times are tough, i think most eveyone can agree and relate.i just wonder what other families are doing to make it through the economic thing. you know coupons, 2nd jobs,etc..saving change,whatever.
my family has done alot to try and cut costs down.
one no more dryer, we use clothes line, and shower rod.
no more sodas,eatting out, things like that, it is amazing how much it has saved us.
i stopped smoking, that saved us $30 a week.
we made holidays and bdays simple with simple gifts, and food,.alot of pot luck meals for those things.
lights are all off during the day, all but the bathroom(no windows in them).
anyways, there are more things we have done, and i am interested in hearing new ways we can cut back.
