Your tips are simple and compact 🙂 Nice. For those how want to spent less then they’re earning: You should try bartering. It’s so easy on sites like barterquest.com where you can barter almost everything from goods to services and even real estates.
Best post EVER.
That means a lot coming from you. Thanks!
So simple, yet so hard at the same time…
I think a lot of things in life have simple answers that we somehow make more difficult.

That is way too clever! Why didn’t I think of it? You should be able to make some cash off of that idea 🙂
If only I could…

Thanks, but I’m going to keep living beyond my means and buying lottery tickets and penny stocks. Good luck with your “prudence” and “responsibility.”
Haha. Feel free to share the wealth when your lottery tix hit!
Very clever, and very true! But for many people, easier said than done, unfortunately.
Indeed it is easier said than done for many.

Yeah, I know. Sometimes I go off on tangents and I don’t know where to stop. It’s like I keep talking and talking and talking and talking…
