Most of Holiday Budget Will Be Spent on Electronics

TechBargains, a leading deal aggregation website for electronics products, released its 2011 Holiday Survey, revealing that despite the weak economy consumers are still buying large amounts of consumer electronics this season. At least a quarter of all consumers’ holiday gift budgets will be spent on consumer electronics with 52% of shoppers expecting to spend between $250 to $500. More than 50% of men and women surveyed plan on spending half or more of their budget on electronics, completely unimpeded by the economic downturn.


Are you Simply Dressed?

We try to avoid certain things when we are eating.. I have found myself constantly checking labels and ingredients thanks to my health conscience hubby. I tend to choose sea salt over iodized salt and cane sugar over high fructose corn syrup. One thing that is hard to avoid is the corn syrup in condiments such as salad dressing and ketchup. However, you can imagine my surprise when I actually found Marzetti Simply Dressed Salad Dressing in the produce section, before I was even approached by them in the first place.
