I don’t assume to know you. I just know how to budget for gear when there’s low income. If you have no kids to support or medical bills, we are quite similar in where I once was. Your income is lower than minimum wage here in the Northeast. I’m assuming one of you cannot work so you’re feeding two with that income.Well since you assume you know me, my household income is less than $20,000 a year. Yet my house is paid. So is my wife's and my car. I have no credit card debt. Would you like to continue on down this road or no?
Nevertheless, I was able to save for gear making slightly more than minimum wage and I had rent to pay, but whatever. I’m not going to argue with you.
