We can't control the prices of the basics like food and gas, and rest assured that they will fluxuate and will continue to do so during our life. We can however, make our life more efficient. We can plant gardens and trade food with family and neighbors and cut out the non-essentials in our lives (like cable TV, candy, ice cream, movie theaters, DVD purchases, etc).
I hope that this blog can be an outlet for us all to share ideas and successes in combating the recession and lessening it's impact on our lives. Remember when you add something to the blog add step by step instructions so that others can duplicate what you do. When this is all over then we will all be better because of it.
