When you are trying to weather a severe economic meltdown, you must look for money making opportunities everywhere.
Like maybe taking on a part time job. Or selling a U.S. Senate seat in Illinois.
Am I the only one who thinks it’s kind of sweet that he was also trying to secure a lucrative job for his wife too? You know, sweet in a very corrupt, smarmy kind of way.
I don’t know why everyone is coming down so hard on him. The guy has bills to pay, hair care product to purchase.
Ok. Tip number two. Even in this crappy economy, there ARE jobs.
According to a recent news report, there are openings in pipeline transportation and mining. Yup. Seriously.
Remember when your folks used to say, “What in heavens to betsy are you going to do with a pipeline transportation degree?”
Well, look at you now, Miss Smarty Pants.
If perhaps, you didn’t have the brilliant foresight to major in pipeline transportation, it’s definitely time to cut costs.
Follow Rick’s lead…
My husband is a true martini man (I mean, we named our dog Martini for gosh sakes). Of course, we got rid of our dog but Rick still likes his drink.
In an effort to save money, Rick recently gave up his ritzy Grey Goose vodka for the more favorably priced…
And yes, it’s as velvety and smooth as it sounds.
Another way to save some cash… Instead of spending 40 bucks a ticket to take the girls to fun kid shows like Sesame Street Live or Dear Edwina, they now get to dance at home to Neil Sedaka’s new children’s CD, “Walking Up is Hard To Do.”
Nobody gets you through the hard times like Sedaka.
Well, there is some good news. At least President Obama is working hard at the White House to fix this whole ridiculous mess.
What?! That Bush dude is STILL in charge? Are you sure? Because it really seems like his time is up.
And Governor Blagojevichitslkaslgkhalghsilsich hasn’t yet stepped down? What is that guy waiting for?!
Ok. We may need another round of Tito’s. For everyone.
