    As for disagreeing with your boss, it helps if your boss isn’t an idiot, and actually values your opinion, even if he still disagrees after hearing it.

    I just came across this article []
    on saving money with a prepaid phone and I felt like a smarty-pants becuase that’s EXACTLY what I do.

    I cannot believe how much I’m saving after dumping my old contract.

    The other great thing is that it’s the same quality calls, service etc. for much less cost.

    The 9-step program wants us to only spend 50% on must-haves?!? Clearly the author has never lived in California. 50% of my after-tax paycheck goes purely to rent, and I live in a shoebox in the ghetto.
