Surviving The Recession

What are you doing to make it through these tough economic times? Do you have any tips to help others?

What are you doing to make it through these tough economic times?  Do you have any tips to help others?

Many people I talk with across eastern Carolina are feeling the impact of the recession.  But they're also doing something about it.

One man I recently talked with says he stopped using credit cards awhile ago and buys everything with cash.  He says he used to live payday to payday.  Now he always has money left over.

So what are you doing that could help others?  I'd like to know.  You can post your comments here or email them to me at dave.jordan@witn.com.  We may consider using your tips in future stories.
