    I don't even bargain shop anymore, and I'm only going to buy 3 handbags in 2009- I'm trying to be VERY careful.

    Shopping not only change my shopping habit.. it changes the store return policy too.. at nordstrom before you can return it anytime even without a receipt and they dont really be rude about it. now they want receipt, credit, card, the UPC, they ruder if one things were missing.. it crazy
    I'm so like you!! Since we're returning home later this year, DH has to find a new job( he quit his when we came here for my studies and currently doing online work) and even though I'll be promoted once I've done my specialisation, it is definitely smarter to save

    The financial crisis of which is now spreading to the four corners of our world is just the tip of the iceberg...what will take place in the following months from now will shake everything... even those we thought that cannot be shaken....

    Be prepared, be on guard, be wise....no one is safe, everyone stands vulnerable to this calamity that is fast approaching us....

    Get out of debt. You cannot outrun this tsunami of economic crisis if you are bound to debts....


    Time to change our lifestyle...put a slamming brake to all extravagance and excessive indulgence...now is the time to learn living simply and within our means...


    Save...save...save...it's not a rainy day that is coming but a storm which the world has never experience before...save every cent and every penny...


    and most of all...


    It's time to bend our knees and pray...to draw near to God who is our only HOPE, PROTECTOR and PROVIDER....


    Dear friends, listen...it is coming...be warned, be prepared.....

    Coming from the mouth of Business major:

    It's not THAT bad, no one needs to freak out like that. Of course, you can't blow as much money on things you don't need but you don't need to freak. Your grandparents (or great-grandparents) lived through the Great Depression (or you wouldn't be here ) and this isn't going to get as bad as the Great Depression. In the economic cycle, we go through phases like this. Yes, that is how the wealthy get super wealthy by buying stocks at times like this but that just goes to prove, we will come out of this. Everyone just needs to make good decisions at this time, and attempt to be self-sufficient.

    You know the real thing freaking me? People begging Obama for bailouts. That comes out of your pocket, like the American car companies, and other companies. If that money doesn't come out of your pocket, the FED creates more money. Does anyone know what happens when the FED creates more? It depreciates the dollar, which means it makes it worth less. Currently, the American dollar is worth less than Canada's equivalent.

    That's why I talk about self-sufficiency.


    Girls and guy, that's why I say everyone just needs to be a responsible at times like this and we will pull through. No one needs to freak out, I promise.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?

    I am surprised that no body have mention buying more pre-owned things since.

    I definitely have more new clients buying from me since the recession.

    Um.. that's AMAZING. I go into Century 21 every time I'm in NY and I can never find anything. Is it true it's best to get there as soon as it opens???

    I've still been shopping non-stop but I do look for sales... but I have stopped buying every single heel I see that is adorable. I use to buy on average... 3-4 pairs of heels a week (SM or MK)... now.. I can't even tell you the last time I bought a pair of heels.

    Thanks WM for the heads up-- I am not buying as much as before the economy got really poor, but I am buying when I find the right deal for me !! I do think that people like myself (safely employed for the time being ) do need to HELP OUT THE ECONOMY by buying things =keeping stores open and people in jobs !!

    Definitely need to show DH this post
    I've actually gotten emails from my boss back home asking if I'm coming back on schedule as they have already planned my teaching calendar for year 2010
    Since I'm in the medical field and work for the govt, the jobs in this field is the safest there is back home. Even during the terrible 1990's Asian recession where my country really suffered through(the current recession so far is no where near as bad as the 1990's), doctors were (and still are) in short supply so jobs were practically waiting for us.
    I'm just shopping on sales and preloved items that my family and I need but yep trying to do my bit while I still can
    Once I go back home, where there's little preloved designer goods on offer, no sample sales and not many 70% and above discounts during sales, I definitely won't be shopping as much.

    I don't buy just because something is on sale. I buy what I need.

    Well it's depends on your own makeup skills if you can do makeup/wear makeup nicely then you can do it for yourself and you can save the cash totally that you're gonna spend for hiring a professional but it's not work always especially for a big day.

    I spend a lot less on clothes and shoes. Whereas before I could spend on everything, I now spend primarily on bags, jeans and cosmetics. I scour Winners and Marshall's a lot and got some really good deals, whereas I rarely did before.
