“World’s Most Expensive Cities 2011”

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Independent Real Estate Broker DRE#00972295

This “article” appeared in Bloomberg BusinessWeek: “The city that earns the dubious honor of being the most expensive for holders of U.S. dollars is Tokyo, a rank it also enjoyed last year. How expensive is it? How about $24 for a movie ticket and nearly $11 for a beer.”

This is my simpletons view point: Don’t go to Tokyo, don’t drink their beer and don’t see their movies! lol!

Stay home, go to your local theater or rent it, and buy domestic beer, better yet make your own beer...lol!

This article will be filed in: “the useless” file. Next!

What’s your advice on how to save money? I’m a very frugal person and love hearing ways to save money.

Even those small things. For instance, I got rid of my texting on my phone. I don’t like to text! I didn’t use it and I find it dangerous. I was paying 20 bucks for a service I didn’t use. Twenty bucks may not sound like a lot, but when it’s being wasted, it’s just stupid. $20 Xs 12 MO = 240 Xs 5 YRS = $1,200... I think I will take my $1,200 and buy stocks in some "phone" company!

Start to add all those little insignificant expenses and you could end up saving more than you think. I don’t have cable that gives me 300 channels, I have the basic. Really! who can watch all those useless 300 channels?

This is just my opinion. What’s yours?

LIked what you said about Tokyo it made me smile. As to saving, Just look at those coupons yo get from all the stores and buy the non necessities, or maybe even some of the necessities when they go on sale

Intersesting about Tokyo.  My texting is free which is great.  It is so important to not overpay no matter how much money you have. Televsion is one way to save as there are so many offers. How about home phone and using an internet service for phone saves a ton.

I can't imagine not texting...  hmm... well my texting is free and unlimited with my plan, so I guess that is why I use it so much. I agree, though, we recently cut back to the basics on our dishnet, because there were just way too many channels that were never watched! Have a great weekend~Jennifer the IHI Home Inspections girl
