How to Afford Anything - Well except respect

Sometimes a blogger will attempt to mix information with humor and end up pissing off a bunch of visitors. Take "How to Afford Anything" by Ken Rockwell.

Quote from his section on Marriage: "A woman's job is to spend your money. If she hasn't shown that she can spend her own money well, she certainly won't spend yours any better."

Still, he has some good ideas tucked in amidst the misogyny and finger pointing. He advocates the usual shopping for a deal, bargaining, couponing, renting a room versus an apartment, watching the register, etc. There's nothing groundbreaking but I tend to read these articles anyway - and if they've managed to piss off a bunch of feminists? I'm speed reading that sucker!
