Public's Cry as G-20 Meets: 'We are Struggling'

"Pretty much holding back on buying new clothes and school supplies."

"I have cut back on leisure and recreation. I got rid of the storage units. I got rid of the massage therapist. I am doing less grocery shopping."

"We cut back on luxuries like eating out, haircuts and getting my hair dyed at the salon. I do it myself now. I have looked at my bills to see if I could do better at different companies. I canceled my gym membership."

"I hope my appliances last forever."

"I've cut back everywhere I can. I don't even tip."
