are you affected by the world-wide financial crisis ?

Do you feel the crisis in your purse ? Are you looking to earn extra money because your normal salary is not sufficient ? What ways are you using to save money ? Are you shopping in "cheaper" stores ? What's the first thing you save on ? And what would you never save on ? All those questions are invoked by the world-wide financial crisis, and I would gladly hear your opinion on them !

In some way Yes but not that really or greatly affected. That's another reason that I am not seeking a second job on top of my day job. Even before the financial crisis hits global market, I always make sure and buy things that it is worth buying not only according to its brand but to its reliability and durability as well. If we can get a cheaper piece that is of course durable then much better whether it came from a cheap store or not.

i always watched how i spent the money (well i dont have a lot of money anyway), so in this period i think i can just save less than before

i dont think it really has effetced me yet as i still live with my mam. i just pay her a flat rate for board and she does all the shopping and pays the bills. the only thing that has happened is that i was refused an overdraft at the bank. somebody suggested it could be down to the credit crunch. has it affected you much? happy mylotting
