This is my own story. Almost two years ago I decided to adopt a small but friendly service dog. After his much awaited arrival last year, I found myself budgeting that much more overall. Instead of a monthly fun cinema trip I now watch a few films on the cheap only at home or on my iPhone with him there.
And in the case of my big weekly food shop which is done exclusively downtown at Tesco's I since have had to cut way back on that expense. So I went over to a food bank at a local church a few times in order to see if I qualified for any more financial support and general help etc.
