I loved that but man it wasn't funny at all. I do however think Dave Ramsey watched it and hatched his plan because that was basically it in a nutshell.
When we did the class one girls was complaining about how she could never save up the emergency fund 1000 dollars because she just barely gets ends to meet. I said well you have to make a sacrifice. She said she didn't have anywhere she could cut. She drives a leased luxury car, eats lunch out daily, and is constantly giving away clothes she can't fit and bought online. hmmmm
People are stupid..
Cable TV is not the problem..
Living within your means is the real solution. If you can't make ends meet, cut unneeded spending. Budgeting is basic math that even a dumbass like I can do.
