your story from the recession?

Recommended Posts

Tee    2

I tried this book because I thought it'd discuss a family's negotiation of the recession. I came through fairly intact but I know many people who had to declare bankruptcy, experienced foreclosures, etc. Anyone want to discuss those things?

I cancelled cable ten years before it became popular to do so, have used Magic Jack for the same ten years, and don't go out to movies or concerts or restaurants. I didn't send my kids to private school. My "extra" cash goes into savings and I know I'm lucky to have any extra. I shopped at thrift stores when I didn't need to, so I haven't been devastated by the necessity now. Still, I lost things, and it still hurts, but I paid my taxes and managed household finances.

Must be others...
