    Do you think recession has kind of devoured us? It has spread like a wildfire. And perhaps one of the most pressing problems is debts. How to fight them? Let me know your views and ask a question if you are racking your brains.......

      The traditional method of dealing with dementors is to conjure up a Patronus, but in the absence of a magic wand, I guess work hard, budget carefully, and live as frugally as possible is probably the more logical way forward!

    i think the one good thing about the recession is because it is hitting everyone people tend to be a bit more understanding...... I am now back at work and have been taught one huge lesson.... don't spend my money that i have not really got... as it is so hard to get straight once you do get into debt...

      That's exactly what the economy has been based on for the last ten or fifteen years. The good old 'gimmes'! LOL! But when we make ourselves sick in the sweetie store, we all know what happens next, and that's how we learn. It's a tough old lesson when it's your home and your health at stake though.
