Thank you very much to those guys

00:01:39.920 –> 00:01:42.440

00:01:42.440 –> 00:01:44.480
News a lot some stuff in the news

00:01:45.240 –> 00:01:49.080
not as much as well not as much as it usually is but there was always a lot of news but

00:01:49.080 –> 00:01:53.340
parts of eggs, I guess there’s a big article in the

00:01:53.340 –> 00:02:00.640
front page of the local paper talking about the cost of eggs how the cost of eggs and all that have gone up tremendously and

00:02:00.640 –> 00:02:03.920
It really has eggs and eggs and even milk

00:02:03.920 –> 00:02:06.520
Both those things have gone up tremendously

00:02:06.520 –> 00:02:10.680
All due to the cost of fuel and all that kind of in all those sorts of things

00:02:11.560 –> 00:02:18.280
Unfortunately, the farmers not making more it’s the the cost of transport is what they’re saying and the cost of you know

00:02:18.280 –> 00:02:23.240
What it costs them, but you know taxes have gone up. Everything’s gonna so the the farmer is

00:02:23.240 –> 00:02:28.280
you know feeling it with the cost of fuel the cost of this the cost of that and

00:02:28.280 –> 00:02:31.240
the cost of equipment and all that kind of stuff but

00:02:31.240 –> 00:02:38.380
what they’re saying is that the the extra added expense is not going to the farmer it’s going to the people that

00:02:39.120 –> 00:02:44.760
Transport it and the companies and all that that you know kind of they’re selling it

00:02:44.760 –> 00:02:46.760
It’s not really going to the farmer. So I thought

00:02:46.760 –> 00:02:48.640
Thought that was

00:02:48.640 –> 00:02:50.640
kind of sad

00:02:50.640 –> 00:02:55.400
Also to the Donald Trump apparently is

00:02:55.400 –> 00:03:00.960
Apparently, yeah, obviously he said he’s gonna run for president again, and apparently he is

00:03:00.960 –> 00:03:03.120
petitioned meta

00:03:03.120 –> 00:03:06.680
To unlock his social media account. We know Twitter already did

00:03:07.920 –> 00:03:12.520
Elon Musk did that when he bought the company out, but apparently now they are saying that

00:03:12.520 –> 00:03:15.880
They are going to be

00:03:15.880 –> 00:03:19.080
Looking to Donald Trump is looking to get his Facebook account

00:03:19.080 –> 00:03:21.120

00:03:21.120 –> 00:03:25.060
The only thing that what’s interesting about this article is he I haven’t seen anything yet about him

00:03:25.060 –> 00:03:30.580
Reaching out to Google to see if he can get his YouTube account unlocked because he did have quite a few YouTube followers

00:03:30.580 –> 00:03:32.580
I thought he wasn’t doing a YouTube channel. I thought

00:03:32.580 –> 00:03:34.920
But like I said, I’m really surprised about that

00:03:34.920 –> 00:03:41.560
I’m waiting to hear if they will I doubt meta will but you never know it’ll remain to

00:03:41.560 –> 00:03:45.200
It’ll remain, you know

00:03:45.200 –> 00:03:48.960
The rain to be seen but I’m curious if he reaches out to Google. I

00:03:48.960 –> 00:03:53.220
Don’t think he did snapchat or tick-tock or in that but I’d be very curious to see

00:03:53.220 –> 00:04:01.560
If they unlock his Facebook account, they get like 25 million followers at one point maybe more but that’s a lot of people

00:04:02.240 –> 00:04:06.060
So we will have to see like I said, I’m curious see what happens with that

00:04:06.060 –> 00:04:15.040
So also in the news as we all as big biggest breaking news today was a Solomon Pinay or whatever he

00:04:15.040 –> 00:04:18.880
He’s the one who lost the 22 Senate race

00:04:18.880 –> 00:04:23.040
The steps are the State House in district 14, excuse me

00:04:23.040 –> 00:04:27.520
apparently they’re saying he hired a bunch of people to go ahead and

00:04:27.520 –> 00:04:31.840

00:04:32.000 –> 00:04:38.920
Democratic offices, apparently there’s four offices that were involved in the shooting. They’re saying he collaborated. He’s the one that did it

00:04:38.920 –> 00:04:41.880
He’s been taken into custody now

00:04:41.880 –> 00:04:46.960
By the in New Mexico. So we were curious to see I mean if that’s the case

00:04:46.960 –> 00:04:53.480
It really is really sad what the what the world is coming to I know

00:04:53.480 –> 00:04:57.520
You know, there’s been a lot of stuff with don’t trust the results and all that kind of stuff

00:04:57.520 –> 00:05:03.560
we’re hearing but it was getting out to the point where people that are losing or are being that sore loser to hiring people to

00:05:03.560 –> 00:05:06.200
Go ahead and shoot up people that did win

00:05:06.200 –> 00:05:10.380
And they’re trying to kill people off to trigger another election

00:05:10.380 –> 00:05:14.480
A runoff election that mean that that’s pretty sad and really pathetic

00:05:14.480 –> 00:05:19.400
I really hope they do if this is if they do dig into this and

00:05:19.400 –> 00:05:24.820
Find out that he is the you know, indeed the one that did it which it does look like it is a

00:05:25.520 –> 00:05:27.520
multiple page article here on the

00:05:27.520 –> 00:05:30.120
It’s been sent Fox. It’s on

00:05:30.120 –> 00:05:32.360
CNN it’s on

00:05:32.360 –> 00:05:36.600
MSNBC it’s on everywhere about this if this is the case, it’s pretty sad

00:05:36.600 –> 00:05:40.280
Like I said, I don’t you know, I mean it’s one thing to lose one day to concede

00:05:40.280 –> 00:05:46.340
It’s another thing to to lose and then risk and then cause violence so there can be a runoff election

00:05:46.340 –> 00:05:48.340
So you have another chance to get elected events

00:05:48.340 –> 00:05:52.960
That’s pretty sad pretty pathetic and it shows kind of

00:05:53.680 –> 00:05:59.120
The where I mean if the shows the way our country is going and how people really are not

00:05:59.120 –> 00:06:06.120
You know, I mean, you know, I mean I wouldn’t want somebody like that in office. That’s that sort of a loser. I mean let alone

00:06:06.120 –> 00:06:09.120
You know just

00:06:09.120 –> 00:06:14.000
It’s just a scary thought to see what he would have done if he lost something like I mean that’s losing a seat

00:06:14.000 –> 00:06:15.680
I get it, but I

00:06:15.680 –> 00:06:19.260
Mean, what would be like if you lost the bill or if he doesn’t get his way in the house?

00:06:19.260 –> 00:06:22.180
Is he gonna start, you know attacking people in the house now?

