Quick thought on a weekend post

I was intrigued to learn that cosmetics powerhouse L'Oreal increased the spend in the first half of 2010 in promotions and advertising, specifically around the premium and luxury category. While I am watching the fluctuation in the marketplace along with everyone else, this appears to be a good indication that consumer goods are moving.

And back to our scheduled programming...

Have I mentioned my love of Aldi? FANTASTIC food market with exceptional prices, great seasonal produce and snackies galore. German chocolate bars for $1.29? You betcha. Extra virgin olive oil at $4.99? Yup Yup. Not to mention the cheapy decent wines that rival Two-buck-Chuck.

I talked to an Aldi insider a few days ago who gave me the background on this German company. Did you know they are also involved with Trader Joe's? Who knew!

That's where I'm spending my dollars, at Aldi down on Old Denton Road. That is, until a TJ's comes into town.
