And driving to work when it's only a few miles away? Waste of money (gas, insurance, etc.) if you're obsessed with "super saving".

Why not just rent a room? Saving on housing costs is one of the biggest and best changes you can make when you're trying to really stack cash.

I definitely advocate being super frugal (to the point that most people would consider it extreme), but he wasn't very smart about it.



for a reporter/asst news producer he could've definitely been smarter.

he can't bike to work if he's not getting his nutrients.  he would for sure collapse in the heat.

Not yet, I'm literally just starting. I'm trying to find someone to take 2k down....the one person I found does not have tenants & I would need tenants up front. I may try to wholesale it though.

Noooo.DeadLOL

Tbh, I read an article telling folk very similar info (not eating moldy food tho lol) about living on or about the same budget after you get out of school and land a job. That way you can pay off debts, save, etc.

I used to drink these for wt gain. I was shocked at how expensive they were since they are marketed to people on fixed incomes.

This is ridiculous on all kinds of levels. The U-verse bill is only for a limited time and it goes up to full price afterwards.

And eating rotten meat, seriously? Yes put your health in jeopardy for financial gain. Whether you're a dumb football player trying to win the playoffs on an injury or a poor young guy trying to make it in journalism, you're a dummy.

I see he didn't mention medical benefits.
