If you can, grow food in the backyard – or in containers.
If you have a small convection oven, use that instead of your larger oven.

Try to live on less than you earn. If you can’t do that, you’ll be paying off debt all your life. But now in these current difficult times, with high interest rates, unemployment, increasing food and fuel prices, there ARE things you can do to reduce your expenses. This won’t last forever but it will last a few years. So if you start helping yourself, following a budget and reducing costs, you’ll come out of it in reasonable shape, and hopefully still living in your own home. How are you tackling this problem, please share what you’re doing and we might all learn something. I wish you all the best of luck, Now, let’s get to work and start reducing our expenses.
