How has the recession affected you?

I honestly dont think i have ever felt this low or ****ty before!!! it sucks not to have an extra bob at the end of the week to buy a treat. with 3 kids its so hard not to feel depressed and lonely! a simple trip to town is now a no no as the funds are'nt there to buy them something small even. the saying "no mon no fun" has never been a more true saying! we now rely on hand me downs for clothes, days out are to the playground but only when the weather permits! everything sucks right now!!

Ah come on now let's be reasonable here.

Now, she may not be a which. However, if she weighs the same as a duck she is then made of wood and is therefore a witch! Anyone got a duck handy?

Yeah it has effected me, my lifestyle took a tumble and I have to watch my pennies. But I am just as happy/unhappy as I was in the boom, so material wise it has effected me, but happiness fulfillment wise I am no different.

well I have less money at the end of the month but thats due to living alone at the mo, need to move somewhere cheaper soon, waiting to hear back on a new job so if I get that will be moving, its kinda a catch 22, I can either stay where I am and pay crazy rent but I cant afford the new rent and deposit to move in somewhere alone again, dont want to live with randomers though, too many crazy people and I like my own space.

You could try taking them to town without buying them anything. They'll probably survive.

Personally I've never been as well off financially as I am at the moment, but my spending habits have never changed.
