Since the Dot.com collapse, and the Tech Sector fallout, rising Gas prices, Mortgage rates and other economics Hardships. What do you do when times get hard? I mean beyond the cut back on the Extras, and trim the Lifestye Fat (so to speak.) I am talking about the nitty gritty, facts. Putting the Top Ramens in the cupboard for the needed Calories, going generic, Eating lots of Bologna Sandwitches and Mac n Cheese, Pasta tonight, tommorrow and the day after, Making sure your kids get the high Cal meals, on a shoestring? How do the folks at WC stretch the old semolians? I and alot in my area are hard pressed economically, several plants have gone under (I am in a heavy textile region) and was curious as to how the WC Folks are making it through, what they do (maybe I can learn something new) or just are coping with the economic turn down. I know things are getting to a point where, even though it is said a depression is over or the economy is coming back, that alot of folks are still hard pressed, or feeling the pinch. Feel free to talk about it and share the knowledge, I am curious to hear others experiences.
