  • we are staying home more, especially since our budget just got really tight. with $20/week in our gas budget we can't afford to go anywhere but where is necessary. good thing the pool and playground is within walking distance, since we visit one or the other daily.

  • We are already on a tight budget and basically do everything minimally anyway so nothing really changed for us. I just have less money to buy craft stuff. I make diaper cakes to auction off on Listia.com but I cant do it as often now.

  • The only thing that has changed for us is I put my daughter on the bus for school instead of taking her because my husband takes my car to work cause it gets better gas mileage than his and we dont have to put gas in two cars all the time...Im a SAHM by the way so unless I have plans dont need my car everyday anyways, and I always have his in an emergency.

  • We're doing as before, the car only moves out of our driveway to go to work, school and the store. Good thing we live close to the library and the park!
