What impact has the sinking economy had on your daily life?

Are you shopping differently?

Are you working more?

Or, have you barely noticed it at all?

I am definitely working a lot more. And it causes a bit of relationship strain.

Where I live most of us are in the same boat, one false move and we are going to capsize. Those that claim they barely noticed it at all around here are in denial.

Working more and earning less has become common place. At least we have been getting some rain, makes the grass grow. lol Hopefully the economy will stabilize and gradually calm the waves that have been smashing our little dingy.

I'm trying to relocate (from New York to North Carolina) and I'm noticing that firms want to pay less for more experience. It's not as easy getting a job now as it was 10 years ago.

I am definitely working a lot more as always. I don't think you should be wasting a lot of time specially during these times. And I agree that it is not that easy to find a job anymore.

Definitely working more for less. However, I'm comfortably hedged on all sides from years of planning for the worst economic situation possible. Sometimes it literally pays to be a neurotic.

Work in building remains slow....fuel costs, advertising etc have a greater impact with less money coming in.

Work in general needs to pick up.

My wallet feels lighter.

This morning I took my last 100 dollar bill and exchanged it for Philippine pesos.

$1 = 40 pesos.

I sadly took my 4,000 pesos and put them safely away into my wallet.

I still remember years ago when it took 58 pesos to make a dollar. Now the peso is so much stronger.

I tried exchanging my 5 euros after that but they didn't accept euros. Only dollars.

Fix your currency yanks! Or I'll be eating white rice and sea urchins!

heh, it impacted me more than I thought of. It was the excuse for my engineering job layoff then I got into foreclosure (but luckily still in the house waiting...), and finally made me turn into the internet to generate some income. The last recession that is still going on in my opinion impacted so many lives one of which sitting here...

It didn't affect me at all, think you have to be higher up the financial ladder to get the full sting

I totally agree with that. It's a super tough job market right now. Part of why I am supplementing my income with affliate marketing.

Figure I oughta agree with you when given the chance.

Lotta folks in the same boat, and it's rapidly starting to look more like a submarine. Thinking of taking up bank robbery. I figure if it works I can afford food / housing / gas, and if it doesn't the government will pay for the first two and I won't need the third. How can I lose?

So true. I went out last week to try to take a few framing pictures and almost never found a site where some one was building something. I don't think I ever recall the construction industry being this hard hit for this long.

I suppose I've had to 'migrate' my physical business online to try and avoid any local economic downturn and aim for a much broader, less 'financially inhibited' market...

In 2007 I lost almost all of the accumulated fortune I had - several thousand dollaz, not a big deal but it was a really unpleasant experience. Since then, I have started to rebuilt it again, but it's a hard process. This is how I began with IM... So, a good experience in the end...

The economical conditions today has changed many things around us. I don't care where it takes us.. the only precious thing I've lost is the peace of mind! No time at all, to relax and reflect.
