Your family members can work for each other, employing each other to do for the family what others used to be paid to do, like make meals, entertain, etc.

When prepareing for a recession it is good to build up a savings account that will cover bills and general expenses you encounter in a 3 to six month period.

Start saving money whenever you can. Set a side an emergency fund. You can start a savings account but it's nice to put some cash in a safe at home. Cut back on all of the unnecessary things in your household such as take out and those expensive coffees from Starbucks. Put the money you would have spend into savings.

Pay off your debt. This guarantees a rate of return equal to the interest rate, something the stock market isn't doing lately. It also reduces the monthly outlay of debt repayment, reducing your minimum income requirements in case of unemployment. Where possible, pay off all debt. Also build up a large emergency fund of 6 months or more of income.
