...... or do your shopping .... since the economy has 'almost' hit bottom The real change that I can say we, (my husband/myself), have made is eating out. We just do not do it as often as we used to. As far as shopping for groceries ... I really haven't changed much, with the exception of looking for items marked down or on sale, more now than before. But, for several years now, I have been buying things like paper product's (paper towels, tissues, foil, plastic bags, etc), at the $1.00 Store. I also get some of my cleaning supplies there, and when they have the shampoo/conditioner I like ... I stock up on it!
