The recession has hit me hard

Paycheck from the part-time job is down about 70%. I am still hanging in there till the spring to see if it improves.

I am coping by eating breakfast and lunch at home, driving less and forgoing non essential purchases.

Good luck with all that. I've taken to eating more meals at home too.

same here. eating at home, buying dried beans and much less meat, no more coffee from coffee shops.

freelance income is down a ton. everyone's tightening their belt and the freelancers are the first people to go.

stay strong. we can all make it through this together.
