Its recession, its global slowdown, dont you think it matters much as the money needs to be cautiously spent nowadays rather than earlier, when employement was not so difficult to acess. Are you extra careful about your spendings?

Im careful but not that extra careful.LOL I just love to spend on food and snacks so I really cannot help myself in those kind of spending. Im currently still a student so I do get some allowance. But I also have the awareness that I want to help my parents with the finances and not be that much of a burden anymore. That's why Im trying to earn some online for my extra spending. I dont want to put my extravagances and luxuries still on my parents' tab, when its my 'wants'. I prefer to be able to pay for my 'wants' with my own earnings and to help a bit with the other school fees with a part of my online earnings. I guess its a good thing that I dont have that much and that many 'wants'. I just love food and that would be it.LOL

Having been a single parent on a low income for a while now, I have always had to be careful with what I spend, but I have found that I have been extra careful lately. I am lucky that, as a nurse, I will always be able to find work, but I think that the wealth that the government here in britain is squandering should be better distributed in these credit crunch times.