00:06:22.180 –> 00:06:25.540
I mean, you know, it’s just kind of a scary thought. I mean

00:06:25.540 –> 00:06:28.200
thank God nobody was hurt but

00:06:28.200 –> 00:06:32.980
You know, it’s it’s a scary thing and I think the fact that

00:06:32.980 –> 00:06:41.020
You know, I mean that that he would even think that just shows he wasn’t a good candidate so

00:06:41.020 –> 00:06:44.980
unfortunately, you don’t know this before these you know before the elections but

00:06:44.980 –> 00:06:47.960
You know glad we found this out and you know

00:06:47.960 –> 00:06:54.660
And of course and the news is blowing this up because obviously it’s you know, it’s sort of a Republican candidate

00:06:54.660 –> 00:07:01.500
It’s pro. It’s I think he’s a pro-trumper. So obviously the news is really blowing this up now, which I don’t think is really right either

00:07:01.500 –> 00:07:08.440
But I mean everybody that voted for him or thought he was a good person does have the right to know this but obviously the news

00:07:08.440 –> 00:07:10.440
Is gonna blow it up even more because it’s a Republican

00:07:10.440 –> 00:07:13.140

00:07:13.140 –> 00:07:17.400
We’ll keep an eye on that and see what happens there

00:07:18.400 –> 00:07:21.260
But I’m sure he’s probably gonna go away for a long time

00:07:21.260 –> 00:07:24.020
He’s not gonna skate away from this one on free

00:07:24.020 –> 00:07:26.880
I know a lot of politicians who just skate away on free, you know free

00:07:26.880 –> 00:07:31.740
But I have a feeling this one that they’re gonna make sure it sticks and he’s gonna be doing some just he won’t be able

00:07:31.740 –> 00:07:33.340
To run again. I can tell you that

00:07:33.340 –> 00:07:37.800
But the politicians you never know, but I just I don’t think he’s gonna be able to not after this

00:07:37.800 –> 00:07:41.180
But what the wait and see again to developing story, so

00:07:41.180 –> 00:07:44.300
We’ll see what happens

00:07:44.840 –> 00:07:47.940
So as far as the Florida governor

00:07:47.940 –> 00:07:52.420
We all know DeSantis is looking possibly to run for president this year

00:07:52.420 –> 00:07:58.900
Looks like the Republicans might you know might give him the nomination. I can’t picture them giving Trump the nomination

00:07:58.900 –> 00:08:03.180
We’ll have to see what happens. We won’t know that for quite a while yet, but

00:08:03.180 –> 00:08:09.860
He wants to ban all mandatory. He wants pretty much anything to a cove it he wants to ban permanently

00:08:09.860 –> 00:08:12.780

00:08:12.780 –> 00:08:16.960
You know obviously to make himself look better for the you know to the people that are against

00:08:16.960 –> 00:08:21.080
Vaccines and all that he wants to he’s trying to do a big push to ban everything

00:08:21.080 –> 00:08:29.140
Pro vaccine and in Florida, you know make masks illegal make you know make the vaccines

00:08:29.140 –> 00:08:33.600
You know illegal just anything to you know

00:08:33.600 –> 00:08:39.680
I I don’t care if you if you don’t you know, I think that it just like with anything else

00:08:39.680 –> 00:08:45.820
It should be you know approach it should be choice. The government shouldn’t have a choice whether to ban it or to not ban it

00:08:45.820 –> 00:08:49.320
I don’t I don’t think personally like the idea of

00:08:49.320 –> 00:08:56.080
Banning masks. I think the mass I think making them as optional should be a thing

00:08:56.080 –> 00:08:58.700
But I don’t think I think banning them

00:08:58.700 –> 00:09:04.200
Upsets me a little bit only because if I choose to wear a mash it have the choice to wear a mask if I want to

00:09:04.200 –> 00:09:08.380
Or not not being told I can’t wear a mask. I don’t I don’t like that

00:09:08.380 –> 00:09:12.360
I’ll should be it should be your choice. I don’t believe I should be told to wear it

00:09:12.360 –> 00:09:14.600
I don’t think I should be told not to wear it. I think it should be my choice

00:09:14.600 –> 00:09:17.700
So I think I think mass optional

00:09:17.700 –> 00:09:25.400
I I think is the way it should be personally just like I think vaccine should be up certain vaccine should be optional

00:09:25.400 –> 00:09:30.460
I don’t believe you have the right to tell me hey, it’s mandatory. I get it. Okay, it’s mandatory. I don’t get it

00:09:30.460 –> 00:09:33.680
It should be optional if you want to get it

00:09:33.680 –> 00:09:36.760
You’re more than willing to get it if you can’t if you don’t want to get it. That’s okay, too

00:09:37.920 –> 00:09:41.480
Because I I don’t know I just don’t I don’t like I just don’t like that. I

00:09:41.480 –> 00:09:46.860
Think that there should not I just don’t like the fact of being I don’t like the fact of being told

00:09:46.860 –> 00:09:50.320
Yes, I have to I don’t like the thought of being told you know

00:09:50.320 –> 00:09:57.020
No, you know you can’t or I just the government’s job is they can put things in place, but

00:09:57.020 –> 00:10:01.040
I don’t agree with the fact of

00:10:01.040 –> 00:10:07.680
You know banning things optional option give people options and let them do what they want

00:10:07.680 –> 00:10:10.080
That’s not the government’s job is it’s a mandate things

00:10:10.080 –> 00:10:15.480
But speaking of mandating now, Ohio wants to try to mandate

00:10:15.480 –> 00:10:17.800

00:10:17.800 –> 00:10:19.800
Well, they want they’re trying to mandate

00:10:19.800 –> 00:10:24.360
Be sure I get this right. They’re trying to mandate that you have to use photo ID to vote

00:10:24.360 –> 00:10:27.440
And according to this article

00:10:27.440 –> 00:10:33.000
They’re saying that this was quietly done, which I don’t know how that would be but

00:10:34.160 –> 00:10:39.920
And they’re saying now that this will make people who you have to show their ID in Ohio to vote

00:10:39.920 –> 00:10:43.960
Which I’m okay with I mean, I’ve always been okay with

00:10:43.960 –> 00:10:46.120

00:10:46.120 –> 00:10:49.600
With having to show your ID to vote. I’ve never not been okay with that

00:10:49.600 –> 00:10:58.300
But I again what I don’t like that people are saying. Oh well it it hurts. You know it hurts

00:11:00.040 –> 00:11:06.880
You know the elderly voting it hurts the the people that like to vote early it hurts the people that

00:11:06.880 –> 00:11:14.780
That want to you know that you know they the minorities and all that I mean, I don’t understand why

00:11:14.780 –> 00:11:19.360
People can’t show their ID to vote. I mean if you want to vote early go up

00:11:19.360 –> 00:11:22.480
Do you have to why not go to the post office show your ID?

00:11:22.480 –> 00:11:25.480
They see it’s you okay. Here’s your ballot

00:11:25.480 –> 00:11:31.680
You can go or you know people that are in nursing homes or homebound can you know reach out make it a you know?

00:11:31.680 –> 00:11:33.680
place facing call or

00:11:33.680 –> 00:11:38.700
Something you have to send I mean, but there we got phones on days you have to email or send a copy of ID

00:11:38.700 –> 00:11:41.280
I mean, I know there’s ways around everything if you try hard enough

00:11:41.280 –> 00:11:45.180
But I don’t understand what the big idea is having to show some sort of ID I

00:11:45.180 –> 00:11:50.960
Just don’t understand that everybody has to have some kind of photo ID and when people say to me no no no

00:11:51.280 –> 00:11:57.440
Not everybody has photo ID really because I know a lot of people that drink that have that are against

00:11:57.440 –> 00:12:01.520
Showing ID to vote but are perfectly okay with showing it to get alcohol

00:12:01.520 –> 00:12:07.200
So I just think that if you have to show your ID to you know to drink

00:12:07.200 –> 00:12:09.680
Why not have to show your ID to vote so in PA?

