Web We may not be getting ready for bread lines or seeing hobos selling apples for five cents on the corner, but all this talk of another Great Depression should have us looking back in history for lessons that we can take with us into the future of this wild and woolly economic mess.

Here are some ideas that we can learn from the grandparents and great grandparents who lived through the lean times.
1. Patch it, sew it, fix it yourself
2. Don’t use credit
3. Saving up
4. Forget the Joneses
5. Can it (or at least brown-bag it)
6. Any job will do
7. Help a brother out
