Has this economy continued to hurt your wallet, or are you doing just fine?

I was thinking about this as I came to work today and was greeted with not a lot of work for a monday. We do work for a lot of different people/businesses and we have seen slow downs in every industry. We usually stay busy year round, but there are times where it's feast or famine that's for sure.

Personally speaking my money is held pretty firmly, we are currently paying off as much debt as possible before we get a house. This economy definitely has impacted me though. I used to reach my bonus almost every week, but now I rarely reach my bonus which sucks, but being employed is enough to keep me content. I know some of you guys in here are in pretty solid industries, but those who are not, does the economy continue to hurt you financially?

You had to know that was coming though, right? I mean its not like that was a surprise.

Me, I'm doing pretty well, but it hasn't kept up with the capital outlay or the ****ing stress I'm under. That has increased much more than my net income.

My wife's job (catholic school) dumped their insurance so that's a hefty sum every month. Taxes are an ever looming problem of which I shouldn't be too bad but I'm epic boned next year.

And really most of my business improvement is contingent on a couple decisions I made with some prompting from my dad. I made some decent decisions outside of that, but most of the bump is from his prompting. If I'd have stayed the same as last year I'd be crying like a bitch.

But like most business owners, I see the missed opportunities and the things I could have done better.

Getting by, but it has been increasingly tough since Motorola went to China in 2000.

Traveling expenses between and cost of maintaining two houses is more than I figured.

Fortunately we have Yorkies, so they don't eat that much.

He is a good person, doesn't start shit with no one. Nothing wrong with his threads. No reason to be a dick and call him names.

That's who I thought it was. I was pretty good friends with that guy. He told me some things about his life, and I tried to give him some advice here and there when he asked. I PM'd this guy because I'm almost positive it's the same dude, but he didn't ever respond, and I haven't bothered digging it up. I don't agree with all of his takes on politics and what not, but he's a good guy. I'm down with El Jefe.

I hate going groc. shopping. Cannot buy enough on 150 bucks to make it last, does not fill up the grocery cart like it use too.


I'd like to do what they do on extreme shopping with coupons. How do they do it? They can buy 300 to 400 dollars worth of stuff and spend $13.00 for it all some times even getting a refund
