Can’t spend it if you don’t have it.
Don’t even bother setting foot in malls or stores anymore, other than for food or essentials. Making do with many clothes from several seasons past. Always forced to pass up that latest new item. Don’t decorate the house anymore — can’t afford that either. It’s just pay the bills, try to pay off debts and nothing but the essentials after that. And we are a family with a six figure income. If I want the extras, I will have to get back to work, which i’m planning to do soon.
Sorry, if these bozos at the helm don’t understand how this affects regular middle classed families, then they are either stupid, or, as I suspect more than anything, are doing it purposesly to destroy us.
