Economic Recession, Tips to Deal with It (part 2 of 2)


3. Avoid wastage
This is actually one component of saving up. When you save, you make sure that everything that you have bought have been used and have not been wasted. You can start on the dinner table by asking your kids to clean their plates when eating. That way, they will know that they will be forced to eat whatever they got but cannot eat. Alongside this edict, tell them they can get a second helping should they want another but still, they have to clean their plates. No leftovers.

4. Get your family to help
Dealing with economic recession and making sure that the family survives is the responsibility of every member of the family. Even in their own way, your kids can help out by making sure that they are not wasting food or not wasting electricity or water which contributes a lot in the overall household expense monthly. They can do this by making sure that everything is shut off when they leave the room. TVs should not be left open when there is no one watching. Same goes with airconditioning unit and heaters.

5. Get your neighbors to help
You are not the only one feeling the pressure brought on by economic recession. A lot of families in the United States are also scrimping right now just to make both ends meet. Join hands with them and work together. For instance, you can all save gas by getting your kids to school in a car pool. You can all take turns on the wheel. This will also free you to do other things like maybe work part time to supplement the family income.
