“Making decisions is energy-consuming. Subjects who use their willpower to eat healthy radishes instead of the available and sumptuous chocolates are less likely to persist in solving unsolvable puzzles. Subjects who are told to suppress emotional reactions to a movie are less able to solve solvable anagrams. We have a limited amount of decision-making power to allocate on a moment to moment basis. That is why developing small but healthy habits that over time will become automatic is so money.”

You make $50,000/year? That’s actually about $2,900 per month after taxes. This is one of the simplest, best articles I’ve found on the hidden costs of living that most people never consider (then wonder why they can never get ahead).

“You see Ramit likes to focus on saving money where it really counts. He focuses on the big things in life that we waste money on rather than toiling away for three hours to save $4. I spent less than 30 minutes on the phone and saved $175.89. Much better than the money I saved at CVS yesterday.”

Just letting you know that the final link in the post (My No Debt Plan) has a problem – hhhtp. Not a big deal, but I figured you’d want to know. Otherwise, some good content here. I’m still reading.

It’s time to resign my lease and last night I tried to bring my NYC landlord down. He wouldn’t budge, even though I think we’re now a bit over priced and had plenty of exampels for him. I doubt he could rent for cheaper. My rent didn’t go up at least. I requested that he think about it. We’ll see if we decide to stay or not!

When I moved into my apartment complex in 2004, they couldn’t keep anybody, because home loans were so cheap. I got my one-bedroom apartment for $499/month (in an upper-middle-class suburb of Dallas). Each successive lease I have signed has raised that price by $10 or $15, leading to the most recent price of $542.

By the way, the video was AWESOME!

Too bad things in the real worls aren’t that humorous (and with the Большевист in the White House things look to get much much worse before they get better.)

Hey Ramit,
Thanks for the site, keep up the good work. I used the Rent article to help me negotiate a new lease, saving me $70/month or $840/year. Thanks man, Let me know if you are ever back in F.O.
