From spending to saving, people today are now beginning to count every cent they have, earn, save, and spend in order to make sure that they are getting by day-by-day.

Yet, the future is something that is never clear or knowing to anyone especially in this day and age.

Many individuals today have to deal with the loss of their employment, or maybe having to deal with a cut in pay, but either way everyone is feeling the recession in one way, shape, or form.
