Tightening Our Belts is an old clich6, literally meaning we don't have enough to eat so we are losing weight and tightening our belts so our pants stay up. I'm not sure when or where that clich6 began. GOOGLE search has over 19,000 entries with lots of recent articles pertaining to tightening our belts metaphorically. As the economy continues to slow down, which is a tactful way of saying that lots of people in this country are beyond flat broke; we all have to find ways to separate needs from wants. I need to eat breakfast. I may want to buy a muffin and latte. I need to buy groceries. I want to buy them at a store in San Diego. Get the picture? Waste your money. Waste your gas. Put needless wear and tear on your vehicle. I read a few weeks ago that if you give up your morning lattes and muffins for a week, you can save enough to take your favorite person out to dinner one night. Sounds like a good idea. Paying a bill instead of buying morning muffins sounds good too. Many of my friends either own their own businesses or work in construction or landscaping of some kind. All of these people and their suppliers are hurting financially because business is way down or in some cases non-existent. I hear many financial predictions. TV, newspapers and radio stations have many experts telling us when times will get better, but none of them seem to agree. Either our country has already gotten stronger financially, or it will take several more years. Meantime we are all waiting, wondering if we will lose our jobs or our businesses. We are also wondering if we will have money to buy next weeks groceries. A week or so back; I heard an expert on the radio saying that the economy has improved by 3%. Big Whoop. When business is down by 40%, 3% up barely shows. It certainly isn't enough of a gain to pay any past due bills. Are we tightening our belts enough? I see people buying things that are unnecessary, thinking they have to have them, then not paying bills and wondering where their money went. I'(n no different. I think we should go back to our childhoods where most parents gave rewards for chores or homework that was completed. Moving this idea forward to out adult lives; we can reward ourselves with some unnecessary item or vacation after we have paid our bills, not before. I've heard some people say "1 deserve to take a vacation somewhere." Well, the people and companies that you owe money to, deserve to get paid before you pay for that vacation. The problem for many of us is that the necessaries keep piling up. Mortgages don't get paid and people walk away from their obligations. It's hard to blame people who are doing their best to be responsible people, yet not getting ahead financially. As for me; I'm struggling to pay my store rent, and my other monthly bills. This week my driver side electrically run window quit working and needs a new regulator. The estimate for replacing it is about $300.00. I don't have the money, so I'm just really glad that the wet season is over for the next few months. We can all save some money by growing our own vegetables, by shutting off unneeded lights and appliances. However, cut costs logically. Incandescent light bulbs each have a particular wattage. Using one 100 watt bulb may cost more that a smaller wattage bulb and not turning that light on at all can save money. Incandescent bulb life is dependent on how many hours the bulb is lit. On the other hand, fluorescent bulb life depends on how many times the bulb is turned on and off. Leave fluorescent bulbs on for a longer life. Turn incandescent bulbs offwhen not needed for longer life. We don't turn off our front porch light. It's a yellow fluorescent bulb that lasts over five years if we leave it on. Turning it on and off each day causes it to lasLless than two years. Electricity use for a fluorescent bulb is minimal, so we save money and have a light on when we get home each evening. Using coupons and utilizing store specials can save lots of money. Jack's grocery has a weekly Friday fish special and Don's Market has specials each week. They help us to stock up on groceries which is good for the weeks we are low on money and still need to eat. Refrigerators and freezers work more efficiently when full. Buying larger amounts of food on special, then storing it properly helps save money. I buy carrots, skin them, then cut them into bite size pieces. Blanching them.., dipping them into boiling water, then cooling them and storing them in the freezer in Ziploc bags, gives me vegetables for a long time. I take the discarded tops and skins outside, burying it into my yard so it can enrich the soil. Throwing the discards into a compost bin works too. Next year you will have good rich soil to add to your flower and vegetable beds. The same can be done with broccoli, green beans and some other vegetables. Onions and bell peppers can be cut raw and frozen in Ziplocs. Pulling a handful out as needed is a big help at dinner time. I used to can a lot of fruits, but canning can be expensive. Buying fruits and vegetables in season can save lots of money too. As our world gets less reliable in helping us to keep ourselves financially strong; we all need to do what we can as individuals to help ourselves. We may need to move to smaller less expensive houses. We may need to drive smaller, less expensive vehicles and we may need to wear last years clothes. Without resorting to illegal acts; we need to figure out what each of us can do to save money to pay bills and to be ready for financial emergencies. If we tighten our belts we can possibly see a better financial future. I hope so. These are my thoughts.
