Recycling Update - $10.85 for my Wii fund


So I made $10.85 with my latest recycling efforts, and I've decided to start saving that money into a Christmas fund for next year.

I want to buy myself a Wii game console, but I'm too cheap to buy one now. I'm waiting until the price goes down a little, so I figure by next Christmas they should cost less than this Christmas.

This will be like my own little layaway program. I have to save up enough to buy it, but I will only be using my recycling money, so we'll see how long that will take. My goal is next Christmas, but who knows, maybe I'll make it sooner.

It's Official, We're in a Recession

Well it's official, we're in a recession.

For anyone out there who would like to know exactly what this means, a recession is when a country's Gross Domestic Product decreases for at least 2 consecutive quarters.

And if you don't know what Gross Domestic Product (or GDP) means, it is the total market value of all goods and services created within a period of time.

So basically this recession means that the total market value of all the goods and services we are producing has been decreasing for the last 2 quarters.
