Tips during this hard economy.

I'd like to share some of the budget-management techniques that I've had to develop during this economic downturn. So don't call that black-market organ merchant yet... there's still time to get your spending under control with these Money-Saving Tips For the New Economy:

Don't go out to eat and order expensive food such as lobster, steak, and condor. Instead, cook your own low-cost alternatives such as stir-fried chicken, spaghetti, grubs, and that old budgeter's classic: Top Ramen.

Similarly, don't drink expensive liquor like single-malt scotch. Brew corn-liquor in your bathtub and drink it while wearing a kilt.

Don't buy books. It's more cost-effective to form your opinions without any basis in fact.

Ask your coke dealer for one of those punch cards where after you buy 10 grams you get the 11th gram free.

Unemployment rates have risen among several struggling market sectors, but there is still ample employment to be found in the circus geek industry.

When vacationing, travel in the off-season. There are some real bargains at bed-and-breakfasts in Tora Bora right now.

Horde gasoline. According to the documentary film "Mad Max," gasoline will be very valuable after the upcoming apocalypse.

Stop wiping your rear with $100 bills. Instead, wipe your rear with Top Ramen.

That's about all Top Ramen is good for...

Actually I can one up your Top Ramsn my friend. At the local Save-A-Lot ( yea, I am in the budget crisis) there'a an off brand ramen (arent they all a bit off?) that cost $.09 per pack. Yea the brand is called Smack..Not making that up. Buy a pack of Smack for $.09, or a whole 20 pack for $1.55....Don't think I don't have a smack punch card...
