RT, since I no longer have the income from the mortgage I hold on a home in Florida (am in the midst of taking the property back via Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure), and having to re-roof the house before selling it again, I am living almost solely on SS myself. Right now, I am not collecting dividends and do not wish to until I am at least 70. Fortunately, I get an additional $200 - $300 per month for performing title updates and helping attorneys out with their real estate closing packages.

Like you, any little amount of increase in income matters these days.
