"Getting By" Going Bye-Bye 

Published December 17, 2009 at 4:50 p.m.

This week, I'm working on the final "Getting By" column, and I need your help! Read on.

We launched "Getting By," a column devoted to exploring how Vermonters are surviving the recession, last December. Over the past 12 months, we've asked Vermonters to share money-saving strategies, we asked a mechanic to tell us how to get the most mileage out of our aging cars, we've talked with a retiree from Montpelier who explains how she saved her way to financial independence, we explained how to swap houses with someone to save on vacation costs and we listed resources to help you — and your kids — learn how to manage money. In the latest installment, our food editor offered tips to get the most of our your Thanksgiving turkey leftovers.

But though the recession's not over, "Getting By" is. I'm working on the final column this week. I'd like to do a year-end wrap-up describing how Vermonters have gotten by this year, which is why I need your help.

I want to know — no, Seven Days readers want to know! — how did you get by this year? Did the recession impact your life? How? Did you change your lifestyle? Did you change your habits? Did you learn anything from "Getting By" that you put into practice in your own life?

Please share your comments here, or email them to me, by Saturday, at cathy@sevendaysvt.com. Thanks for reading!
