7 Things Americans Refuse To Give Up
It seems as though everyone has tightened their belts a bit with the economy over the past few years. While the financial “experts” say the economy is improving every month, a new poll from the PR Newswire suggests there are a number of things Americans would keep paying for regardless of their financial situation.
#7- Going out to eat … 9%
#6- Traveling … 10%
#5- Cable TV … 24%
#4- Their smartphone … 29%
#3- Their pets … 36%
#2- Their car … 40%
#1- Their Internet connection … 55% said they’d never give that up.
The poll also found that 36% of Americans say they live from paycheck to paycheck almost every month, down from 40% from last year’s survey, and the 46% high from 2008.
I know I could easily give up all the above except my pets and car. I would miss the internet connection but I would survive. I just wish there were more net options in the Binghamton area. And cable TV, I am so close to cutting now.
So what do you think? Are things getting better. What is the one thing you would never give up, no matter what?
