All my life I have basically lived from pay cheque to pay cheque. It’s what you do when you choose to work in the helping professions. No major debts, (except bond repayments), no major luxuries, and learning to make do with what you have.
You know where to find bargains, and you simply can’t afford to do labels. Not that that is important to me, anyway. If it had been, I would have chosen another profession.
