Do you feel more comfortable spending money on the holidays this year?

………………….

John Landry IV — “I wouldn’t say I feel uncomfortable, but I’m certainly spending less than previous years.”

Wendy North — “No I am not comfortable. The economy is still iffy and therefore my purse strings are tighter. More baking this year and less buying.”

Cristina Cabigting — “I don’t feel comfortable spending this year since money has been tight all year. It would be a stupid choice to spend money I don’t have.”

Roger Wetzel — “What money? Who has money to spend?”

Andrez Lozano — “Economy hasn’t affected me, knock on my wood.”

Dina Dutton — “I don’t have the money. So I would rather volunteer at a nursing home or help the homeless. That is what the holidays are about.”
