Things just seems to keep getting more expensive.
Got rid of cable tv
No dining out at restaurants.
Switched to budget food at budget supermarket.
No more day trips in the car-too expensive, try to use car less and walk more.
Have not been able to travel to see family.
Gone without some medical care, too expensive.
Not buying clothes, shoes or anything else unless it is absolutely necessary.
Dryer broke, just hang clothes or use laundromat.
Unable to move, need a cheaper place now, rent just seems to keep going up.
Trying not to use the heat unless it is really really cold. Thank goodness you do not need air conditioning up here!
However, around here, it seems like it is a little busier, and some of the places that were empty after 2008 now have new small businesses. There is
more traffic too, for a while the streets, even the freeway looked like a ghost town. I never thought I would be happy to see more traffic.
