#1. CONSUMER CULTURE ARTICLES
Can you really earn $50 an hour saving money?

Sometimes it helps to step back and look at the big picture.

For example, I believe that most people earn a lot less than they think they earn once they factor in commuting time, car expense, lunches eaten out at work, clothes for work etc.
See my article:
How much is you time worth?

At the same time I think that people can save a lot more than most think they can save. It is not unreasonable to use suggestions from this newsletter and website and make $50 an hour or more. How? Well if you spend a few hours comparison shopping for auto insurance, for example, or lowering the deductible on your home owners insurance you might save $50 - $200 that year, but you will also continue to save that money year after year.
See my article:
Earn $50 an hour - work at home

And then there are a lot of attitudes in this society that cause us to spend more money than we might.
See my article:
Are you afraid of being called "cheap"?

There is even more. I believe that many of the teenage problems, rebellions, etc. are based in the consumer culture. Understanding the effect of the local mall on your children might lead to a happier family life.
See my article on:
The consumer society and the tragedy at Littleton Colorado

And last everyone assumes that if they had more money they would be happy. I believe it is not the money you have (assuming you have the minimum), but how that money is spent and managed that will make a person truly happy.
