I m on a fixed income with very limited resources. My income won't cover the costs of some essential household items. I have to use my income for rent, food, personal hygiene, and bare necessities. I have very little to none left each month to put towards the simple things such as essential household items.
I'm from Highland Park, MI and have lived in the Detroit area all my life. I am a senior citizen who retired from Frito-Lay in 2007. Now that I am retired, I spend my time playing chess, taking walks through the park, listening to music, and watching music videos and movies.
