      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 went

      through 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 the

      reason 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 were

      the 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 are

      good 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 the

      money 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

      teaches

      art 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 are

      sew?

      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 back

      up 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 keep

      us posted. I hope i havent said any thing to offend anyone just trying to help
