Just Pennies A Day!

Don't you find that phrase just stupid?

Unless you are only spending 1 cent on something, you are spending pennies a day.

Everything can be converted into pennies a day.

I spend about $25 per week on gas or $100 a month.
That comes out to 10,000 pennies a month.
There are an average of 30 days in a month.

So, basically, you are spending about 333 pennies per day on gas.
More in February.

You can do that with everything.
Break it down and it's all just pennies a day.

Car payments, food, electricity.
You name it.

It's all just pennies a day.

The only way besides buying something for 1 penny is if it were a one time purchase and it lasted so long that the cost would break down to less than a penny per day.

Like, an iron.
You spend $20 and it'll last a good 20 years.
Or it should- if you iron as often as I do.
Which is once every few months.

So, you bought the iron.
You have it 20 years so that is like a dollar a year-100 pennies.
There are 365 days in a year.
So, that way it's less than a penny per day.

No counting pennies a day on that one, my friend.

So, why do the commercials try and act like "just pennies a day" is such a bargain?

Yeah, whatever!
