Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“ Has the banking crisis and current economic climate influenced your spending habits?”


“Not necessarily because I spend frugally. However, it does make you conscious about how you should spend.”

– Reginald Wright, Leigh Avenue

“No, it hasn't, but don't tell my husband. It has made us a bit more conscious of what we are doing with travel plans for future vacations but not really on a day to day basis.”

–Tracy Shore and Meredith, Trewbridge Court

“I am from The Netherlands but live here currently. I don’t think so. I was already very limited in spending and I continue that.”

–William Drees, Ross Stevenson Circle


“Oh yes, of course. I’m not spending anything anymore, just the basic stuff that we have to do and cutting expenses. I don't go to the Mall because I don't want to see things that would be tempting to buy. Money has been lost in investments since this has started so we have to be more careful.”

– Neuca Smukler, Lawrenceville

“In all honesty, it hasn't. We are retired and we had planned our retirement and settled our financial future so to speak. We built-in for ups and downs and it has not affected us.”

–Warren Brooks, South Monmouth Junction
