If We Spend Too Much, Blame It On The Christmas Music

Chances are, if you’ve strolled through Lufkin Mall lately, you’ve heard Christmas music piping through the speakers as you shop.

Maybe you’ve thought nothing of it. Tis the season after all, and we expect to hear the Christmas music in our favorite stores. In fact, not hearing it would be an odd thing.

Wild New Ice Cream Flavors Are In The Works

Seasonal flavors of coffee, ice cream, and even potato chips are all the rage. We get those, right? It's not too hard to understand that pumpkin ice cream might be kinda good, maybe tasting a bit like pumpkin pie. Pumpkin coffee is yummy too. Those who have tried the pumpkin-flavored Pringles say they're surprisingly good too. The sweet-salty combination works.

Note to gals; buy green clothing. (And there's your Christmas hint fellas.)

People get paid to sit around and think about what colors should identify a particular year or a particular season, and then they declare it to be true, and people buy those colors. Amazing!

The color company Pantone has issued their annual color forecast, and if we want to be hip next year, this is the color we should buy.

The amount we fork over for Christmas gifts has gone up every year since 2008.

The iPads, flat screen TVs, and video game must-haves ain’t cheap! When you add up the hot electronics, the ugly sweaters, and the popcorn tin gift sets, we’re spending just shy of a thousand bucks on Christmas.

Online Shoppers Admit to Browsing in Unlikely Places

Are you planning to shop in the store, or online this weekend? Actually going to Lufkin Mall, grabbing the item you want, and paying for it there without having to wait for UPS to bring it to you seems sort of nostalgic now. Die hard shoppers might argue it's the most fun way to obtain new things, but there is something quick and convenient about electronically adding to cart.

If you shop online, where in the house are you sitting? The toilet? I kid you not. Millions of Americans are participating in online shopping while sitting on the porcelain throne.

How Many Calories Does That Thanksgiving Meal Have?

The season of eating continues this week.

We stuffed our faces full of candy at Halloween, and now it’s on to the big Thanksgiving meal. This Thursday we’ll sit around the TV watching the Cowboys’ game and graze all day on turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course that green bean casserole with the crunchy onions on top that seems to find its way to most tables.

Have you ever put down the fork long enough to count the calories? Prepare yourself for the shock!

Powerball Jackpot Grows to $185 Million

Anytime the Powerball jackpot starts to swell, the lines grow longer to buy tickets and the pot of cash grows even bigger. So expect that $185 million jackpot to continue to move today as the day goes on.

And pay off debt, buy a new house, donate to charity, buy a new car - you could be rollin’ in George Clooney money.

I’ll post the past few non-winning Powerball numbers in case you want to compare your own string of lucky numerals. Good luck!
