This morning on the news I heard that vegetable prices are up 18.2% over this time last year here in Canada and fruit is up 12% in the same time period. A few days ago I read an article about workplace pensions and how few people have them anymore. Thankfully as Chuck served 31 years in the Royal Canadian Air Force we do have his pension as well as a disability pension from his injuries he received while serving. I just read an article about a 72 year old lady living on Prince Edward Island who receives $1200.00 a month in pensions. She is making it but just barely. I worry about various family members who have no pensions and no savings. How will they survive in old age????? Friends tease us about being so frugal and not eating out or buying new clothes etc…… I grew up in a frugal Mennonite home so I guess it is in my bones!
Well, that's my rant over with. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
