"If you switch from Uncle Ben's rice to the store brand, you can save $3 per month and put it into your savings nest egg!"

"Great. I only need to eat store brand rice for eleven years to afford this month's rent. I'm all set."

Since counting your pennies won't do jack if you get sick, I say go ahead and enjoy the little comforts you can, the little stuff that makes a difficult life easier to bear. Have that fancy latte, eat at McDonald's. Because again, you can't sack away enough nickels and dimes to pay for medical care, and it also doesn't do you much good when it comes to rent and auto repairs. Don't let some rich asshole shame you, because you want to eat something besides ramen noodles every now and then.
