Yep…the two are related. Apparently, they are among the top sellers of products in this recession. People are stocking up and they don’t want an extra mouth to feed.
It’s interesting to see this new “back-to-basics” psyche we’ve got going on. It would be nice to see it hang around for a lot longer than the recession…because we consume a whole lot more than we really need. I’m not pulling for Depression residual pack-ratting, but long term lower consumption might not be a bad idea. Maybe then more people in the world will get what they need, too. Maybe then, there really will be enough to go around.
