    At the Pearly Gates

    A guy is at the Pearly Gates, hoping to be admitted. St. Peter says to the guy, "I can't see that you did anything really good in your life, but you never did anything bad either. If you can tell me one really good deed that you did, you're in." So the guy says, "Once I was driving down the...

    Why do some people find it so difficult to "thrift" fabulous deals?

    I've seen some opportunities to thrift an alleged great deal on something I don't actually need, and don't particularly like. However, I've seen very few opportunities to thrift an alleged great deal on something I really like, and actually need. What am I missing?
