  • I am pretty frugal by nature. I have some cc bills I want paid to zero but it has changed my shopping habits even more.

    That is one one hand and on the other I am able to help more families begin afresh with a way to generate reliable income for themselves...so the bad news for the economy has been good news for my industry.

  • Well we were impoverished already so the economic crisis hasnt hit us as hard because we are used to living this way.

  • i have always been frugal and only bought what we needed but this is serious when before you were able to get by rather when you both loose jobs cause the company's you work for have slowed down. no new jobs in on the horizon either. were in big trouble.

  • Yes. I for one feel the effect. My hours have been cut to 8 a week. I still can't afford to quit. If I quit I don't get to get unemployment. We are now on our "cheap eats menu". We don't have a lot of bills but still............I am worried.
