I will say that we don’t eat out that much–and it’s affected the industry I’m in (insurance), so bonuses are a little lower than usual. But, my husband works for Disney now, in planning trip itineraries, and he said you would think there is nothing wrong with the economy–people are still spending lots of money on vacations to Disney, it seems. :shrug: We are looking forward to the the stimulus check, but honestly? We are just putting it in the bank, in savings. I think that the government is a bit off in thinking that everyone’s gonna run out and buy that big plasma tv set or whatever, by the thousands. The people I have talked to, say they are banking it or paying down debt.:o
I do notice the sting of the economy no doubt at the gas pump, and in the grocery store. I do buy organically some things, but still–the bill is always so high for what seems to be ‘the basics’ I’m buying week in/week out.
Just curious if the economy is affecting your place of business? I’m in insurance, and we are losing business left and right because our fees, we’re told, are just too high–but we have been in business for a long time charging these fees, so this has to be having an impact.
Are you or your family affected negatively at all? Just curious how the recession (are we fully in it?) is affecting you/your family? If at all.
