  • Very. We are middle class, but I feel sooooo poor. We have to have an SUV to fit our family of 6, plus misc children that we always have tagging along. It already costs $90 to fill our tank and we have cut our grocery bill as much as we can. I don't work, because I wouldn't make enough to pay daycare for 4. I don't know how we will get by if it gets much worse. I'm going to can veggies from our garden, and my SO hunts deer. I don't know what else to do!!

  • That is why I am building my business from home. It is scary. Really scary where our economy is going. I am now taking some burden off DH with my checks each week. It helps.

  • Have you thought about a home business? It seems as the economy worsens, more and more people are attracted to our company. And--you have the opportunity to earn $300 in free gas this month in addition to your regular check. PM me if you would like to know more.
