I have a memory foam mattress and love it. I don't think its very hot, but then again my house is really cold even in the hot summers. The first night I didn't really like it but now I really, really love it. I have had it for about a year. One thing you might not know is that when they are advertised, it may say something like temperature controlled. Ect. That just means that the spot you have been laying in gets really soft and comfy. The rest of the mattress will feet a lot harder and harder to the touch. Hope that helped and made sense!!! Amerisleep cool and healthy memory foam

Consumer spending climbs 0.8% on higher incomes

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Washington, D.C. — A Monday report by the Commerce Deptartment showed that consumer spending in the U.S. for September rose more than forecast as household incomes climbed.

Household purchases increased 0.8%, the most since February and topping the 0.6% gain expected by Bloomberg. The Sept. rise followed a 0.5% advance in August.

Incomes rose 0.4%, the most since March.

The economy expanded at a 2% annual pace in the third quarter, boosted by the uptick in household purchases.

“We have some positive momentum that we could gradually build on over time,” Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates, told Bloomberg.

Retail sales in September and August had the best back-to-back showing since late 2010.
