Once the Great Depression had started, many people's lives changed. People could no longer take things for granted, and daily lifestyles had to change... Here are some of the changes that were made in people's everyday lives.
People had to make compromises because they could no longer afford things. The Bennett Buggy was created since people could no longer afford gas, so people would hitch their horses onto their car to get around.
Giddy up! Yee Haw!
When possible, people produced their own food.
We're going to have a lot to eat tonight!
Nearly everyone became frugal, and only bought the things they absolutely needed to live.
Mommy can I get a new doll?!
No, sorry honey, we don't have enough for that right now...
People found new ways to make perishable items last longer.
What're you doing Mommy?
I'm diluting the milk with water, it makes it last longer.
People were all in the same situation, so whenever they could they'd help each other out.
Hey, if you have any food you to spare, I can give you medicine in return!
Yeah, I'll give you a call on my horn when I'm ready to trade.
