Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought six, result misery.

Charles Dickens, from David Copperfield

      • Like you, I like a little cushion. In my just married years, we cut it close, too close for comfort. Credit is nice, but for us, it was too tempting. Digging out of debt is a long, slow process that takes a lot of discipline. It was miserable and I will make sure I never go through it again. Payday loans didn’t exist back then, by the way. Thank God.
