When the economy is in the middle of a major recession, panic is quick to set in. The necessities, such as gas and food staples, begin to peak at prices that our lingering salaries suddenly can’t afford to cover. While most families are trying to get through paycheck to paycheck, and are turning to credit cards and loans to get through the week, you may think that saving money is a laughable ideal. In reality, with some forethought and creative planning, you can not only survive a recession, but save money at the same time.
First things first: determine your necessities. The most important bills are the ones that need to get paid in order for you to survive. The mortgage, the electric bill, and the rest of your utilities all fall under this category. Your grocery shopping is also an obvious necessity, but there are ways to cut back on your grocery spending. Everything else, including your cell phone, can probably stand to be cut back, if not turned off entirely while you wait out the crunch.
Next, focusing on conserving in every aspect can help you whittle down your monthly bills. Most of us are guilty of leaving our electronics running day and night. Computers, video game systems, and a television going in every room of the house – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While unplugging every single electronic appliance in your home is dually unnecessary and annoyingly burdensome, powering down the major appliances like your computer, when it’s not in use, can help you save a few hundred on your electric bill.
Grocery shopping is another budget breaker for many families, especially if you have some big eaters on your hands. One easy way to cut down on the unnecessary grocery spending is by eating before heading out to the grocery store. Shopping on an empty stomach results in shoppers spending 50% over what they had planned to spend, because they start seeing junk foods that they want to eat as soon as they get home. Make your list, and plan your budget accordingly to give room for a few extras that you may have forgotten to add to your list. Clipping coupons and signing up for the free grocery store savings club will also help you keep costs down.
Cutting back on your driving can also help, especially with petrol prices that have remained high. While you’ll obviously need to get back and forth to work, other trips to complete errands can be lumped together in order to keep gas use at a minimum. Instead of squeezing your shopping in during your lunch breaks, save all of your shopping trips for one day on the weekend. Hit the stores you need to shop at in order of where they are located, so that you don’t need to drive all over creation. You can even turn to the internet to purchase some of your typical monthly necessities, which can save you money both through discounts and through shipping. Most online companies charge significantly less for shipping than it would cost you in gas to buy the item yourself at the store.
Saint Patrick – was a Romano-Briton and Christian missionary, who is the most generally recognized patron saint of Ireland or the Apostle of Ireland, although Brigid of Kildare and Colmcille are also formally patron saints.
Two authentic letters from him survive, from which come the only universally accepted details of his life. When he was about 16, he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island, but little is known about the places where he worked. By the seventh century, he had come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland.
Most available details of his life are from later hagiographies from the seventh century onwards, and these are now not accepted without detailed criticism. Uncritical acceptance of the Annals of Ulster would imply that he lived from 340 to 440, and ministered in what is modern day Northern Ireland from 428 onwards. The dates of Patrick’s life cannot be fixed with certainty, but on a widespread interpretation he was active as a missionary in Ireland during the second half of the 5th century.
Saint Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17, the date of Patrick’s death. It is celebrated both in and outside of Ireland, as both a liturgical and non-liturgical holiday. In the dioceses of Ireland it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation and outside of Ireland, it can be a celebration of Ireland itself.
St. Patrick banishes all snakes from Ireland
Pious legend credits St. Patrick with banishing snakes from the island, chasing them into the sea after they assailed him during a 40-day fast he was undertaking on top of a hill. This hagiographic theme draws on the mythography of the staff of Moses, messenger of Yahweh to gentile Egyptians. In Exodus 7:8–7:13 , Moses and Aaron use their staffs in their struggle with Pharaoh’s sorcerers, the staffs of each side morphing into snakes. Aaron’s snake-staff prevails.
However, all evidence suggests that post-glacial Ireland never had snakes, as on insular “Ireland, New Zealand, Iceland, Greenland, and Antarctica…So far, no serpent has successfully migrated across the open ocean to a new terrestrial home” such as from Scotland on the mainland of the neighboring island of Britain, where a few native species have lived, “the venomous adder, the grass snake, and the smooth snake,” as National Geographic notes, and although sea snake species separately exist. “At no time has there ever been any suggestion of snakes in Ireland, so [there was] nothing for St. Patrick to banish,” says naturalist Nigel Monaghan, keeper of natural history at the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin, who has searched extensively through Irish fossil collections and records.
The only biological candidate species for appearing like a native snake in Ireland is the slow worm, actually a legless lizard, a non-native species more recently found in The Burren region of County Clare as recorded since the early 1970s, as noted by the National Parks and Wildlife Service of Ireland, which suspects it was deliberately introduced in the 1960s. So far, the slow worm’s territory in the wild has not spread beyond the Burren’s limestone region which is rich in wildlife.
One suggestion is that snakes referred to the serpent symbolism of the Druids during that time and place, as exampled on coins minted in Gaul. Chris Weigant connects “Big tattoos of snakes” on Druids’ arms as “Irish schoolchildren are taught” with the way in which, in the legend of St. Patrick banishishing snakes, the “story goes to the core of Patrick’s sainthood and his core mission in Ireland.”
