Welcome everyone to this brand new group! Glad to have you join us. Let’s start by sharing why you joined this group :)
I think I finally have adjusted to drastically smaller income after being forced to retire due to medical issues. I had an "ok" level of debt when making over six figures for many years, but quit working in 2008 just as house value collapsed along with my savings in stock market. All three at same time destroyed me financially, but comfortable enough now that I paid off a loan last month, but not saving or investing anything. Any advice?
I am 67yo. I remember getting dinged for maybe $50/ea on unplanned but necessary expenses. I even remember the $100 dings. This week-need to replace car battery=$234, garage door failed in subzero weather=$250; annual pet well check =$225; Annual agreement on HVAC=$198. My pension/SS doesn’t grow at this rate. I am at a loss as to what to do. My income $🔽 2020 due to Covid. I got a lousy $10 credit on my income taxes. Very frustrating
