…what would you give up?
Here’s the reality: Let’s get hypothetical. (How’s that for a paradox?)
I would like to start a discussion on what you would do if your income was drastically slashed. This is not as far fetched as one might believe. It’s happening all over the world as we speak. So what would you give up? You’re currently living in your own house(I assume). Would you downsize? What about your utilities? Would you become more vigilant about turning off lights and spending more than 5 minutes in the shower?
Or what about the luxuries? Would you get rid of cell-phones, internet, cable/satellite?
Then there’s holidays. We don’t spend a lot on vacations but we’ve certainly spent more in the past 2 years than we ever have. Would you give up your annual Cuba or Mexico vacation? Would you look for discount hotels instead of the 4 or 5 star you’ve been used to?
What about eating out? How often a week do you eat out and what amount do you spend? Would you get rid of that luxury all together?
So, let’s get real. What are you willing to give up?
