If you knew 10 years ago how bad the economy was going to be now, would you have made steps to make now easier for you?

I definitely would have.  I wouldn't have wasted money on the countless trips I made to Denny's on a weekly basis.  I would have stayed the hell away from ebay, too.

Yes I would have definitely made some changes. I would not have quit my job at AT&T, I would have listened to my parents and bought a house instead of just renting, since now it is so hard to be approved to buy. I also would not have gotten all caught up in having the newest and latest gadgets and instead I would have saved that money.

We are doing okay right now, so I would not change to much. We were poorer back then, so we wouldn't have been able to do to much diffrent. I might have tried to save a little more money, but it would have been a little tough since we didn't have much. I might have continued to work or gone back to work sooner after my daughter was born. But because I didn't I found the nice job I have now, so I can not complain to much.

I would have made different decisions definitely.
