About this page


Welcome to Everyday Economy, a new weekly feature of The Spokesman-Review. On this page, we’ll bring you stories and information about the ways that today’s volatile economy plays out in the daily lives of our region’s residents. That means you’ll find a lot of tips for your household budget – such as today’s comparison between the cost of school lunch versus brown-bagging. We’ll also have stories from the region’s residents about the ways they’re adjusting to tight times, and information from all over on the themes of savings, frugality and money.

We’d like to hear your ideas and reactions to this page; contact Shawn Vestal at (509) 459-5431 or
