Saving More, Spending Less

We’re all hunkering down

Matthew Conrad, a financial manager at Complete Wealth Management in
Orange County, Calif., says he knows of people who drive a BMW or
Mercedes and eat macaroni and cheese for dinner several nights a week.

Yeah, but it’s imported Italian macaroni, 4 kinds of cheese, topped with panchetta, washed down with a nice Pinot Grigio.  And I did buy a new Blue-Ray player at the Circuit City Grand Going Out of Business Sale. And my used BMW only had 9100 miles on it when I bought it.  OK, we did toast the Steelers victory last night with domestic champagne.

Meanwhile, this is a lot of Government Cheese.

Tip from the Instapundit.

Update (15 February).  Looks like eating mac ‘n’ cheese at home is really catching on.  MM misses the economic kicker of home-cooking: here in Texas at least, there’s no sales tax on food.

As usual, the Instapundit was ahead of me on this.
