How to Beat the High Cost of Living:
The Gulf Coast can be an exercise in thrifty living so here are a few handy hints to help you through the depression.
Broke and hungry? Go outside and shoot some food.
New clothes can be fashioned from leftover skins.
Plant a vegetable garden, compost scraps for fertilizer.
Chickens are nutritious, make swell pets, provide fresh eggs and they eat termites.
Gas prices too high? Get a goat and a cart.
Electricity too expensive? Save ear wax and make candles.
Use animal fat instead of natural gas.
Rid yourself of unwanted items while turning a profit with an endless weekend yard sale.
A block of ice and a child with a fan can dramatically reduce indoor temperatures.
While other parts of the country are plunged into turmoil over real estate and income depreciation, remember on the Gulf Coast you never saw an increase anyway.
