Even though it has been very hot and humid this past week I try my hardest to keep the AC off in my car. Windows down, roof open. Gas prices up, AC brings mileage down. Need a bigger sway bar. The RE92s are starting to show signs of wear on the outside after only 15,000 miles, especially on the drivers side of being pushed to hard on interstate entrance ramps. Need the back to follow along better through the curve instead of pushing straight. Of course the cheapest way I guess is slow down.

I am lucky here in WV. Out of the 3 other RSs that I have seen here in Charleston, mine is the most modified, which isn't saying much. But I am ahead around here. So I can hold my head up some.

ps--I am thinking about adopting the Ramen Noodle thing myself. I usually eat out Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner--Monday through Friday. Look at all of the money I could save.

Two weeks of Ramen noodles for lunch. The cost after ten workdays? $2. Damn. Can you beat $2 whole dollars for 10 days of lunch?

Shoppers Food Warehouse sells them for 6 Nissin Ramen Noodles for a dollar. Teriyaki Chicken is my favorite.

Fills me up so I can spend mo' money of my scooby.

Cool

8Complex has got the right idea. In fact that's the first step of our 12 step program.

Here's the secret to cheap eating:

Sleep in as late as possible. This will prevent you from eating breakfast.

Drink lots of water. Go for at least a gallon or two. You know you're on the right path if you have to make "pit stops" constantly.

Ramen noodles are great. Ditto for generic brand macaroni and cheese. If you're feeling rich, go for some cheap vegetables and eat them raw. Plus, it's healthy.

The biggest trick of all though is washing your car. See, if you keep your mind off food, it won't bother you. Best way to do that is to wash your car. Constantly. Just make sure not to inhale too much of the fumes from the cleaners or you'll throw up, especially if you haven't eaten for the day.

Doh! So where is the counciling center?! I've spent $1300 on my RS and I've only had it for 3 weeks! Not to mention over $100 worth of gas from just weekend driving! (i take shuttle to work and carpool home with mom so we don't get stuck in traffic)

8complex- i hear kidneys fetch a pretty good price, and you only *need* one to live, yet you have two...

well, everything in moderation. I've got problems just like the rest of you. But putting my sister through college brings me back to reality every time.

Oh man... there really does need to be an Subie club to help people like us... I've only spent a few hundred so far and I keep trying to put my dough to paying the scoobie off and getting the title. Problem is, everytime I take a ride somewhere I think 'what if I had...' I think you all know the RS-t.

Cool Owning an RS is just like alcoholism.........I can't stop!

I don't know about you other RS owners, but I am in full "mod mode" right now and I can't stop! I'm spending thousands of dollars in mods and I JUST CAN'T STOP.

Please, is there a "Subaholics Anonymous" that I can join? For Gods sake, I have a house payment. I need to buy food!

Help!

I am having that problem too... I just keep thinking of how I can cut corners in food spending, and try not to use the air conditioning a home to save a little money for my RS...
