On What Is It About Americans and Excess

I wonder if our lack of social safety net in some weird way plays into our hording tendencies. I'm sure we've all heard of people who survived Great Depresion I who became horders.

@guenna77 Well... I guess 3 billion women really want to look like thirteen year olds who are 5'11, 105 lbs and 28AAA bra. I think advertisers influence us.

Try Virgin Mobile or Nelnet for a cheaper cellphone and service. I've seen BestBuy sell Virgin Mobile smart phones for as little as ten dollars.

On Madison Is A Great Small City, Unless You're Black

@Aconite Do you really see guilt in this article? I just see a Black woman writing about her life experience and how that plays into her financial life via living in a high cost city where she doesn't feel like the other. As Allison said, all of these things intersect. For an example, I pay about 1k dollars per month to live in a building with security because I am a woman where as my brother lives in a basement apartment for 600.00 per month because he does not have the same fears that I have. You could also make the argument about money spent on grooming female/male.
