When Prices Rise – Living on Your Income (pdf)

An increase in the price of goods and services can be traumatic. When you have to pay for things such as gasoline, food and heath care, other difficulties may arise, especially if you and your family are living on a fixed income. Realizing that your income does not go as far as it used to, even in covering just the basics, can be alarming. When prices rise, don’t panic, but don’t become complacent, either. Don’t stop credit payments or ignore the fact that you are facing financial difficulties. Surviving a financial crisis will take work and planning, but it can be done. But act as soon as possible.
