I do not know about all you guys but I know we have had to cut back alot in spending and going places because are gas bill is just so much money a month.My husband has to drive 40 minutes to work and 40 minutes back every day so he eats gas in his dailey travels.I also started a garden to help cut on food costs.I know we haven`t been out to eat in a while and were trying to pay off bills so we don`t have so much a month to pay out so we can have some extra money to spend.How about you?

We significantly cut down on driving. We have to take a minivan to get our entire family anywhere. We just do the bare minimum. We also cut corners wherever else we can. Just like you, eating out less but also finding cheaper recipes for meals made at home. Things like that...
