“I couldn’t make ends meet. I was living paycheck to paycheck.”
“Stop living paycheck to paycheck and sign up for our credit counseling service.”
The phrase “paycheck to paycheck” is a common one to describe a dire personal financial situation.
But I’ve been turning that phrase around in my head, and I don’t think it gets enough scrutiny.
Because in thinking about it, living paycheck to paycheck isn’t so bad, and in fact, I might go so far as to suggest that you strive to live that way.
