Saving Cash

Now What?: Write what comes next.
"I know we're trying to save money but that seems pretty extreme!"

What was the suggestion?

Yeah, I guess technically that would come BEFORE. Too bad!

Winner!!! (11/19/09)
Let's go to the bank, take out our savings, go to Las Vegas and put it all on the color Red on the Roulette wheel. What do you say? We've got a 50/50 chance of doubling our money. Do you feel lucky? I do.
Big Ups To: Mike Trippiedi
Method of Selection: Most of the other entries had some degree of "yeah, this could work, at least somewhat". A 50/50 gamble? That's kinda terrifying.

The economy's making you cross
Your 401(k) is a loss
Sorry to shout
But it grosses me out
When you choose to reuse dental floss

Saves money on paper products AND the environment.

“First my hours at work get cut and now our insurance company wants to charge us more money for overweight policyholders.” Mary locked eyes with her husband, Benny. “And I know you haven’t been sticking to your diet.”

“I’m sorry, Mary.” Chocolate cake crumbled free of his lips.

“There’s only one way around this.” Mary shook her head, determined.

“Switch healthcare providers?” Benny licked his fingers.

“Not exactly.” Mary examined the cake knife. It appeared sharp enough. “Now sit still, darling.” She moved in fast.

Benny screamed in terror.

“You’re gonna save us a bundle,” Mary said with a cutting smile.

Okay, we've rationed internet access (except where ABSOLUTELY necessary for business), shut off the central heating/air conditioning,replaced paper towels with roller towels (ugh!), removed toilet paper and advised people to bring in their own sponges (ugh! ugh!), suggested that unfiltered uncooled water is perfectly acceptable,required all personnel to make business calls on their mobile (cell) phones, declined all personal expense claims (you want to work? pay for the privilege!)but now, NOW? you expect me to work for nothing?? Well, okay then - it'll look good on my CV (resume)RIGHT??
