonkey on 12 November 2009 12:38pm
 
I just opened my bank statement. The bare bones are...
Opening balance -£205.68
Closing balance -£343.62. Meg keeps telling me that I live beyond my means and my reply is " Cashflow my dear, no probs. " Oops.

I find it difficult to deal with finances. It was always Nick's part to deal with money matters because he was so good at it. I dealt with letter writing, phone calls, etc. as he was not a good communicator. Now that I have to do the finances, I am always broke by the end of the month. I also have debts but I am paying them off bit by bit and am improving. Once I am better, I will be able to work and increase my income. This will be Mid- Feb at the earliest so it's belt tightening at the moment.

Because there's a recession/depression going on?

The cost of food / groceries / sundries has increased dramatically while income has not.

Any time we have a financial crisis in our family I think about solutions then discuss with everyone. The solutions are sometimes difficult to implement but we have always come to an agreement which solves the problem. It is amazing what simple measures can do for keeping your bank account in the black.

I have an authorised overdraft facility and tend to use it constantly !

There are certain things you must not skimp on, no matter what craziness swirls around you. Good coffee, cervical and lumbar support, underwear that fits well, things like that.
