Recessions are scary, and a lot can go wrong during them; job losses, loss of income, drop in the stock market and slowed or negative economic growth. Oh My!
freeing up credit lines will help in case of an unexpected expense when cash flow is tight. Tackling debts now will provide more breathing room later.

Don’t sell, don’t buy, just hold tight. It’s really important to take control and fight the “flight” urge.
Tracking spending, creating a budget, and cutting extra expenses can funnel money into savings and debt repayments.
