I mean literally take control of your life. Yes bad things are going on in our economy, but let's face it no one is going to bail you out but you. So TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK.
Sit down and take a look at your family, finances and the way you live everyday.
Get rid of things that costs you money that you really don't need ( if you can not decide what those are think back 10 years ago what luxury items did you not have then well I am sure today you still don't need them so get rid of them).
Right now needs out weigh wants. Make sure the entire family is part of the costs saving actions, it could be a little as a smaller child making sure all the lights are turned off when no one is in a room.
