Get ready to uncover the latest shifts in consumer behaviour as I take the reins solo while Brandon is off rowing. You’ll hear all about my excitement of having my computer back from the Apple Store, which segues into an insightful discussion on the findings from the KPMG Summer Pulse Survey. We’ll analyze how inflation is shaping consumer spending, with notable cuts in personal care products and steady grocery expenditures. Plus, find out why subscriptions are still a hit, driven by their perceived quality, convenience, and cost savings.

We’ll then explore the intriguing dynamics of creative communities and their influence on consumer habits. From the expected reductions in entertainment, dining, and travel budgets to the strategic moves retailers might employ during these tighter times, there’s plenty to digest. I’ll share my take on the rising meal prices and shrinking portions at restaurants, contrasting it with McDonald’s innovative $5 value meal. Also, discover how the community of Trilith in Fayetteville, Georgia, is fostering creativity with its top-notch film and TV production facilities and vibrant cultural programs.

In the final segment, we highlight some exciting and innovative trends in leisure activities. Learn how the Playthrough app is revolutionizing mini golf by replacing traditional scorecards with a digital solution that enhances user experience and revenue opportunities. And don’t miss our introduction to Sixes Social Cricket, a unique fusion of cricket and socializing, recently making waves in Trinidad and Tobago. As we wrap up, I’ll share my weekend plans, including catching up on favorite shows and podcasts. Enjoy your weekend and see you next Monday!
