Who wants to live large?  Not me I just want to be able to pay my mortgage, utilities and go out once in awhile.  Even my kids have the same wants....but unfortunately it is getting harder to reach in America.

I thought to myself, "I feel dumber for having read this idiotic article." And, now looking at the comment section, I am relieved to see that I am not alone. What a dumb collection of ideas. The only two I may try, and that's a big may, is the clothing rental for say, a wedding and the hotel discount. The rest are just a waste of pixels.

I could sell everything I own and do two of those things and then I would be broke.  Then I would be 'Living Large' because I would be camping in a forest.

Put that kind of money to better use, update your home or use the money for a little nicer car, buy nicer attire, instead and have it instead of wasting your money, on these article items.

Hello there, somebody isn't checking their decimals.  Either you rent the castle for 1200 Euros (about 1600 dollars) or you rent it for 16000 dollars.  Which one is it?

Or you can just lease the most expensive car,  dine in the best restaurants, buy the most expensive gold jewelry that your credit card can absorb.  Sell the jewelry, pocket the cash and then don't pay the bills and declare bankruptcy.  Oh I'm sorry, people are already doing that!
