Is the credit crunch biting?

Post by jdanddiet » Mon Oct 20, 2008 5:53 am

Everyone seems to be selling stuff!

Or is this always the case?

If so perhaps it's about time for a trade/selling forum...

Maybe it's because the silly season is nearly upon us and ppl are after a bit of surplus cash...

I got a lekky bill in yesterday, telling me my monthly Direct debit is going down by £25, as I've been paying to much...

Hows that for credit crunch :)

Similar thing here. They aren't reducing my bill but both gas and Elec are a couple of hundred quid in credit which should offset the extra winter usage nicely.

Credit Crunch has got me by the balls,

I've had to sell off at least half my collection of consoles & games in the past couple of months to keep up with various bills and fuel for the car, next up is my music collection. :x

and I'm moving to a smaller place as the rent went up along with the utilities where i currently am.

Nope, but will tell you when the next electricity bill arrives. The last one was obscene and that was before all this mess.

I've not noticed a difference at all, in fact with petrol is back to reasonable prices things are looking better financially, at least for me. heh

Apart from someone keying the side of my car and a bit of damp near our window in the spare bedroom, things (touch wood) havent been bad.

Petrols getting cheaper, had no signs of the credit crunch personally. Things will turn around in the near future and it'll all be good.

Fuel costs coming down should benefit everyone. Anything that's imported, exported, or generally transported or distributed by land sea or air (so pretty much everything) should also see the benefit of lower distribution costs.

I know its saving our company £££££'s every month.
