    Re: limited money

    Well...
    Limited means you don't have much. It doesn't mean you don't have enough.

    If I have limited money left in my grocery budget, I would have to buy inexpensive food, but I may be able to feed my family. Rice and ground beef instead of steak and fingerling potatoes.

    If I don't have enough, then I can't feed my family.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
