'Live from hand to mouth' = sống từ tay đến miệng -> nghĩa là sống lần hồi, sống cầm hơi, sống chật vật (to have just enough money to live on and nothing extra).

Ví dụ
We're fishermen who live from hand to mouth.

This is why there are players who end up being forced to live from hand to mouth, and I feel that this is a matter that all sides should take seriously and work towards a proper solution.

Kilonzo’s tax deductions is a grim illustration of just how President Uhuru Kenyatta’s fundraising measures is forcing the poor and the not so poor to live from hand to mouth, unable to build up any savings.

Many of our middle-class income earners have had to tighten their belts because of rising prices due to inflationary effects. Even my family has had to adjust our weekly marketing budget due to rising prices of commodities like food, water and oil and gasoline. Many of us are already suffering due to inflation. Can you imagine how are poor in the metro and provinces coping out? They live from hand to mouth and some eat only once a day. That’s the effect of TRAIN 1, higher cost of living.
