Handling hard times?

Posted Saturday, February 28, 2009, at 10:26 AM

Hard times often bring out the worst or the best in people. How are you coping with hard times?

I have been watching every penny spent and not buying things that are not necessary, like chips at 4.00 a bag and other things.

What about you?

I have been unemployed since Thanksgiving. Well all you can do is try and pay your bills and of course nothing is left after that. Pray and be thanakful for what little provisions we are blessed with. For God will provide a way for us. In ways that we as humans can not see nor understand.

I too am not buying junk food, I plan my meals out for each meal then only buy what is on my list. And we just plowed the garden almost twice the size then last years and what I don't can I'm going to sell.

I have been unemployed since december 19th the day of our christmas shutdown so you can imagine how hard that was to take. I have been constantly searching for work, with no luck and hopes of finding one is slim. You do what you have to and hold on to what you have saved even if that means letting go of certain things you take for granted every day. an example, a cell phone if you have a home phone why do you need it? I look at it as one less bill to pay.
