Although there are days it seems when my personal economy is sucking, it seems in general that the economy is getting a little better. I suspect there will be more layoffs because they are always the last things to stop but.........
I have noticed that more people are at Target and at the mall and they are buying, not just looking. More people are eating out. More people took a vacation recently than took one this summer.
I have noticed some new car purchases amongst the neighbors.
And I talked to a customer service rep at Citi mortgage and he said that in general, people are telling him that things are getting a little easier, that business is picking up and their job is feeling more secure.
Our business is picking up a a little. At the very least, cancellations are down, and people aren't so FROZEN about anything to do with money.
Is that holding true with what you've noticed even if your personal economy is not so hot?