00:12:09.680 –> 00:12:14.280
We had our new governor Josh Shapiro

00:12:14.280 –> 00:12:17.280
sworn in the other day and

00:12:17.560 –> 00:12:22.120
I don’t know well. I guess that it’s he hasn’t been in every he just got 20 a day, so it’s been way too

00:12:22.120 –> 00:12:28.120
You know not enough time to see it how he is or what he’s gonna do

00:12:28.120 –> 00:12:35.760
You know abortion rights are still gonna stay here as long as he’s in place a lot of people happy about that myself included

00:12:35.760 –> 00:12:39.580
But like I said what to be you be curious to see what he does

00:12:39.580 –> 00:12:42.700
you know obviously the first hundred days usually is when

00:12:42.700 –> 00:12:45.320
presidents and any

00:12:46.160 –> 00:12:49.640
Politician you know lay out what they’re what things are gonna be like

00:12:49.640 –> 00:12:54.000
So George Santos apparently took

00:12:54.000 –> 00:13:01.260
$3,000 from a guy that was raising money for I guess his dog to have surgery

00:13:01.260 –> 00:13:04.020

00:13:04.020 –> 00:13:08.260
Santos said he was gonna raise money for him and then apparently said he took the money

00:13:08.260 –> 00:13:13.320
Being and now they’re saying he doesn’t know what he’s you know he has no idea what these guys are talking about

00:13:14.400 –> 00:13:17.300
We hasn’t made it’s only three grand still good

00:13:17.300 –> 00:13:22.180
You know it’s just it’s a chunk of change, but that might have been to pay for somebody’s dog surgery

00:13:22.180 –> 00:13:24.180
But apparently that was in the news

00:13:24.180 –> 00:13:30.920
He’s saying he knows doesn’t remember anything about it again another story with golf with with crowdfunding gone wrong

00:13:30.920 –> 00:13:35.240
out of New Jersey, and that’s the reason why I bring it up, so

00:13:35.240 –> 00:13:41.080
Like I said, I just wanted to bring that up because they talk about being careful with crowdfunding

00:13:42.040 –> 00:13:48.240
And just another story and ironically it’s at a New Jersey as well, so I thought that was pretty interesting

00:13:48.240 –> 00:13:51.960
So something else I wanted to wanted to bring up

00:13:51.960 –> 00:13:54.920
I’ve been on kind of

00:13:54.920 –> 00:13:57.000
kind of on a kick of

00:13:57.000 –> 00:13:58.880
trying to

00:13:58.880 –> 00:14:01.800
I’ve been trying to do little things to help be healthier

00:14:01.800 –> 00:14:05.200
so one of the things I’ve been doing is I got the

00:14:05.200 –> 00:14:09.160
The new I heard about this this product today on another podcast

00:14:09.240 –> 00:14:14.320
They’re not a sponsor of mine, but I just want to point out liquid IV if you guys ever heard of them

00:14:14.320 –> 00:14:22.640
You take a little you take the little pouch of mixed mixture put it in 16 to 20 ounces of water mix it up it gives

00:14:22.640 –> 00:14:24.000

00:14:24.000 –> 00:14:27.240
electrolytes it gives you all that stuff you’re supposed to have and

00:14:27.240 –> 00:14:32.040
Supposed to make close to really good for you. I took it the other day out with me when I went out in the woods

00:14:32.040 –> 00:14:35.640
Stuff like that. It’s actually really good. It’s also better than Gatorade for you

00:14:35.640 –> 00:14:38.480
Like I said, it tastes really good

00:14:39.000 –> 00:14:41.200
Which is good because I’m not a big water drinker

00:14:41.200 –> 00:14:45.960
I know I should be but I’m not but I’m doing this to try to go ahead and

00:14:45.960 –> 00:14:48.120
Drink less stuff. That’s bad for me

00:14:48.120 –> 00:14:53.640
You know I don’t I don’t drink any beer when you have a hard out hard liquor anything like that, but I do drink soda

00:14:53.640 –> 00:14:57.460
I do drink Red Bull once in a while stuff like that when I’m hanging out with my friends

00:14:57.460 –> 00:15:01.560
so I’ve tried to cut back on some of the regular sugar intake and

00:15:01.560 –> 00:15:04.920
16 or 20 ounces of this stuff is

00:15:04.920 –> 00:15:08.120
Only is less than 20 calories so

00:15:08.400 –> 00:15:13.800
Supposed to be much better for you much healthier for you and like I said so the liquid IV they’re a

00:15:13.800 –> 00:15:21.520
Sponsor they’re not a sponsor of mine. I wish they were but they are sponsor. I heard him on Christopher Titus’s podcast

00:15:21.520 –> 00:15:25.340
I’ve heard about him on Nick Diaz’s pot. I think it’s Nick D

00:15:25.340 –> 00:15:30.440
Joey Diaz’s posess Nick Diaz Joey if it was forget his name first name, but the Diaz podcast

00:15:30.440 –> 00:15:34.600
Brogan’s had them as a sponsor a few times on his show

00:15:35.480 –> 00:15:39.480
But I do want to point that out so like I said, that’s liquid IV it

00:15:39.480 –> 00:15:43.880
They’re actually really good really like them and also you’re saving the planet, too

00:15:43.880 –> 00:15:47.840
I use a reusable if you use a reusable bottle like I’ve been using

00:15:47.840 –> 00:15:51.100
Save money, you know that constantly going out to buy drinks

00:15:51.100 –> 00:15:57.040
Which are expensive a few dollars every day grabbing drinks can add up its little money saving tip and

00:15:57.040 –> 00:16:00.480
Like I said this way, it’s a little healthier for you as well

00:16:00.480 –> 00:16:04.480
Some other things sure I wanted to point out with money saving tips

00:16:05.280 –> 00:16:07.840
There’s a podcast I listen to

00:16:07.840 –> 00:16:12.320
where they actually do have a it’s a whole thing is

00:16:12.320 –> 00:16:16.280
money saving about money saving tips and

00:16:16.280 –> 00:16:20.320
One of the things that and I think it’s great to try to you know

00:16:20.320 –> 00:16:24.640
You know squeeze a buck and save a dollar where you can especially in this day and age

00:16:24.640 –> 00:16:26.640
I think it’s very important to us with the cost of inflation

00:16:26.640 –> 00:16:29.640
it’s great to see people trying to save money, but

00:16:29.640 –> 00:16:32.820
one of the things I thought was was interesting is

00:16:34.000 –> 00:16:39.480
They had said that one of the ways a lot of people are trying to save money nowadays is when they go out to a

00:16:39.480 –> 00:16:40.880

00:16:40.880 –> 00:16:42.880
They actually will

00:16:42.880 –> 00:16:48.320
Will order water a water with lemon to save money, which that’s healthy for you, too

00:16:48.320 –> 00:16:50.640
That means better than obviously fountain sodas or anything like that

00:16:50.640 –> 00:16:53.980
But they said that’s a very popular way people are trying to save money right now

00:16:53.980 –> 00:17:00.920
Is by ordering fountain soda by ordering water and lemon instead of fountain sodas

