Coping with Hard Times

Across the whole world, people are finding that times are hard.

Economic mismanagement by bankers and politicians have put us all into an economic recession, where jobs and money are in short supply.

This wiki will gather together 1001 tips and tricks for living on a low budget.

Many of the suggestions have come from a community of people who have CHOSEN to live simply, out of concern for the planet (high living has a bigger impact on our environment) or out of disgust at the crass materialism of consumerism.

Many visitors have sadly been forced into this position through unemployment redundancy and retirement.

Losing a job is never easy.

  • we lose structure to our time
  • we lose contact with other people
  • we may feel insecure, depressed and angry
  • we may (wrongly) feel ashamed at being unemployed
