I know that since the floor fell out in 2008 and things are costing everyone more, I have actually increased my charitable donations year round. Bob and I live modestly, so they are not big donations, but there are a lot of local charities and non-profits that need help and will be lucky if they make it.
It could be as simple as looking though your closet at clothes you haven't worn for a few years, maybe admitting you will never fit into them again

The petro link is the gas station prints. Benefiting a local historical society and these forums.
If you want to get some good information about your local gas stations, these are the place to go. This local historical society had gas station pictures but even if the secretary kind of gives you a blank stare, ask to meet some of the older members who will have remembered the stations. You may also meet someone as I did that remembers the station from the 20's or 30's. These folks are leaving us quickly so do it sooner than later.
