As time has passed since this post and Recession is upon some countries the reality of back to basics is here.

Main thing here is energy cost.Living in a cold climate heating a home is a priority.
For older people who are on a fixed income choosing between food and warmth is being discussed as a reality for many.Hobsons choice.

The gas prices here has gone DOWN below $2.00 and seem to be dropng even more. That is an example of the power we Americans have if we would use it. People cut back on filling up their tank, there was a glut of unused gasoline, the barrel prices then went down and so did the pump prices.

I hope we stay smart so it doesn't become business as usual with high prices.

I agree about the gas prices. I hope we Americans demand smaller cars with better mileage and push for using our own energy resources, the sooner the better.

Now that gasoline prices are dropping, I'd like to see those who were charging higher prices for food etc, due to the cost of trucking those products into stores, will start to drop those prices downward.

I read an article in today's paper about how several local restaurants are closing, because higher gas = higher food prices for the restaurant = higher menu prices, so people are eating out less. Vicious cycle.

Yesterday crude oil went up by $5.00 a barrel, so the speculators are doing it again. I'm so mad I could spit.

Josie, I'm with ya on that. Nothing like people not traveling during the holidays, which means less money into the economy. Geez!

I usually fly out to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving, yet not this year.

Kathy,
As a wealth coach and CFP, I want you to know that you are not alone. Many of my women business owners are experiencing what you are. I have a suggestion- first, that you have to really look at your business and see how you can do something different to make people want to do business with you no matter what their budget is.
Be careful to not get caught up in the negativity of the economy- you provide a wonderful and valuable service- don't forget that and don't forget to communicate that clearly.
