  • Mostly impulses seem to fall into the second category, so if you can ride out that initial urge, perspective takes care of the rest.

    Maybe that's why my after-hours support from home is *still* being done at 33.6k on a P-100, I dunno... or maybe just my impluses happen on things other than technology.

    Other "money eaters":
    Credit card interest: avoid at all cost. At least with a car loan or a house loan you have something tangible to show for the expense (and possibly a tax break).

    Kids: But worth it IMHO.
    • I should clarify. I don't have a huge impulse buying problem. I probably bought more DVDs than I needed over the past year and I like to go book shopping, but I never made big ticket impulse buys (computers, stereo equipment).

      Now, my wife and I are on a more strict path, with less eating out (which was a big money waster for us). And last month, the first month we started being strict, we agreed to spend absolutely no money on non-food/rent/gas things, so no clothes, movies, concerts, etc. We did keep our Netflix subscription but that's it. Fortunately, I have a hookup to see lots of free movies in the theater or we would've gone nuts (or at least I would have).

      So we're getting our sh*t together, but I was just curious as to what people out there were doing.

      Maybe I just need to get my wife to make more money. Technically we're DINKs but she teaches piano and makes and even though her hourly rate is quite good, she only teaches about 15-20 hours per week right now.
