About Small Change
The recession has touched all of our lives in both dramatic and subtle ways. Some have lost their jobs, suffered pay cuts or lost their homes. Others, the lucky ones, have been relatively unscathed but have felt it prudent to cut out the daily trip to Starbucks —and that has set off a chain reaction that has implications of its own, with store closings, job losses and diminished prospects.
Small Change provides advice and commiseration, a bit of bucking up (and even an idea to save a buck) as we all adjust to the new economic reality. Need to haggle? Craving a bargain? Furious about your credit card fees? We are so here for you.
Tell us of your wants, your needs, your victories, your disappointments. In return, we’ll be scouring the blogosphere--and cross-examining the cleverest of our friends--to keep you recession-fighting trim. Your guides are Ylan Mui, retail reporter at The Washington Post and newly reformed shopaholic, and Nancy Trejos, The Post’s personal finance reporter who is working on a book about recovering from her own financial calamities.
We certainly aren't perfect, and we believe in having fun as well as being frugal. But it's amazing what a difference you can make in your life with just a few small changes.
