I notice that, so far, the most popular answer to the survey in the post below is "catch up on bills". In other words, there are lots of people behind on their bills, which is probably due in large part to inflation and the almost-recession (or recession, however you look at it).
I'm so thankful that I no longer have to play "catch-up". If a bill comes in the mail today, it is sent out tomorrow. This is new to us, so I'm still getting used to it; but I sure don't miss having a pile of bills to go through, wondering how I'll manage to rob Peter to pay Paul.
