The two most important things in life are food and shelter.
You pay that first and then if you have anything left over, you pay utilities.
Clothes, entertainment, toys for spoiled children, cosmetics etc...... LAST!
I can tell you from my younger years as a bill collector that people who whine that they can’t pay their rent are simply liars. Go inside and see what they have wasted their money on and then go out to the garage and see what kind of car they drive. It becomes very apparent.
I’ve been so poor in my earlier life that I had to sell welding cables to pay the electric bill.
I have absolutely no pity on the “I can’t pay the rent” crowd.
