Hourly Rate

Today, I stumbled across an interesting blog "One Caveman's Financial Journey". I love the balance between finance and personal touches. So, as I was reading the back posts I found this post. It really got me thinking. If after taxes, insurance, union dues and the .50 union donation, I only make $8.20 per hour I should really start being more careful with those dollars. My trips to Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks this past week cost me two and a half hours of work. Yikes! Those coffees and what not were not worth two hours. If I only remember to keep this in mind before I buy things I may think more carefully about buying them. This would be a win-win situation. More money in my wallet and less clutter in the house.
