I could have written this article! Fortunately my hiusband and I are very close however, I know at times it wears on both of us. Bouts of depression and unsuredness of what the future holds is not good. He is patient but it would be much easier if we were both working again.
My steps have included, staying at home or combining trips out to conserve gas.
Shopping the clearance aisles-usually did this anyways but now its a game as to how little I spend on meals and what I can find at the Dollar Stores.
Growing some of our own veggies and fruits.
Buying on sale and freezing.
Finding free or money off coupons on line.
Taking advantage of free items offered (Notre Dame game Tickets from his salesman)
We still try to do things together and out. Just now with little or no money.
Everything happens for a reason!
