I see myself spending more because I got a raise in my job.

I would say more because I feel like there is a lot more people I know wanting more this year.

Probably less, because of the current situation with the economy: the money is tight right now.

I will be spending less this year because I am not working right now.

Most likely the same as last year. We are here on holiday visiting the city, we feel very comfortable here. I haven’t been here in 21 years so we wanted to come to shop, explore, and experience this time of year in New York. It is very attractive.
