These Four Mind Tricks Will Save You Money During the Holidays

These Four Mind Tricks Will Save You Money During the Holidays

It’s crunch time for gift buying. Here are four mind tricks that will help you spend less during the last-minute rush.

1. Use the “10-second” rule. Whenever you’re about to buy something, hold it for ten seconds and ask yourself if you really need it or if that money could be better used on something else.

It’s especially helpful for stocking stuffers, since it’s easy to get carried away with small, inexpensive presents.

2. Go cash-only. Research shows that people spend a LOT more when using credit cards instead of cash. So if you want to keep your spending in check, try bringing only cash to the store.

3. Shop alone. The more people you bring along, the easier it becomes to impulse buy.

4. Take fewer shopping trips. The more time you spend shopping, the more money you’ll spend. So take fewer trips to the mall, and limit the number of stores you go into altogether.

A Woman Had Her Dad Drive Her to a Bank Robbery by Saying It Was a Job Interview

A Woman Had Her Dad Drive Her to a Bank Robbery by Saying It Was a Job Interview

bank-robbery-13

A 24-year-old named Chelsea Wilson from Hollywood, Florida asked her dad if he’d drive her to a job interview last Thursday. It was at a bank . . . and being a good dad, he took her.

He figured it went really well too, because she came outside with a bunch of CASH. She said it was an advance payment on her salary. Yeah . . .

Anyway, that’s what he allowed himself to BELIEVE happened . . . until the FBI showed up at his house the next morning.

It turns out Chelsea was lying to him, and he hadn’t taken her to a job interview . . . she’d tricked him into being her GETAWAY DRIVER when she robbed the bank.

She’d also robbed three other banks before, although she didn’t get her dad tangled up in those.

She was arrested for robbery, but since her dad really didn’t know what was going on, he won’t be facing any charges.

Four Reasons to Date a Guy Who Participates in Movember

It’s November . . . a.k.a. Movember . . . where guys grow mustaches for charity. So here are four great qualities of guys who participate in Movember.

  1.  He’s a philanthropist. It’s one thing to make a cash donation to charity, but it’s another level to grow your facial hair for a month, and ask your family and friends to sponsor you to do it.
  2.  He’s health conscious. Movember isn’t just about raising money for research into men’s health issues, it’s also about raising AWARENESS. And because of that, he’s more likely to take care of his OWN health.
  3.  He has a sense of humor. Growing a moustache for charity means he doesn’t take himself too seriously.
  4.  He can commit. Movember lasts a whole month, so if he can stay the course it shows has some serious staying power.

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

fwx-eat-a-30-pound-burrito-get-a-restaurant-2

There are hundreds of restaurants around the country with extreme eating challenges. Usually you have to finish, like, a five-pound hamburger to get a t-shirt or something. Forget about that. THIS is a real prize.

A Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, New York called Don Chingon has a new eating challenge that’s probably the hardest in the world . . . but it definitely has the most lucrative prize.

If you can finish a 30-POUND BURRITO in one hour, they’ll make you an OWNER.

The burrito uses a tortilla with a diameter of about three-and-a-half feet. It’s stuffed with chicken, steak, carnitas, chorizo, cheese, rice, beans, and salsa. Oh, and you also have to drink a margarita that’s made with a ghost pepper.

You can’t take a bathroom break or throw up, and it costs $150 just to try. But if you succeed, you become a 10% owner of the restaurant . . . which could be worth some serious cash over time.

The team at Don Chingon says they felt like ownership was the only fair prize. Quote, “If you’re going to gain 25 to 30 pounds in a single sitting, you deserve real compensation.

“Some restaurants put your name on the wall . . . we’ll GIVE you the wall.”
