Some interesting stuff I’ve come upon lately. According to a recent Consumer Reports magazine poll, we’re saving more, spending less, and over half of us are paying our whole credit card bill each month. We are spending less than we earn for the first time in decades.

Then yesterday, from a really unlikely source, Parade magazine (read the article here), we find that even as about 4 our of 5 of us have felt the pinch, and nearly half have delayed or cancelled vacations (a good thing if it’s stuff we couldn’t afford anyway), more than half of us are getting closer to our spouses, way more than half are doing stuff ourselves, and I love this… 30% of us are volunteering more!

In the middle of the bad news, some great great stuff! Your thoughts?
