The managing editor of current events and culture for RBDN stopped me by the office water cooler this morning and mentioned I should blog more about our current economic crisis. “Put a positive spin on it, Mr. Byrd, people need a little pick-me-up.” I thanked her for her suggestion and sat down at my laptop to brainstorm.
Top Ten Ways to Save Money in this Down Economy
10- If you’re currently trying to gain weight so you can be a bouncer/cage fighter and so you have to buy and eat a lot of food, stop it.
9- Quit buying stuff (No Black Friday!)
8- Ask “What Would Suze Orman Do?”
7- Get things for free
5- Make all of your Christmas gifts — discover the inner artist!
4- Ride a scooter to work
3- No more dinner and a movie dates– get creative
2- Start a home-based business. Step one: eBay all your old junk
1- Celebrate holidays a day or two late, in order to take advantage of after-holiday sales (warning, your kids will probably hate you…)
