Getting Ready For the Holidays, Hurricane Michael and-More Shopping News and Deals

Good day everyone,
Hope your Week is going well. We're officially a couple of weeks into Fall/Autumn. Soon, the leaves will be falling from the trees & we'll be preparing for Winter. There's something else many of us are preparing for- The Holidays.

It's that joyous time to spend with family, give thanks and share. It's also a busy time for preparing those holiday meals and shopping. It's also the best time to find great deals.
So, as you can see, there's a lot that'll be going on, in these next few months.

The following article talks about experts' shopping season sales prediction. Here's what they're saying

Holiday shopping: Americans will boost spending 5 percent
More consumers will be feeling jolly this holiday season, pushing up holiday spending by 5 percent to $1,250 each, thanks to a growing economy, according to consulting company PwC. 
The biggest spenders this year will include men, high-earning millennials and Amazon Prime members, the study found. On the flip side, several types of consumers said they're likely to cut back this year, including people living in small towns and rural areas. 
What about you? Are you planning to spend more or less this holiday? Is the economy really better this year, to allow for "big spending"? Are you expecting "big deals" this year? How will you be getting ready for the holidays? Will you be shopping mostly online or mostly via the traditional "brick and mortar"? Join the conversation! Add your responses below. Would love to hear what you think

Up next- Hurricane Michael
Meteorologists are tracking this storm very closely. They're calling it a "monstrous storm that's taking aim off the coasts of Florida. The Governor of Fla has officially declared a state of emergency and has ordered mandatory evacuations, where over 130,000 people are expected to do soon. Many have already begun. The highways along the coast are backed up and schools have already closed their doors. Many have boarded up their homes and businesses and headed out.

Hurricane Michael has already claimed the lives of 13 people in Central America.(So sorry for the victims and their loved ones). So please, take heed to all alerts and orders from your government officials. Safety first, always!

The key to weathering a storm is-preparation. You must try to be the safest you can be, and help others to do the same. Below are some tips that can be helpful

One thing you should always do is-stay informed. Charge your cellphones up so you can keep up with what's going on. Also, if you have two-way radios or a portable radio, use those to keep up with local news and announcements and to communicate with loved ones.
Portable lighting is important, in case of power outages.

Be sure to pack needed supplies (a checklist can be found on FEMA's website. Many people have already shopped the stores for hurricane preparation items. If you still need to pick up some items, now would be a good time.

In closing this story on Hurricane Michael, I cannot iterate enough on how safety is a priority.
To all those who are in direct path of this storm, please- be safe!
