How's the economy affecting you?

Talking with a Wall Street Journal reporter last week about how the current economic madness is affecting single women head-of-households. Here are some thoughts.

  • living on credit cards
  • increasing debt
  • cutting even non-frivolous expenses – e.g., not doing home repairs as soon as discovered b/c of expense
  • searching for bargains in food prices–single women don’t normally have time for that but need now to consider everything
  • eating out less often or not at all
  • going out less often or not at all – single moms especially–going out is doubly expensive b/c of babysitting
  • considering bankruptcy
  • hanging onto less than desirable jobs b/c no others available

What else are you doing that’s different?
