We’ve all known for a while now that we’re in a recession. It doesn’t matter if you want to follow the exact definition of a recession or not, most of us are feeling the pain in this economy. From a struggling job market to poor investment returns, we’ve no doubt felt part of this recession even if we haven’t experienced something as drastic as losing a job.
With the recession in full swing, many people have had to make changes in their life to cope. It might mean simply cutting back on frivilous expenses, or it could mean going out and trying to find another job just to make ends meet. Others may view this as an opportunity to try something new or take their life in a new direction.
So, what have you been doing to help you and your family get through these economic times? I know the poll can’t list every possible answer so I’ve created a few general categories and provided an “other” option where you can explain in more detail in the comments if you want. I think it will be interesting to see the diverse actions taken by everyone.
