    Coyote,

    I plan to bank my extra $189/month and use it to pay bills (insurance, property taxes, etc.) when the time is due. That way, I won't have to sell equities, or scrimp on other things.
    Thanks from johnflesh and Southern Dad

    Coyote,

    Also, might I suggest you stop with the crappy, overpriced coffee drinks, and brew your own. You will save a lot more than $1.50/week.
    Thanks from syrenn

    One lady just reported that it will save her $1.50 a pay check. She said it would pay for her 1 year Costco Membership.

    Woot! Woot!

    Obama was handed the worst recession since the great depression and two wars. Thanks Republicans. Walk in, fuck shit up, walk out. Leave it for the Democrats to clean up.
