Recession is indeed a bleak and troubling time for us all.
My only advice would be dance on the beach wearing a fifties style suit. I can’t say it will help much and if you are not so lucky as to live on the coast, it may actually deplete your funds further in terms of the cost of getting there.
Still, I think the sense of freedom would be more than worth it.
Walking past Waterloo this morning, I did note a large, leather glad woman who had clearly strayed outside of the social guidelines and was engaged in a strange, jabbering dance on the pavement.
This is NOT a substitute.
Get a suit on, find a beach, do it right.
