Get help – not a hire
When you’re tight on money, it’s time to rely on your community and maybe call on some favors. Look for help instead of a hire when you need a babysitter, ride somewhere, help moving, the possibilities are endless. Don’t be shy about asking friends, family or neighbors for assistance. The cash we pay people to do things that our friends can assist with really adds up. You’ve probably been there for these friends, family, and neighbors over the years and they’d likely be glad to help you out. Everyone understands money is tight right now.
