putting off buying that newer car and sinking a couple thousand into keeping the clunkers you have running for a while longer instead.
shopping at consignment and thrift stores instead of chain and consignment stores.
switching back to conventional foods and products in place of the expensive but better for you organic versions.
wearing more sweaters and keeping the heater set at 60 instead of 70.
wondering if you made a mistake moving to the big new place that you love that is also more expensive.
having to make an extra effort to communicate with one another and not trying to hide emotions because keeping a positive attitude sometimes comes off as not caring.
putting your dreams and goals on hold, again.
