31. I'm self employed and have pretty much always lived month to month.
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 10:40 AM by MilesColtrane
January and February have always been lean, but next year's looking particularly bad.

If I have no income I can survive one month without going into more debt.

After that, I guess I'd swallow my pride and ask a relative for a temporary place to live rather than being out on the street.
