    How has the recession of 2007-2012 changed you and your family?

    What changes have you made? In career, work, play, vacations, education, home, life, love, faith, values, consumerism, personal relations, family, friends?

    It allowed me to know (in part) the meaning of compassion...I have not yet perfected it.

    Most importantly I have become more cautious while spending & have started saving more.

    The recession has educated my family and I in the values of saving and sharing.  We still always buy local, but we buy only what we need and share if we have more than we need.  If we stumble upon extra money we do not go out and spend it, we save it.  We might need it later on if times get worse.
