Kindness Journey – Day 140 – Dealing with inflation

The cost of everything is going up. We’re making adjustments here to compensate for the price hikes. It isn’t easy being on a fixed income, but I’m lucky. When I became disabled, the first thing I did was to rearrange my finances and paid off all of my debts.

We are making it through this inflation so far. We’re watching what we spend, we’re eating home-cooked meals almost every day and night. We have a sick cat we are caring for, so we make sure we have enough for him. Impulse buying is a thing of the past.

Honestly, I believe that the years I spent fighting to pay my debts prepared me for this time. Fiscal discipline is ingrained in me now, even without debts to pay off.

We will get through whatever life throws at us. We always do.