00:17:01.160 –> 00:17:04.080
So that’s that’s always a good way. I will say this though

00:17:04.080 –> 00:17:06.200
That’s good to do once in a while

00:17:06.200 –> 00:17:09.920
But if you’re gonna keep going to a restaurant keep doing that eventually they are gonna charge you for the water

00:17:09.920 –> 00:17:16.640
And then you can see charge me for water. What are you talking about? But in Europe, they actually do charge for water

00:17:16.640 –> 00:17:18.800
I know it sounds crazy, but it’s a real thing

00:17:18.800 –> 00:17:21.360
In Europe, they actually do

00:17:21.360 –> 00:17:24.480
Charge you for water some restaurants too, by the way

00:17:24.480 –> 00:17:26.680
One of the other things they said that you cannot if you’re not too hungry

00:17:27.360 –> 00:17:34.280
You get a large dish and split it with the person the only problem with that is at a fancy restaurant if you do that

00:17:34.280 –> 00:17:39.840
There is usually a plate fee of a few dollars. I know that sounds crazy. You’re like, where are you living? But

00:17:39.840 –> 00:17:45.280
In Europe and some places fancy restaurants more on the East Coast

00:17:45.280 –> 00:17:50.100
There actually is a plate charge if you get a large meal and split it

00:17:50.100 –> 00:17:54.680
They will actually charge your play fee. So some of these money tips work

00:17:56.240 –> 00:17:58.240
But you know

00:17:58.240 –> 00:18:03.660
Not if people you know problem is these money tips work great

00:18:03.660 –> 00:18:06.360
But the problem is if too many people start doing them that people are going to start

00:18:06.360 –> 00:18:08.680
you know

00:18:08.680 –> 00:18:12.200
Start getting, you know, they do even start getting around and people aren’t making place aren’t making money

00:18:12.200 –> 00:18:17.240
Then obviously people are gonna you know, do you know do away with it? So very important there

00:18:17.240 –> 00:18:20.800
Obviously we all River

00:18:20.800 –> 00:18:27.480
Couponing couponing is still a thing but I remember you had extreme couponing where people would go into CVS and walk out with like

00:18:27.480 –> 00:18:29.880
$100 worth of stuff for like nine bucks

00:18:29.880 –> 00:18:32.440

00:18:32.440 –> 00:18:37.400
You know that was what that worked out great for a while but

00:18:37.400 –> 00:18:43.480
Problem was after a while these stores like CVS and stuff like that started to get wind of it

00:18:43.480 –> 00:18:48.760
And then they started with the oh, you can’t use this coupon with this. You can’t use this with this

00:18:48.760 –> 00:18:50.760
You can’t use this with that

00:18:50.760 –> 00:18:53.200
That’s when all that started that was all because of that

00:18:53.200 –> 00:18:56.200
except you know extreme

00:18:56.200 –> 00:18:59.260
Couponing thing so

00:18:59.260 –> 00:19:01.920
Just you know, that’s the problem with these things

00:19:01.920 –> 00:19:06.720
Why don’t you start figuring these that this what you’re figuring out the system works people start, you know on

00:19:06.720 –> 00:19:09.680
You know on you know kind of undoing it, you know

00:19:09.680 –> 00:19:13.280
So, you know in place you got to make money get it especially with the cost of inflation

00:19:13.280 –> 00:19:17.820
You know, it’s great for you to save money at a restaurant not so good for the restaurant owner

00:19:17.820 –> 00:19:19.820
Do you always look at it from both sides?

00:19:19.820 –> 00:19:26.840
But so many other things interesting and I didn’t some of these things in this podcast. I didn’t even realize even think about

00:19:26.840 –> 00:19:30.020
first of all

00:19:30.020 –> 00:19:31.740
You had

00:19:31.740 –> 00:19:34.660
The app egg corn you guys you’ve probably heard of it

00:19:34.660 –> 00:19:39.200
If you actually anything anything that you anytime you buy something online

00:19:39.200 –> 00:19:47.800
the change or and stuff like that gets put away into an account and this way you get that’s how you start saving money and

00:19:48.160 –> 00:19:50.320
I’m not a big fan of that one personally

00:19:50.320 –> 00:19:57.560
Some other tips that I think is a great idea I actually heard about this one from Steve Harvey

00:19:57.560 –> 00:20:03.600
If you actually every day when you get home open up your wallet if you can now a lot of you don’t carry cash anymore

00:20:03.600 –> 00:20:09.480
but if you do open up your wallet or whatever and take whatever singles or dollar bills you have and

00:20:09.480 –> 00:20:14.320
Put them in an envelope or wrap them up in a little wad or whatever

00:20:14.720 –> 00:20:19.920
In your sock drawer or whatever you’re drawing next to your bed and every time you have singles

00:20:19.920 –> 00:20:27.780
Do that and over the course of a year watch how many singles you accrue and you’ll be surprised how much money

00:20:27.780 –> 00:20:35.000
You have in that little pack. I know it sounds crazy. My grandmother used to do that. I thought it was nuts too

00:20:35.000 –> 00:20:37.400
until I

00:20:37.400 –> 00:20:40.360
Actually saw him a couple hundred dollars in there and one I’m like, holy cow

00:20:40.360 –> 00:20:43.180
So that’s an interesting trick

00:20:44.600 –> 00:20:48.120
There’s some other there was some other cost-saving stuff people pointed out to

00:20:48.120 –> 00:20:56.040
You go you go to restaurants when there’s specials that’s a pretty good one you gotta watch those sometimes the specials are

00:20:56.040 –> 00:21:02.600
Aren’t always a deal. It sounds like it was not always but if you have to go to restaurant specials, that’s always a good idea

00:21:02.600 –> 00:21:10.120
Some of the ideas for this podcast I have on my that I have are not the greatest but they were some decent ideas

00:21:11.240 –> 00:21:15.000
Somebody said eat before you go to a restaurant this way you bring home leftovers

00:21:15.000 –> 00:21:19.200
But I mean that’s not really you bring it up. We should bring home the leftovers Nina for lunch the next day

00:21:19.200 –> 00:21:21.760
That’s a big money saver right my wife and I both do that

00:21:21.760 –> 00:21:23.360

00:21:23.360 –> 00:21:25.560
And we’re gonna eat for you to restaurant kind of here

00:21:25.560 –> 00:21:29.640
Either way you’re paying for the food you eat whether you bought it at a grocery store whether you’re eating at your so pay

00:21:29.640 –> 00:21:32.700
So I don’t I don’t know like that. I’m going out to a restaurant. I want to eat

00:21:32.700 –> 00:21:36.800
I’m not gonna say, you know, I I don’t know about that one. I don’t agree with that one

00:21:37.840 –> 00:21:43.680
Let’s see some of the other ones that we had here a lot of good a lot of good mother’s some good might some

00:21:43.680 –> 00:21:47.440
They said, you know, look at the menu before you go out

00:21:47.440 –> 00:21:50.140
So, you know what you’re getting into I do agree with that

00:21:50.140 –> 00:21:55.420
If you go into a restaurant that you’ve never been to before I would pull the rest of the menu up and see what the prices

00:21:55.420 –> 00:21:58.660
Are just to make sure you know, you don’t want to you know, if you’re going to a place

00:21:58.660 –> 00:22:02.020
That’s you may not want to go to a place for a casual dinner with your wife

00:22:02.020 –> 00:22:06.520
That you know is something that you would do on an anniversary in the sense of you know

00:22:06.520 –> 00:22:08.520
On an anniversary you may spend a little more

00:22:08.520 –> 00:22:10.640
But if you’re just going out

00:22:10.640 –> 00:22:12.920
You know for a quick meal

00:22:12.920 –> 00:22:16.100
You know, you know, maybe not want to spend that much so

00:22:16.100 –> 00:22:21.840
That’s one the one thing I do with people all time is a lot of you say well go to fast food because it’s cheap

00:22:21.840 –> 00:22:25.160
You have to watch that one one and I know it’s for sure

00:22:25.160 –> 00:22:30.000
It’s one obviously fast food isn’t good for you puts weight on you. So well health-wise. It’s not great for you

00:22:30.000 –> 00:22:31.360
but the other thing to

00:22:31.360 –> 00:22:35.600
Fast food places aren’t really the bargain bin. They used to be years ago

00:22:36.280 –> 00:22:38.560
You know nowadays you go to you go to

00:22:38.560 –> 00:22:41.480
McDonald’s you can spend $40

00:22:41.480 –> 00:22:45.320
that could buy you, you know a couple slightly I could buy you two pies and

00:22:45.320 –> 00:22:53.300
You know in your in your own hungry after so that’s you gotta watch those fast food is used to be the bargains

00:22:53.300 –> 00:22:58.280
Really not anymore fast food isn’t cheap anymore. It’s fast, but it’s not cheap

00:22:58.280 –> 00:23:03.400
You know and the old saying well you pay for convenience, but it’s it’s it’s not you know

00:23:03.400 –> 00:23:06.560
It’s it’s becoming things have changed a lot with that

00:23:06.560 –> 00:23:13.160
Some of the some of the some of the cost-saving tips that people do I’m like I said don’t always agree with

00:23:13.160 –> 00:23:17.120
This one actually though I liked

00:23:17.120 –> 00:23:23.640
If you go to a place that allows that allows dollar refills go there. So places like 7-eleven

00:23:23.640 –> 00:23:28.100
I think Exxon, I don’t know if Exxon did away with it, but 7-eleven still have it

00:23:30.240 –> 00:23:36.520
If you you could bring any size mug you want in and fill it for a dollar for coffee in the morning

00:23:36.520 –> 00:23:40.920
Now I know myself. I’d rather brew my own at home just because I’m very picky about coffee

00:23:40.920 –> 00:23:44.440
But that is something by the way, that is actually not a bad

00:23:44.440 –> 00:23:48.840
Money saving tip if you are gonna go get coffee bring your own cup

00:23:48.840 –> 00:23:51.860
Like I said, that is a that’s a good idea

00:23:51.860 –> 00:23:53.480
That’s also true

00:23:53.480 –> 00:23:57.880
If you remember the cup if you keep wasting the cups and forgetting to bring them home like I do then you’re wasting money

00:23:57.880 –> 00:23:59.400
So you got to watch

00:23:59.400 –> 00:24:01.120

00:24:01.120 –> 00:24:04.160
That was a good good money saving tip. I liked that one

00:24:04.160 –> 00:24:07.740
There was a couple a couple of good ones that were there

00:24:07.740 –> 00:24:14.560
Obviously, I always tell everybody start an IRA account to save money. I know people say to me all the time

00:24:14.560 –> 00:24:18.480
It was starting an IRA. You don’t need a lot of money to start an IRA

00:24:18.480 –> 00:24:23.960
You could start it with with with $20 a month being taken out of your paycheck. Just start it

00:24:23.960 –> 00:24:28.400
I tell everybody that if you’re gonna start an IRA just start it

00:24:28.680 –> 00:24:33.800
It doesn’t matter if you don’t like a lot of people I can only afford $20 $25 a month. That’s fine

00:24:33.800 –> 00:24:41.240
You can be going to 450 whatever just start it and you will be amazed how much $25 or $50 a month could

00:24:41.240 –> 00:24:45.480
Can build up over the course of years and years and years years have it automatically

00:24:45.480 –> 00:24:50.000
I tell us everybody have it automatically it taken right out of your checking account

00:24:50.000 –> 00:24:52.640
so you don’t

00:24:52.640 –> 00:24:57.700
You know, so you don’t like kids cuz if you’re gonna put money away some months, you know

00:24:57.700 –> 00:25:00.320
You’ll forget about it or I didn’t do something like that, you know always

00:25:00.320 –> 00:25:04.320
You know always

00:25:04.320 –> 00:25:08.640
Just have it automatically taken out because you may not be that disciplined to put it away from us

00:25:08.640 –> 00:25:13.240
We’re having a tight month. If it’s automatically comes out of your account is automatically gone. That’s it’s like, you know

00:25:13.240 –> 00:25:18.640
It’s like a bill so I tell everybody I’m taking out because some people are not disciplined enough to put money away themselves

00:25:18.640 –> 00:25:26.660
Another cost saving tip which I actually thought of myself I was kind of proud of this one what I tell everybody to do

00:25:27.100 –> 00:25:29.100
Is if you want to save money

00:25:29.100 –> 00:25:32.920
And we’re talking like I said, I’m talking, you know trim

00:25:32.920 –> 00:25:35.800
And again, I’m not telling you to cancel things you like or not do things you do

00:25:35.800 –> 00:25:41.160
I’m just saying about little cost savings things that you can do try to help you stretch a couple dollars

00:25:41.160 –> 00:25:46.200
Especially in this economy. I tell everybody this if you want us to even want to save money

00:25:46.200 –> 00:25:52.000
All your streaming services get the ones with the ads included. I know you can say wait. What are you talking about?

00:25:52.200 –> 00:25:59.540
Yes, because like HBO is $15 without the ads, but it’s $9.99 with the ads. That’s $5 right there. You’re saving every month

00:25:59.540 –> 00:26:03.900
You know then say you have say Hulu. That’s another one

00:26:03.900 –> 00:26:07.880
You know, you drop it down the one with the ads at a $15. It’s $9.99. That’s fine

00:26:07.880 –> 00:26:11.280
That’s $10 a month. Now you have saved in your checking account

00:26:11.280 –> 00:26:14.800
Right there and all and yes, you’re gonna have to sit through a couple of ads

00:26:14.800 –> 00:26:21.140
But you know what you’re saving money my wife and I purposely some of those services. We don’t use like peacock and

00:26:21.780 –> 00:26:23.780
Hulu the ones we don’t use as much

00:26:23.780 –> 00:26:26.680
We’ve gone to the ad supported versions

00:26:26.680 –> 00:26:32.500
Netflix you gotta watch Netflix kind of is tricky with that stuff because if you dropped out of the ad support

00:26:32.500 –> 00:26:33.920
You also lose how many screens you could have

00:26:33.920 –> 00:26:35.880
So that’s if you have any questions about that stuff

00:26:35.880 –> 00:26:39.600
I can really walk you through that cuz I’ve been trusty when I tell you I mean I’m in technology

00:26:39.600 –> 00:26:46.000
I’ve gone through all these things from beginning to end left to right and I could tell you I have tried to figure this out

00:26:47.760 –> 00:26:51.760
Some other cost saving chips believe believe and I know you’re gonna look really I’m nuts

00:26:51.760 –> 00:26:58.120
Walmart Plus is a cost saver and the reason why I say this is I’m only do you get Walmart Plus?

