Ways To Save #1

I have decided to start a new series. I call it "Ways To Save." You know all about the poor economy right now. This is one of my small contributions to people who need to find ways to help with budgeting in these down times. So, here goes my first post.

You can save money if you do not buy vitamins. Read this. The neurologist writing makes the clear point that a healthy diet is all you need. Supplements do not do anything (except in specific cases which he describes) for the most part. Supplements are also freaking expensive. My recommendation: avoid them.

Note: Calcium is not mentioned in the article or the studies described and as far as I know it's a good idea to take calcium supplements if you're unable to have dairy (like me).

Also, don't buy soda pop - tap water is good enough. And you don't need cable, internet, video games, halloween costumes, cigarettes, alcohol, new cars, and both a cell phone and a land line. These are luxuries, not necessities. Buy what you NEED first and what you WANT with what you have left over (after putting a little into savings of course). You'll probably find you can afford a few luxuries, but you have to prioritize.
