It isn't easy to live on $200/week for food, pet stuff, fun stuff, and car stuff - especially when you stick to it, so that when the money's gone, you don't get anymore stuff until the next week.
This week, I was surprised to learn that the cat had eaten all of his prescription diet food. He convinced me that he couldn't survive until Monday on celery alone, so suddenly a big chunk of my $200 was gone.
I've got 37¢ to my name (in the budget) now.
It's a sad day when your cat's grocery bill trumps your own.
