Stay Healthy GIGO
Maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay off medication. Nothing can eat away at a budget faster than paying for prescription drugs. Right now I'm on an aspirin regimen and I had other inexpensive prescriptions which I stopped because they had side effects. I've seen people take a pill for one thing and then have to take another pill to counteract the side effects of the first pill and so on and so on. Till all of a sudden they have to take a handful of pills every day. Keep your money. Change your health the old fashioned way through diet and exercise. Good high quality food is better than drugs. There's a saying in the computer world: garbage in garbage out or GIGO, for short. Don't try to save money buying fast food. It may be cheap, but it will also make you sick in the long run. Why end up with diabetes and high cholesterol when a nice can of sardines at home is just as cheap and better for you than a burger full of salt and bad fats on a bun made with sugar. Eat as fresh as possible. Fast Food is a myth. Often it takes less time to prepare fresh as it does to run out and pick up something supposedly convenient. Keep your money at home where it belongs.
