So they’re finally admitting the U.S. is in a recession.
No shit, Sherlock.
A recession since last December! And some experts forecast it lasting another year or two. Even more reason to save your pennies, folks.
I know our families are arranging some grab bags gift exchanges this year, and we’re cutting down on our holiday spending in general. That’s not only because of the economy, but because of the money we’re funneling into the wedding savings account.
Meanwhile, I’m on the hunt for a little tabletop tree — 2 to 3 feet tall — to put in our front window on a decorative table that’s already there. Minimal tree decorating, yay. I love to decorate, but the lights make me nutty. Stringing up the lights!
