Making money in the recession

US News & World Report just posted 10 Winners in the Recession.

Some of them are not surprising if you think about it.

Netflix is way up.  So is going out to the movies.

Chocolate consumption is up, too.  Nice to know we are keeping our emotions soothed with the good stuff!

Seeds for vegetable gardens are selling well.  I expected gardening to grow a lot this year (sorry) due to the high prices of food and greater need to stretch (and save) money.  

But 25% growth?  That's a lot of concern being translated into positive action.

Biggest surprise for me?  Romance novels.  Science fiction and fantasy are helping folks escape reality, too.

Do you see any products or ideas making money right now?  Share in the comments.
