She has 1250 in social security income and 50,000 in savings from a death benefit from when my father died 4 months ago. She has no other assets. Her monthly bills are less than $1,000 a month, including gas, groceries and insurance. I put her on a 5 year budget plan, giving her $2,000 per month for 5 years. Then she will have nothing left but social security. Each month she spends well over her budget with the majority of her spending done on the home shopping channel and mail order over the phone from catalogs. I can't seem to get her to understand the importance of saving her money should she need care in her home, car repairs, or any other unexpected expense. She blatantly tells me it's her money and she will spend it however she chooses. I've tried reasoning with her, yelling at her, begging her to wise with her money and she refuses, saying it's none of my business, although I am her only child and will be the one responsible for her care when she has no money other than social security. I don't know how to get her to stop spending and it is interfering with our relationship. What should I do?
