If It Don't Make Dollars, Then It Don't Make Cents

Pastor shared this thought the other day.
That the things we buy, cost money, and we get money by working, which involves our time.
So before you buy something, think about how much time you had to work to pay for that item.

I thought i would figure up how much stuff i normally buy would cost, in time.
I will use the federal minumum wage is ($5.85), instead of my hourly rate.
I'm on salary, and I learned long ago as a pastor to never figure up what you make an hour.

Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock - $50 or 8hrs 32mins
Starbucks Carmel Apple Cider - $4 or 40 mins
iTunes Music Album - $10 or 1hr 42mins
Monthly Verizon Cell Service - $100 or 17hrs 5mins
Ford Escort Tank of Gas - $36 or 6hrs 9mins
Yahama Scooter Tank of Gas - $2.50 or 25mins
House - $70,000 or 11,965hrs 48mins
