What austerity measures are you taking for the imminent double dip recession?

I'm not buying clothes for a year and currently use a Blackberry mobile phone.

Yes toasted me until I hit the bottom of my overdraft.

Down grading from Bombay Sapphire to Gordon's as it seems to be more regularly on offer. Eating out less, buying less clothes, less bottles of red wine, less coffee's at present and Milk Bar when out and about, so basically just cutting back on the every day luxury's.
