The first week of September is gone but making it to the end of the month is daunting for many of us, mostly because your needs and wants are measured against how much you can spend until your next pay check, plus. This is the time when most people start negotiating with themselves on what is or isn’t a priority so that they don’t go completely broke before the end of the month.
One thing that will always be a priority is having a meal; regardless of whether or not one’s funds are sufficient, one’s health and general productivity in the work place is partly dependent on what they eat.