00:26:58.120 –> 00:27:05.380
You also get ten cents off at all exons for your when you get gas. You also get Paramount Plus for free

00:27:05.380 –> 00:27:09.820
So if you are paying for a month plus you get you get a Walmart Plus you get Paramount for free

00:27:09.820 –> 00:27:15.200
I need you’re saving money on gas and you’re getting free ship free shipping and all your orders. So again

00:27:15.820 –> 00:27:17.820
Again, the little thing like that

00:27:17.820 –> 00:27:21.880
Could save you, you know money in three different ways

00:27:21.880 –> 00:27:27.820
So again, there’s a little little cost saving things like this you’d be surprised how much you you know

00:27:27.820 –> 00:27:33.660
One thing I’ve talked about this to my wife is it’s very very hard to cut

00:27:33.660 –> 00:27:38.980
Big bills you can’t cut back. I mean you could try to cut back on your heat

00:27:38.980 –> 00:27:42.260
You can try to cut back in your electric you can you know

00:27:42.400 –> 00:27:47.640
But but the cable and an online service that those are the places you can try to cut

00:27:47.640 –> 00:27:53.200
You know so that and that’s what you have to do you have to try to cut where you can

00:27:53.200 –> 00:27:57.820
Like I said very important though is the

00:27:57.820 –> 00:28:03.960
Is these little look little itty-bitty little things can add up to a big thing

00:28:03.960 –> 00:28:08.860
Like I said prime example if you want to save money on you want in your streaming services

00:28:08.860 –> 00:28:12.260
I’m not telling you have to get rid of any of them if you can there’s ones you don’t watch

00:28:12.260 –> 00:28:14.120
You get rid of them. That’ll save you a couple bucks a month

00:28:14.120 –> 00:28:19.380
But the big key for me is is if you cut back to the ones with the ad you still have them and you’re still

00:28:19.380 –> 00:28:22.040
Saving a little money so you can pitch pennies that way

00:28:22.040 –> 00:28:27.140
Also too if you want to try to save save money

00:28:27.140 –> 00:28:30.980
I know it’s an absolute expense at the beginning

00:28:30.980 –> 00:28:34.300
But I’ve noticed significant cost savings over the years with it

00:28:34.300 –> 00:28:40.680
My wife and I we purposely went with the those switches that plug the hookup to the internet

00:28:40.680 –> 00:28:43.640
And I know a lot of people like you don’t like those things

00:28:43.640 –> 00:28:46.720
But I will tell you this when you got out you got two kids that

00:28:46.720 –> 00:28:51.520
And I don’t care how good a prep you are how many times are your kids your kids always leave lights on with a small?

00:28:51.520 –> 00:28:56.740
How many times my wife will be up in our bedroom and see one of the lights downstairs on you know?

00:28:56.740 –> 00:29:00.880
On and we won’t see it from our bedroom, but because we have the app and she watched it

00:29:00.880 –> 00:29:02.880
We’ll see it will turn off lights, and I bet you

00:29:02.880 –> 00:29:06.140
probably over the course of last year or two I

00:29:06.820 –> 00:29:13.900
Bet you less I bet you at least we save at least $20 a month because I’ll be sitting up at night in my bed

00:29:13.900 –> 00:29:19.460
Hey, why are all the lights downstairs up when everybody’s upstairs turn them off or my wife will see you know a couple lights left

00:29:19.460 –> 00:29:22.540
On we’re not in the room so terrible so I know it sounds crazy

00:29:22.540 –> 00:29:29.140
But you will you be surprised how much money you’ll save also to if you have a forced hot air system

00:29:29.140 –> 00:29:36.580
Or any system that’s ran by a thermostat you get the internet-based thermostats those things are the best

00:29:36.980 –> 00:29:42.180
When it comes to saving money, I know they’re like $200 to buy, but I will tell you long term

00:29:42.180 –> 00:29:44.480
I definitely see the cost savings

00:29:44.480 –> 00:29:47.440
You know when we are when we’re not home

00:29:47.440 –> 00:29:52.940
You know we turn the heat down, and you know a couple you know we could turn if we’re not gonna be home

00:29:52.940 –> 00:29:57.180
We turn the heat off and then at night if it’s gonna cold. We’ll turn it up

00:29:57.180 –> 00:30:02.220
You know this way we’re not leaving the heat on all day. You know we leave and you know say oh

00:30:02.220 –> 00:30:05.380
It’s gonna be cold tonight. We’re gonna leave the heat on well. No it’s hot during the day

00:30:05.380 –> 00:30:06.700
Let’s it’s warm during the day

00:30:06.700 –> 00:30:11.460
Let’s leave the heat off and then as long as we remember I set an alarm on my watch on my phone and oh

00:30:11.460 –> 00:30:15.300
Okay, it’s four o’clock starting to get cold. We need to turn the heat on the house now

00:30:15.300 –> 00:30:17.620
I’ve stayed five six seven hours of

00:30:17.620 –> 00:30:20.580
heat or electric

00:30:20.580 –> 00:30:24.360
You know when you know it

00:30:24.360 –> 00:30:27.060
You’d be surprised how much it adds up

00:30:27.060 –> 00:30:30.460
Also to some little things as well motion lights

00:30:30.460 –> 00:30:34.500
Instead of leaving you know you leave for the house you leave the light on or something that no

00:30:34.700 –> 00:30:37.260
You get an emotion light or a light you could turn on with your phone

00:30:37.260 –> 00:30:41.140
You’d be surprised how much electric you’re saving also to

00:30:41.140 –> 00:30:46.020
Using LEDs LED lights. I know a lot of people don’t like the way it looks

00:30:46.020 –> 00:30:50.340
But it really can LEDs especially can seriously

00:30:50.340 –> 00:30:53.380
Bring your electric bill down a few dollars every month

00:30:53.380 –> 00:30:58.980
You know nothing and I’m not saying go out right now and swap every bulb you have in the house for LEDs or energy efficiency

00:30:58.980 –> 00:31:00.980
What I’m saying is when that bulb goes

00:31:01.820 –> 00:31:05.740
Maybe you swap it out for an energy efficient or an LED. I’m not like I said

00:31:05.740 –> 00:31:09.340
This is not something you’re gonna do and say okay. Well. I bought two hundred dollars with bulbs

00:31:09.340 –> 00:31:12.520
Let me watch my electric bill tomorrow come down. No what’s gonna happen is

00:31:12.520 –> 00:31:18.720
You know that bulb pops you’re gonna change it out for an efficient that other bulb pops. You’re gonna change it out for an efficient

00:31:18.720 –> 00:31:21.440
You know that that light switch

00:31:21.440 –> 00:31:26.460
It’s gets you know loose in the wall, and you think it’s or it’s giving you a problem so that you’re gonna swap it here

00:31:26.460 –> 00:31:28.460
It’s not gonna happen overnight

00:31:29.140 –> 00:31:35.260
But you’ll be surprised how much those little things can really save you

