For more than a year now, we've been hearing about layoffs and bankruptcies and stimulus plans.
Maybe you've survived job cuts at your place of employment; maybe you haven't.
With so much focus on the corporate side of the sour economy, what sometimes get left behind are the more personal stories.
What about you? What are you doing to get by? Have you been laid off? Maybe you haven't but your spouse or another loved one has?
Are you packing lunch instead of buying? Are you taking the train instead of a cab? Shoot, maybe you're walking to work.
What other changes have you made in your routine? We want to hear how you're spending less. Please let us know by leaving a comment below this story.
