It is becoming more and more apparent that the middle class is getting squeezed. We got a hit in August and usually September and October it would work up till Christmas but honestly until December 10th rolls around it is only the weekends.
I am more aware of looking for sales when I shop for food. Cereal has skyrocketed and other goods as well.
Gas goes up. I tell you the middle class diner is not dining like they used to.
