How do you?

How do you do it? I mean really, how do you survive in this economy? I know money is tight for everyone, and we are doing everything in our power to make it but, What kinds of tips and tricks do you have to make it?

I have gotten rid of nonessential items. (Internet is essential right? lol)
We shop the sales more than we used to and even utilize the food banks when needed.
Hubby and I do not buy anything for ourselves unless is it mandatory.
We are even getting out of our high priced rental and trying to get into a much more economical modular home in a park.

So what can you say that you are doing to make things easier on your family?

oh my dear, I'm right there with you! I was out of work for nearly two months. We didn't have anything to give up though. We were living bare bones as it was. (yeah, internet is a necessity lol) I wish you good luck and good thoughts!

I have stopped going to stores. I have a hard time at stores...I love to buy things. I send my husband with a list of necessities and he is very good and just getting that. It's a start. We also refinanced our house at a lower interest's saving us about $400/ wonderful!
