Poverty sux

Tonight on The Poverty Shuffle:

Went to QFC, bought four things (bag of 10 tortillas, 2 pound bag of carrots, a gallon of distilled water, and a single crown of broccoli), used four different payment methods to get it all:

1. I had 12 cents in pennies and 40 cents from returned cans, for 52 cents total.

2. I had 77 cents left on this Kroger gift card I got from the food bank.

3. I had 28 cents left on my food stamps card.

4. The rest I got on my debit card.

In other news, I made more progress on my writing today than I have in the past few days.

Been there!

Poverty does suck. I once lost 13 pounds in a month from lack of food. That was about 12 years ago... but yeah, you never forget it.
