A new television show premiered this past Saturday on the We network called "Downsized." It follows the Bruce family, a blended family (kids from previously marriages) who are currently struggling with their finances. The Bruce's have 7 children under the age of 18 and live in Arizona. The full details of their finance woes look to be detailed over the season, but during episode one we learned that Dad, Todd Bruce's contracting business is in bad shape, they have lost their house and vacation home to foreclosure, they have filed for bankruptcy, they are on food stamps, and are having trouble paying the rent. Wow! I would recommend you give this show at try. It is interesting to see how the kids deal with the difficult times and how the parents communicate the financial situation to them. Please see web site for more info on the show:
