Your choice? More money or more sex
Or would you prefer to have an extra hour each day?
If you had to pick among the following, what would you prefer -- more money, more time, less weight or more sex?
Our friend Sharon Harvey Rosenberg, also known as The Frugal Duchess, shared these results from the poll with her readers.
- 57% would rather save an extra $50 a week.
- 31% would rather lose one clothing size.
- 6% would choose for more sex.
- 6% would rather have an extra hour every day. (Sharon would vote with this group, but she’d use a third of that time to make more money.)
It should be noted that the survey was dominated by women -- 5,250 females responded, compared with 627 men.
The survey also indicated that people are making small adjustments -- rather than major changes -- because of the economy. For instance:
“When they see results, however, it’s empowering: The survey showed that more women (45%) feel better when they slash grocery costs, versus sticking to an exercise regimen (24%), for example,” said a post about the survey at AllYou.com.
