Your Money Or Your Life by Joe Dominguez
My Crock Pot is pretty big. I know it takes a LOT of water to wash it, at least when I cook something that really gets baked on their good. not to mention the soap costs (which really isn't a lot, but still). Do I use more and $1 in water and soap cleaning it? If I do then the liners are actually a less expensive way to go]
I love this kind of thinking, I do it all the time. At my house, the cost would be under one penny ($.01) to wash the crock pot.
I have spent decades thinking like this. In regards to an earlier post, when determing your true wages, it involves much more than dividing your net pay by the hours you worked. You must subtract from your net pay all of your job related expenses....clothes purchased for the job, dry cleaning bills, time you spend getting ready for work, transportation time, etc. Let me recommend a book that was on the best seller list for many months, years?, in the early 1990's. I am sure a lot of you are familiar with this book, but in case some younger people are not, the title is, Your Money Or Your Life, by by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. For me, it was a life changing book. One of the many things this book does is it explain how to figure your true wages. You may think you are making $20./hr but it may come as a shock you are making much less than that. Amazon.com has about 100 copies right now and even my tiny library has it. It is considered the number one book ever written for financial awareness.
