IT’S SAD STATE OF AF­FAIRS FOR MANY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION OURS & YOURS -

We need to go back to ba­sics, re-eval­u­ate our pri­or­i­ties and bud­gets as we all need the ba­sics in life (“Our kids starved of help”, 15/4).

A roof over our head, food in our tum­mies, love and care for one an­other.

If monthly com­mit­ments are crip­pling be­cause you are paid fort­nightly, break your monthly bills into fort­nightly pay­ments.

If you can’t have the lol­lies, choco­lates or Mac­cas, then don’t try to spoil the kids by buy­ing them. A roast maybe out of the ques­tion but a casse­role and rice can stretch out and work. How­ever, $50 per week is not work­able. Have some com­pas­sion for those who are strug­gling.
