Spending Less-Feeling Guilty?

There was a blurb on Yahoo about the companies that are probably next to go under, because as we all know. everyone is buying less.

I seem to have a lot of company in my pledge to buy no clothes this year. This report stated that while in previous years only 4 percent said that they would not buy new clothes, this year it's up to a third.

Last year's rebate apparently was squirreled away by most of us. How's the next "economic stimulus" going to play out?

Sure, spending is good to stimulate the economy; but like the saying about all politics being local, all spending should be personal. I'm sticking to my pledge of no clothes in '09.
