TGIF Round Up: Recession anxiety edition

With all of the terrible financial news lately, it’s been getting harder and harder to stay upbeat. I’m taking all of the steps I can to ensure our financial security (we eliminated our credit card debt, we’re spending as little as we can, and we’re saving as much as possible). I also have no reason to believe that my job is in jeopardy (as far as I know, my company is doing great compared to other recession-strapped businesses).

I still can’t help but think about the worst case scenario. I guess that’s for the best. If we’re always prepared for the worst, then we’ll be prepared to weather it. I just hate this feeling of instability.

All I can do is keep on keeping on. Pay down our debt, save as much as we can, and hope for the best. I just feel like the recession anxiety hit me late, but it’s hitting hard.

On the bright side, there were a lot of great posts in the blogosphere this week! Here are my favorites:

I’m hoping to have some frugal fun this weekend to cheer myself up! I hope you do the same. Happy Friday!
