Debbie Downer, here! No, but seriously folks, consumer confidence levels have fallen to their lowest point as the US weathers a recession.
It's a scary and lean time for everyone, and of course, people are being more protective of how they're spending money, so it's obvious that electronics are going to take a hit.
As much as I say they are a necessity, let's be honest, new TVs and cell phones are not essentials (at least until things look up again). I know I'm in a shopping freeze, which includes gadgets, and I'll probably feel this way this Christmas too, unfortunately.
Are you also holding off on buying electronics for now — for yourself and for the holidays?
