So, do you want to know the secret of losing 10 pounds in a month? Eat less and exercise more. No magic and in reality that is exactly what I expected.
I did have high hopes for the "STOP SPENDING FOR STUPID STUFF" article though, I have to admit. I guess I never will learn. There's not that much new under the sun.
- Don't buy extended warranties. Have I ever once? No.
- Don't sign up for multiyear contracts at a gym you will seldom visit. Do I walk for my exercise for free? Yes.
- Do not pay for ring tones, apps and games for your cell phone. Do I even have a cell phone that does anything put allow me to make or receive the occasional call? No.
- Be content with the texting allowed on basic service for your cell phone. What? Have I ever once in my life texted?? No.
After reading the article I realized that the only thing I could have done to stop spending stupid is not to plunk down the $1.99 for the magazine. Lesson learned, but probably soon enough forgotten.
