Spending less because there is less to spend shouldn't be surprising to anyone. The poor had nothing to spend to begin with while the middle class, who once had some discretionary spending opportunities, are finding the bulk of their paychecks is going towards necessities. Those who work two jobs find that time off, sleep and enjoying family activites are the goals, not buying "things". The wealthy and ultra wealthy are fairly insulated from economic trends.
We, as a society, have needed this long overdue wakeup call. We became spoiled and took so many of our blessings for granted. Now, maybe, we'll start paying closer attention to our families, our jobs and our finances. Hopefully, we'll learn a lesson here.

Man bad things yet to come. I hope everyone will be comfortable living in a cardboard box under I-95.
Meanwhile while your living like an animal the politicians and leaders of this pile of elephant manure nation will be sat back laughing and having a great time with the taxpayers money that they looted and plundered from the national treasury.

It's really hard to find the great prices today. It's back to the times of clipping coupons and doing your homework. Use the new site www.crazydollarshopper.com to help.
