Hello! In India the financial crisis has not made its impact on the purchasing power of the people.Of course we do feel sometimes the cost of some commodities were in the rise but the same have come down in the mean time.However we are watchful over the matter and reduce consumption of such items which cost more.thanx.

Yeah I know cost cutting can be really crazy sometimes. And the crisis we're on makes it even crazier because we are being pressured to do more cost cutting. The easiest thing to just do without is the frequent trips to the mall, cinema, restaurants. I just lessened them not completely stop doing them altogether. LoL. And I'm into bargain hunting too. I'm doing a pretty good job at it. I'm not much of spender on things, but I do spend quite a lot on food items. I just love to eat. And of course, it's always cheaper to eat at home.

I have reduced my phone bill by including it on my Internet account. I go shopping for food less than I used to. It is winter but I am not having my central heating on all day. I am not going out for many days like I will want to do so in the summer months. Good luck with your budgeting.

I began to watch my phone bill as early as three years ago. I used to carry two cellphones and got cellphone numbers. Gradually, i realized it was worthless to spend that much on phone calls and phone bills so i cut off unnecessary phone talk, cut them short. One recent cut for me is the taxi fee. I try to remind myself that walk faster to save 2 minutes ( i normally be late for 2 to 5 minuts, therefore i taxi a lot ). I skip my makeup time in the morning so that i don't need to call a cab 4 times on workday mornings a week. Another change is that i suddenly lose my strong interest in shopping. I used to shop every week, never back home empty-handed. Mainly clothing. Now, i don't go shopping for a month ! which is really a miracle to me. Thanks to mylot, i would rather hurry back home writing some posts and spending my earnings online than wandering in shopping mall for hours. Gee, i turn my shopping attention to online shopping.
