<< This is all building net worth, but our grocer doesen't accept net worth for food. We would like a cash return of 6% or more. Junk bond funds are ok but how does one find them. Also higher dividends might be the answer. Suggestions???>>

What's the problem? Are you enamored of paying ordinary income tax rates instead of capgain rate?

Why not just sell enough stock to give you the cash you need? Seems to me that a stock portfolio gaining 12% and throwing off 0% can give you more cash-in-hand than a bond portfolio gaining 0% and throwing off 6%.

Believe me, you grocer doesn't care if you pay with capgain dollars or dividend dollars.
