I notice a pattern in my RSS reader today: Shopping. Black Friday. Purchasing power. Retail's effect on the economy. Each headline blooms before another similar one. I almost don't know where to begin with the theme, but these items stand out:
*According to the MPR homepage: Target 3Q profit off 4 percent, missing analyst forecasts
*On our discussion group Minnesota Life: Priscilla spills her plans for Black Friday - This is How I do it & What I am Hoping to Find while Greg shares his personal take on Tightwads and Spendthrifts.
*Chris Farrell isn't buying: A Cheery Holiday Shopping Season?
Whew. I've still got our Consumed series bookmarked.
