    Yes, I have very little buffer in terms of saved money; and personally I wouldn't want it any other way at the moment.

    From time to time, yes. There are times when you just spend too much, too fast. I have a good saying for that actually. "At the end of the money, I usually have some month left over."

    For the most part I do, fortunately my husband doesn't so much and is willing to share smile  There was a time though, when we did have things much tougher and making ends meet was more of a challenge.  I don't see how young couples (or individuals) get started out without help today - it is a rough economy no matter what they call it.  And divorced people who are working to help support two households, or those on a fixed (low) income, I truly feel for them.

    Yes! My family of 6 budgets like crazy too but no matter what we r in the same boat. I recently started to try couponing to help save money and I'm hoping it works. Funny enough I wrote a hub about my struggle about living pay check to pay check. I hope this economy gets better soon bc I know I can't take much more.

    Yes, I live paycheck to paycheck.  It is hard and scary.

    We do live pay check to paycheck even though we do respectfully well.  It seems everytime our income increases, we manage to increase our expenses as well.

    I'm a freelance writer... Yes I do live paycheck to paycheck and it is exhausting and nerve-racking. Looking forward to a contract position at some point.

    Yes, I can relate...........there was a time, when I said, " wow, I have 5 dollars.........should I buy diapers, milk or a weeks worth of gas"  ( yes, there was a time, when $5 worth of gas was a lot)

    Through the years, I learned how to budget and manage my money.  Though, I am not "rich".........I always seem to have enough for the bills and a little "hidden away" for the emergencies and good deals.

    While, I do know, first hand, about the hard and difficult choices, this is a point in my life, where I can be somewhat more relaxed.

    Still, I know, that tomorrow, my good fortune may change, I choose to shop carefully, plan ahead, and waste nothing.

    No, I have always hated not having some money saved up.  Living paycheck to paycheck creates too much anxiety for me, I rather do without and save five dollars just to have.

    The reality is a lot of people are living paycheck to paycheck nowadays. Between gas, the rising cost of living, unexpected financial expenses, and everything else it can be hard to keep on top of everything.
