A Matter Of Opinion

What’s in your rebate?

Our front page story Sunday included interviews with folks who said what they’d do with any economic stimulus rebate. Short answer: They’d spend it.

Today, we got a press release from Consumer Credit Counseling Services, a non-profit group that helps consumers shovel out of debt. They had some suggestions, too.
—Save for emergencies.
—Prepare for the holidays.
—Become more energy efficient by upgrading appliances.
—Invest it.

Reminds me of our divided culture when it comes to food. Television cooking shows and magazines are filled with lavish recipes and meal planning (and commercials) as well as shows and commercials about diet, nutrition and exercise machines.

That said, what’s your rebate plan?
