    How about the flip side of this in that Americans buy more crap that they don't need, buy new cars every 5 years or so, live in bigger houses than they need, and so on and so on.

    Americans would not have to work those hours if they lived a more frugal lifestyle.

    If I didn't work at UPS, I'd have to work a lot more hours.

    We work the most, have the dumbest kids, aren't even top 5 in quality of life, etc etc.

    When I build my place, the floorplan I have picked has less than 1000 sq ft. I just need enough room for the grands to visit and a couple dogs. I don't need a 5000 sq ft house. I will not be trading my car, but I do need an old truck for the whatever. That's it. I have no one to impress. I just want to be debt-free and happy.

    I live within my means and am willing to give up 8 hrs a week. I could probably give up 10 a week and still get my 40 for the week.

    Dave Ramsay and Clark Howard are on my ipod's podcast list

    I listen to their shows while I do my residential deliveries

    Clark Howard is more informative but Dave's show basically hits on the same financial principles over and over

    Clark Howard is my personal pocket protector.

    Most Americans will work themselves to death and still be doing it into their late 60's. At least we can get out early.

    I get Motley Fool news just about daily on my computer. (don't even know why). I don't agree with a lot of it. They always seem to down UPS and like FDX better. I don't own FDX stock and probably won't.
