One thing leads to the next. The next thing you know you'll be looking at the kilowatts on the power meter turning every light and electrical thing off. You be keeping track of every mile and doing the math of miles per gallon to determine how bad you need something. then you'll wonder what is living, after you changed your standard of living. America, once had the highest standard of living in the world, not any more. The high cost of energy is the cause of the dark ages. pathetic for a country with the most natural resources.

I can only think about how much more money I'd have if the gas and power bills wasn't high. That would improve the minimum wages for workers.

So in the month of December--when there's Christmas and New Year's--you're supposed to put away each week $49, $50, $51, then $52?

Uh-huh. Am I the only one who sees how quickly this fails? I don't think those who really stick to this plan have any kids. September is a killer month, with back-to-school shopping, and we're supposed to sock away $150 that month?

Not only is this gimmicky, it's unrealistic. Let's see an update of this in autumn.
