    only vs just

    I think both sentences are possible and correct, but is there any difference between the usage of the word "just" and the word "only" in English?

    She has only enough money to meet her debts.
    She has just enough money to meet her debts.

    Re: only vs just

    Both sentences are correct.

    The words 'just' and 'only' mean the same in this context.
