I read an article called The upside to the down economy on Monday and it talks about businesses that are profiting in this down economy. Jim Cramer had a saying, "There's always a bull market somewhere.", and this is the bull market for repair shops, used clothing stores, fast-food restaurants and Web sites. This proves that there is an upside to the down economy. Too bad I can't say the same thing for Jim Cramer.
This article reminded me of a post I wrote some time back about Healthier Eating with Fast Food. Since so many people are eating fast food now, perhaps you can find ways to eat healthier, even with fast food. I try to limit fast food to once or twice a week, but when I do eat it, I try to eat smaller portions. Not to mention I drink more Water rather than soda.
I think those who are willing to work and don't mind getting their hands wet, will come out of this better off. Now is the perfect chance to do those things you've always wanted to do, but never had the time for. I've taken it upon myself to take photos daily, something I find I enjoy doing, as I mentioned in my Frugal Kaizen blog.
What about you? Are you shopping at used clothing stores? Eating at fast food restaurants more often? Getting things repaired instead of buying a replacement?
