The economy has not been so hot lately. Gas prices are still high, the stock market is going up and down, real estate is still dropping and the government is trying to figure out what to do with all these big companies that are flopping. Right now is a time where you should really watch what you are spending. Eat at home more, see where you can cut out some costs on luxury items and really tighten up the wallet because things could get worse. In the end I am sure things will get better, but when I have no clue.
