A HORRIBLE way to save money...

...is to get really, REALLY sick.

I've been puking and pooping (sorry) since Wednesday night. It is now Saturday night and this is the first time I've even ventured out of my bedroom.

You save money because you aren't going anywhere so therefore you save on gas money, not to mention wear and tear on your car.

You save money because you aren't eating or drinking a single, solitary thing, so no grocery money is spent.

You save money because you can't drag yourself out of bed long enough to take a shower. You're saving on water, heat, toiletries, energy in general.

You save money because when you're not puking and/or pooping, you are sleeping, so there are no energy costs going on there with the TV on or the lights on.

You save money because when you're puking and/or pooping, you don't want to go anywhere, do anything, see anyone, and you save on entertainment costs.

I'm WAY tired of saving money this way. I hope never, Ever, EVER again to be so gosh dern frugal. BLECH.

Oh - I had that a few weeks ago and it was miserable. I don't remember feeling that bad for a very long time. Glad you are feeling better!

Hope you are feeling better soon. It's awful when the two P's hit at the same time. Think of all the good you can do with the money you saved!

My favorite part of this kind of illness is that I lose weight. After all your comments sickness sounds like a win win win situation! Glad you are feeling better though.
