Rising of living cost

New Zealand

I am quietly getting worried about the increase in living cost. Every week I get diesel it seems to increase (almost NZ$2 per litre), the cost of staple foods (butter, milk and cheese) have gone through the roof here in New Zealand (the farmers are happy) We are building and at the moment I am not employed, looking after our 2 young boys. No wonder sooo many people are wanting to earn extra money from home, I am always looking for something I could do from home but not very trusting of all the internet things that are out there. Not sure if I have pretended this is not happening just really hit me doing our groceries this morning scary stuff. How is this effecting you and your families?

I hear you about the raising cost of things! I had to redo our budget just because of rising fuel prices. But it made me become some creative and made look for more options. I have found the following things that helps: -shopping at second hand clothing stores -a church program that sells food cheap as part of their ministry -time to do more online webcash program like Mylot (I do several programs and have earmarked them for a particular mission like getting new clothes, investing in the stock market, etc) -joining a warehouse club to buy things cheaper -getting books from libraries instead of buying them I do have a new program that I am testing it out but it looks like it could make some cash in it. It is open to anyone one in the world and you can make money without 'recruiting' other people. If you would like some info let me know and I will pass it along to you to see what you think.

Looking 4ward to start to grow our own vegies being more conciously aware of where your $ goes and really thinking twice when spending. Yeah let me know about your programme love to have a look at it and check it out - cheers E
