Managing in Tough Times

To help families struggling to make ends meet, the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences has published a new bottom-line guide to personal finances called Managing in Tough Times. The 40-page booklet includes ideas on prioritizing debts and handling them more efficiently, saving money on basic needs, and finding overlooked sources of income.

I just stumbled upon the information today while looking up an ag source for a story on fertilizer I'm writing. No shit, a story on fertilizer. *rub down the goosebumps* I know my life as a writer is glamorous as hell. Regardless, I just looked it over briefly, but I think it could be a great help to many people who are scraping by like the rest of us.

Prayers help, too. But, Jesus helps those who help themselves, I've been told and I find it a pretty good life motto. So, go give it a read and pass the link on to others who can use it.
