In these tough economic times we all need to be a little bit more creative about how we save money. Three years ago my husband and I both had full-time jobs and were able to live a pretty comfortable life. One day everything changed when I was laid off from my job with no notice or severance package. We would have liked to sell our home and move into a smaller place, but since the housing market was so lousy, that wasn’t an option. We would have had to take a hugeloss that we couldn’t afford.
We had heard from a friend here in Texas that we could get a better electricity rate so we started looking for electric companyrates. We also downsized our cable and internet packages and I started clipping coupons for groceries. I never thought I’d be able to save so much money clipping coupons but that has been huge. We know we’ll get through these tough times and that things will get better. We just need to stick together as a family and give each other the support we need.
