If you have the room, I’d say go for it. Some people don’t even have space in the house for a bigger sofa, let alone a gym. Having a mini workout room in your own house would be the ultimate luxury. However, you would have to make sure you had home insurance as gym equipment can be very expensive. Having the chance to just pop downstairs for a quick run or to do some weights in the comfort of your own house is priceless. No more gym fees or sharing equipment with strangers!
Anyway, Harry may have a point with his goal of getting the biggest house possible in our price range, even though we are 2 people. Five bedroom house? Bring it on, that means 2 bedrooms to fill with detergent, canned goods, and gatorade. (The other 2 spare bedrooms will be an internetting room [aka office] and a spare room [for when people are guilted into staying with us]) Maybe this is what Harry was thinking all along.
Besides being fascinated with the Extreme Couponers, I am also fascinated by the coupon cutting services that people pay them for cutting coupons and mailing them out. What an easy job that would be for your unruly kids who are bored during the summer. Sure, their hands may pass as stunt doubles for the witch’s hands in Snow White, but you just made $70 for 3 hours of their work. You go Glen Coco*!
Since this blog is filled with life lessons, what is the major thing me and you, dear reader, can take away from ladies who spend 40-60 hours a week cutting/organizing coupons? The fact that we need to get off our lazy butts and start clipping that money, laundering-style. Coupons are basically free money after all, and who hates money? Gnarly hands (mine especially since I am left-handed and have right-handed scissors, scissor handle ‘contours’ are pretty painful when they are going the opposite way), here I come.
