Arlo & Janis (2/25/09)

So it’s finally come to this. With the economy in free-fall, people are spending less and less money, causing retail stores to close at an alarming rate. Even so, I’m resisting the calls to spend, spend, spend to revive the sluggish economy. Today’s Arlo & Janis drives home the lunacy of spending money you don’t have on things you don’t need by showing a pair of mall cops kidnapping an unassuming suburban couple. For those of us lucky enough to have jobs, a good rule of thumb might be to spend on the essentials, then save…then save some more, and then finally spend a reasonable amount of money (not credit) on a luxury or two.
