The financial crunch has hit our nation.. yet we can't say we were blindsided, because the warning signs were up for years. And my question is NOT about politics. I am independent, in that I vote the person, not the party - and I am not here to sling mud.
Assuming that we all know how to manage our funds well, even if we don't always, what new things are you doing to work around this difficult time?
For example: I go shopping every two weeks. This saves me on gasoline, plus greatly reduces impulse buying (I am talking about the grocery store only in this comment).
I am car pooling, when possible.
I go to cheapie movies... I am willing to wait.
I stay out of stores which might temp me to buy what I don't need right now.
I have cut up my credit cards, and only use my bank debit.
these are just a few things I have done - what about you?
