      We haven’t been feeling it as much because we don’t shop at the big box

      stores. We get our milk for $5 a gallon, but it cuts out on medical

      expenses and other health related expenses. We square foot garden, make our

      own cheese, have an herb garden (reducing medical costs), bike almost

      everywhere, and have cut back on unnecessary technologies such as extra

      phone line, bonus cable channels, as well as water and electrical usage. We

      have all our fuel for the winter ‘collected’ (wood) so this winter won’t be

      a big hit. We have learned to incorporate such things like soy, squash, and

      walnuts into our diet while watching dietary needs. We barter for services

      such as a mechanic, plumbing, and building supplies. We also use freecycle

      and craigslist often when we need something. We can, freeze, dehydrate, and

      buy in bulk from Gordon’s Food Service. They will deliver to your house

      which is a savings inofitself. This is what we have done to cut down on

      costs. Oh, I also don’t use my clothes dryer from May until October, and

      even past that we hang a lot of things during the winter. Hope this

      inspires someone. :o)
