Recently release government data shows that more people filed claims for unemployment benefits than anytime in the last 16 years.‚  Once again, I strongly recommend that anyone who reads my blog gets LEAN.‚  How can you get lean?‚  Cut all frivolous expenses out of your life and start saving.‚  Washington state has not yet been hit by the bad economic waves hitting the rest of the country, but I promise you it will get much worse in our region.‚  I recommend holding off on buying a house for another year if you can.‚  If you are renting, move to a cheaper place.‚  Do NOT lease anything (car, television) other than real estate.‚  Eliminate any outstanding credit card debt fast.‚  Don’t go out to dinner/bars as much. Be smart.