00:31:35.260 –> 00:31:37.780
that much

00:31:37.780 –> 00:31:39.660
electric and that much energy

00:31:39.660 –> 00:31:41.780
especially with the cost of it going up that’s

00:31:41.780 –> 00:31:47.140
because that’s what upsets me and and I pointed this out to my wife before she had saw our our

00:31:47.140 –> 00:31:50.260
gas bill and some of that she had said you know all stuff

00:31:50.260 –> 00:31:54.700
We’ve done the insulation on and the gas thought still a little bit high

00:31:54.700 –> 00:31:58.260
I said yes, but you can understand the prices have gone up so

00:31:58.780 –> 00:32:03.700
The price would have been much more like we compare our gas bill from last year to this year

00:32:03.700 –> 00:32:08.940
You could see it substantially you know it’s about the same

00:32:08.940 –> 00:32:15.280
That’s because the prices went up and I mean so our state the price going up did chew up all of our savings

00:32:15.280 –> 00:32:17.660
but the price

00:32:17.660 –> 00:32:24.300
You know being about the same as last year just shows you how much more efficient the house is because

00:32:24.300 –> 00:32:27.660
You know if not it would have been much much higher, so

00:32:28.500 –> 00:32:34.380
Again, these are not like I said these are you know little little things the other thing too

00:32:34.380 –> 00:32:36.980
And I want to point that we want to point this out and I didn’t

00:32:36.980 –> 00:32:40.780
Something personally that my wife, and I did over the last couple years

00:32:40.780 –> 00:32:45.380
That I do notice a difference in the way the household heat and air conditioning

00:32:45.380 –> 00:32:52.120
We do have a wood stove. We do use propane for backup, but we do have a wood stove and one of the things

00:32:52.120 –> 00:32:54.120
We have done this year especially

00:32:54.540 –> 00:32:59.100
Is all a lot almost all the house every time we’ve had to do something with a window

00:32:59.100 –> 00:33:01.100
I’ve replaced it with a double pane

00:33:01.100 –> 00:33:07.660
Or them or the much better windows any of you have older homes, and you have those single pane windows

00:33:07.660 –> 00:33:10.900
They do not hold heat well at all

00:33:10.900 –> 00:33:16.360
What you could do is put a storm window on the outside that’ll help hold the heat as well

00:33:16.360 –> 00:33:20.440
But if you do if you have any old house with old windows

00:33:20.620 –> 00:33:25.100
I really recommend either putting storm windows on if you can

00:33:25.100 –> 00:33:32.160
Or if you can as the windows break or something that replace them with a good quality double pane window

00:33:32.160 –> 00:33:35.140
Just because it will save you

00:33:35.140 –> 00:33:37.820
that much money on

00:33:37.820 –> 00:33:42.820
In the long run, and I know you know that sounds like well the windows

00:33:42.820 –> 00:33:48.260
I’ve had these single pit, but those single pane windows even and I mean the storm windows will help

00:33:49.140 –> 00:33:54.920
Then the storm windows are pretty cheap you can get them like you can get them relatively reasonable, but those single pane windows

00:33:54.920 –> 00:33:58.620
Just do not hold the heat in

00:33:58.620 –> 00:34:01.460
that the

00:34:01.460 –> 00:34:05.980
The the double panes and all that they just don’t and plus too. They’re a lot safer

00:34:05.980 –> 00:34:09.780
They don’t break as easily stuff like that. They’re just safer as well, but

00:34:09.780 –> 00:34:13.180
And you’re not dealing with those little ropes we all any of us have old homes

00:34:13.180 –> 00:34:17.140
Know about those little ropes that you deal with and the weights and oh

00:34:17.140 –> 00:34:21.780
I mean I know that’s what they had back then but man. Oh man were they painted the butt back then

00:34:21.780 –> 00:34:27.400
Those old we had them in one of my in a home that we that grew up in and all the time you have to

00:34:27.400 –> 00:34:30.620
Fix the weight and all I can’t wait was in the wall and sometimes you couldn’t yet

00:34:30.620 –> 00:34:32.620
They cut a little stick to hold the wind oh

00:34:32.620 –> 00:34:37.480
And let me tell you when we went to my parents went with all double pane windows

00:34:37.480 –> 00:34:42.620
I’m telling you that the amount of heat that we saved in the house was

00:34:44.180 –> 00:34:50.080
Was unbelievable, but like I said I really recommend that if you like is it any of you guys listening right now?

00:34:50.080 –> 00:34:55.260
Again those little any any little cost savings like that

00:34:55.260 –> 00:34:58.220
You know is unbelievable

00:34:58.220 –> 00:35:04.580
Especially with energy costs because it’s all gonna keep going up and up and up. I have feeling worth just no end in sight to

00:35:04.580 –> 00:35:09.360
To this I have a gut feeling we’re gonna be dealing with higher energy prices

00:35:10.420 –> 00:35:17.180
For quite some time, and I don’t see the price going down below three dollars a gallon anytime soon. I just don’t see it

00:35:17.180 –> 00:35:22.380
But like I said of and that’s unfortunate, but I just

00:35:22.380 –> 00:35:27.980
Everybody that’s the biggest thing I get people say my time when you think your energy is gonna go down well not for a while

00:35:27.980 –> 00:35:29.980
I don’t think unfortunately

00:35:29.980 –> 00:35:32.380
But like but like I said you know it’s one

00:35:32.380 –> 00:35:37.780
It’s one of those things where if you start now and do a little bit every time and do a little at a time

00:35:37.980 –> 00:35:44.740
You’ll see over over time the price. You know what I mean to the print. You know you’ll see yourself saving money

00:35:44.740 –> 00:35:49.160
You’ll see yourself. You know cutting back. You’ll see money being in your IRA

00:35:49.160 –> 00:35:53.980
You’ll see you have extra money in the clock in the in the drawer and all that kind of stuff so

00:35:53.980 –> 00:35:59.880
That’s you know. It’s it’s one of those things. It’s you know it. You’re not gonna see it overnight

00:35:59.880 –> 00:36:05.480
But it takes time, but you know if you don’t start putting away money. You you know now you know you can’t yeah

00:36:05.480 –> 00:36:07.540
Yeah, you have to start sometime

00:36:07.760 –> 00:36:10.520
You know and I have many of my friends tell me all the time well

00:36:10.520 –> 00:36:15.500
I’m gonna you know I’ll worry about retirement when I get there yeah retirement doesn’t really work that way

00:36:15.500 –> 00:36:18.220
You got to start putting away now for later

00:36:18.220 –> 00:36:24.780
Especially with the way, they’re saying Social Security is gonna be bankrupt in what by now what are they saying 30?

