Medicare B, D, and supplemental plus the additional costs of meds runs me $1500 a month on an $1100 SS check. Then there is rent and utilities and insurance. With food and gasoline, I have another $2000 in expenses. None of this covers Dental or dental cleaning or car payments or clothes or any entertainment. So, I have a minimum of of $4000 expenses on an $1100 income. Borrowing from Peter to pay Paul is almost at the end. All cards are maxed-out and “emergency” fund is minimal. Winter is upon us.
I’d love to read responses but there is so much spam (13, 569) that I no longer read the responses. Thanks to the inappropriate selling of shirts and meds, all these junk mail sits, clogging up the no-where. I can only write. But can’t read. Sorry!
