From the “A recession for some is an opportunity for others” file… Time reports on products which have done the best since the going got tough. Predictably, the products reflect a new national priority on conserving resources and spending smart. For instance, people are buying elements of food to prepare their own meals and snacks rather than prepackaged food, like baking mixes rather than delicious, delicious Tastykakes. It’s nice to see, in Time’s article, that people are establishing good habits out of necessity – plus it’s encouraging that some folks are doing well.
And the headline (“What Sells in a Recession: Canned Goods and Condoms”) reflects that no matter how the economy is doing, sex sells.
