Hi, I am new to the list but not to tightening my budget.I have no experience
with the tax assessed on street aprovement. But I believe my parents wentthrough something similar.No one in there neighborhood could afford to pay. the
city worked it out with the homeowners to make payments & reduced the
amount.There were some homeowners who were very loud, an they are probably thereason that the amount got reduced.I also remeber my parents were talking to the
city about there porch foundation cracking because of construction
on another street.If you had damage its possible other neighbors had damage,there is strength in numbers,
but you will have to find out if there others.I am a big believer in coupons &
refunding.I have lived in areas werethe shopping was not good so I traded for forms & sold my coupons.I have people
save there baby formula coupon & ciggy coupons as well as other coupon & sell
them.I have coupon friends who buy items that are free with coupons &
then have a garage sale every 6
months.I have never done that as I use are donate all I get. Alot of people aregood at selling on ebay.What
kind of crafts do you do?I have lived in several cities that have stores that
allow you to rent a shelf in there store to sell your items, they collect themoney for you & pay you what is sold.What about classes do you have room to hold
any kind of classes & teach your hobby to others? I homeschool & a local women
teachesart to the homeschoolers & she makes major money. She teaches 2 saturdays a
month 3 classes a day.
I also live in an area that does not have alot of homeschoolers.Do you bake aresew?
Honestly it sounds like you are ahead of the game & have control over most
everything you can.You cant really do anything about lay-offs just have a backup plan which you are working on. The only other
thing is stock piling when you can.Do you have a freezer? Do you can are freeze
etc? Please keepus posted. I hope i havent said any thing to offend anyone just trying to help