00:36:24.780 –> 00:36:29.960
What 20 35 now they’re saying, but they’ve been saying that for years. I am trust me

00:36:29.960 –> 00:36:31.960
That’s always a way to scare people they’ve been saying that

00:36:32.740 –> 00:36:37.500
Forever really and I’m not lying they really have been saying that forever that Social Security is gonna

00:36:37.500 –> 00:36:39.820
Go Bank or Social Security’s gonna go. I mean they’ve been saying it for years

00:36:39.820 –> 00:36:44.820
I mean eventually probably may but but they’ve been saying that for a long time now

00:36:44.820 –> 00:36:47.460
And like I said just remember

00:36:47.460 –> 00:36:51.960
You know you got to start you have to start putting away money sometime and even if it’s ten dollars a week

00:36:51.960 –> 00:36:58.920
Or ten dollars a month you just have to start and once you start it. You’ll be surprised how quickly you know that grows

00:36:59.460 –> 00:37:05.600
But the money saving is and money savings hard especially now with the way the economy is and that way

00:37:05.600 –> 00:37:08.780
Everything’s going up. You know and the rising costs

00:37:08.780 –> 00:37:15.740
It’s getting harder and harder to put away money because more and more of our money is needed for everything especially with this

00:37:15.740 –> 00:37:19.860
supply chain issue cost of you know car repair cost of

00:37:19.860 –> 00:37:25.580
Repairing anything a general the cost of repaying anything whether it’s a vehicle a house and appliance

00:37:26.300 –> 00:37:30.880
It’s all gone up, and and that’s when and unfortunately

00:37:30.880 –> 00:37:35.780
You know there’s there’s no that’s out of our control as

00:37:35.780 –> 00:37:38.780
as the consumer

00:37:38.780 –> 00:37:44.700
And even even as a prepper you can’t control the cost of what it’s going to be

00:37:44.700 –> 00:37:47.420

00:37:47.420 –> 00:37:53.220
You know what the cost apart you just can’t control it you can’t control how much an alternator is gonna cause you can’t control

00:37:53.520 –> 00:37:57.380
How much that battery in your truck is gonna? I mean you we just can’t I mean

00:37:57.380 –> 00:38:00.280
We can replace it on our own to save money on the labor

00:38:00.280 –> 00:38:04.460
But the cost of the part we have no control over it’s all due to the supply chain stuff

00:38:04.460 –> 00:38:08.400
Well one other thing too. I wanted to plug about I had on my little list here

00:38:08.400 –> 00:38:11.100
And things I want to talk about costing wise

00:38:11.100 –> 00:38:15.620
Somebody had said an older woman had said this to me actually the other day

00:38:15.620 –> 00:38:18.820
In a line at a store, and I wanted to remember this for the podcast

00:38:18.820 –> 00:38:22.660
I wrote it down actually one of the things she had said to me money-saving tip

00:38:23.300 –> 00:38:24.920
Is she said?

00:38:24.920 –> 00:38:30.560
Use hang your clothes outside on the wash line and don’t use the dryer

00:38:30.560 –> 00:38:32.780
and I thought that was actually a pretty good tip because

00:38:32.780 –> 00:38:37.280
Maybe and even to be I mean we have an electric dryer, but even if a gas dryer

00:38:37.280 –> 00:38:41.400
It’s still costing you gas also that was a good little tip

00:38:41.400 –> 00:38:46.760
She was a nice lady, and she had I was telling her I was talking about her coma cost-saving tips

00:38:46.760 –> 00:38:50.320
Was so grateful she gave me and I you know gave me some ideas

00:38:50.320 –> 00:38:54.260
But when she said that I said I had never that’s one thing I never thought about my wife and I

00:38:54.260 –> 00:38:57.260
I’ve were bad about that. We really use a clothesline that much

00:38:57.260 –> 00:38:59.780
It’s just we usually use a dryer

00:38:59.780 –> 00:39:06.140
But that was a neat idea something I had never even thought of was using a clothesline because this way then you’re not using the

00:39:06.140 –> 00:39:09.780
Dryer so in the stairs, then it’s something to do in the winter obviously at the colds of that

00:39:09.780 –> 00:39:13.780
But I in the summer hang the clothes out on a line or on the deck

00:39:13.780 –> 00:39:20.000
Rather than using the dryer in the summer, and it’ll save you some electric so I thought that was a good idea as well

00:39:20.980 –> 00:39:23.720
I think it was any um and by the way there

00:39:23.720 –> 00:39:27.240
I want to point out there are some things too that are not as efficient as we think they are

00:39:27.240 –> 00:39:29.760
Somebody pointed out to me the other day

00:39:29.760 –> 00:39:32.200

00:39:32.200 –> 00:39:36.400
If you want to save money wash your dishes by hand that’s actually not always true

00:39:36.400 –> 00:39:40.720
Believe it or not washing your dishes by hand so that’s actually cost you more water and

00:39:40.720 –> 00:39:46.120
While the water itself isn’t for is that well depends on where you live if you’re in the city you’re paying for water

00:39:46.600 –> 00:39:50.860
But if you’re in the and if you’re in the country with a well you’re paying for the water to get pumped up

00:39:50.860 –> 00:39:52.700
but the electric so

00:39:52.700 –> 00:39:56.960
Sometimes it actually is more efficient to use the dishwasher. I wanted to point that out

00:39:56.960 –> 00:40:01.520
There were like I said there are certain things that aren’t as efficient if you have a hot water tank

00:40:01.520 –> 00:40:04.120
If you’re gonna boil water you’re not saving money

00:40:04.120 –> 00:40:09.840
You’re spending it on either way you’re spending way to heat water whether you boil it or whether you use the hot water tank

00:40:09.840 –> 00:40:15.640
So that’s that’s not really cost savings little things like that. You’re not really saving money also to folks. I just want to mention

00:40:16.360 –> 00:40:18.160
before we go

00:40:18.160 –> 00:40:23.320
My social channel rebel social media. It’s a mastodon instance

00:40:23.320 –> 00:40:27.760
It’s like a Twitter kind of knockoff thing and it’s really fun. I moderate it

00:40:27.760 –> 00:40:33.380
It’s a good time a lot of good people in there and like I said if you want to interact and hang out with me

00:40:33.380 –> 00:40:38.700
To rebel social media also shoot folks. I also to a stream on Twitch

00:40:38.700 –> 00:40:42.640
Quite a bit. I’m on play games like Call of Duty PUBG

00:40:43.400 –> 00:40:46.960
All that stuff you can find out when I’m gaming or streaming all that

00:40:46.960 –> 00:40:54.080
Again through the social channel rebel social media. I don’t sell any data or anything like that. It’s just kind of a little fun

00:40:54.080 –> 00:40:56.320
Server I stood up

00:40:56.320 –> 00:40:58.320
About a couple months ago when I started the podcast

00:40:58.320 –> 00:41:02.320
They could be a place where I can interact and hang out with you guys

00:41:02.320 –> 00:41:08.360
And I’ve met a lot of people also to like I said, I also mentioned it a lot to sort of gamers

00:41:08.360 –> 00:41:10.200
There’s some gamers in there

00:41:10.200 –> 00:41:13.840
Preppers we talk, you know, we do talk politics sometimes in there

00:41:13.840 –> 00:41:17.120
But it’s kind of whatever we all feel like talking about like it’s like Twitter

00:41:17.120 –> 00:41:23.720
So it’s more it’s a really open platform and it’s a lot of fun and I appreciate if you join it again rebel social

00:41:23.720 –> 00:41:25.960
Media, like I said, it doesn’t cost anything

00:41:25.960 –> 00:41:29.740
It’s just a great place for me to hang out and get to interact with you guys

00:41:29.740 –> 00:41:32.720
And here I know it’s a little bit of shorter podcast than we normally do every week

00:41:32.720 –> 00:41:36.680
But like I said, I am traveling this week. I did want to at least get get a show out

00:41:36.680 –> 00:41:41.720
I want to thank everybody for listening and we will see you on the next episode. Thank you very much
