Hello. Since my husband and I are both laid off we are doing everything together. We have been walking 3 blocks to the library and have been taking advantage of free reading and $1.00 videos. Reading different county newspapers available. Looking for jobs in and around the areas. Because we are residents we can go swimming at the community center 2 miles from us to excise or swim for $ 5.00 a day (each). We also have a discount store for Wonder Bread bakeries not to far from where we live.
We also try to do all our errands in one day. I hate to leave the house because boredom leads to shopping and spending money on things we don't need.
I also pay bills over the phone so I don't have to drive to the business in case I forgot when I was out. I am thankful gas prices are falling so that has helped us.
We also have been riding our bikes more , weather permitting.
I use coupons from the weekend newspapers to buy things that are name brand. I try to buy store brands.
We have loss our insurance so we asked our doctors to find us generic drugs that we save us money. WE asked for FREE SAMPLEs of drugs that we are on also.
Also being connected to the computer and
I am over coming the depression that comes along with being unemployed.
