Watch the Black Out Bucs Game on Your Computer #Free

Well, its the beginning of another Buccaneer Football season, and along with that comes the blacked out local games in Tampa area. Even though the NFL loosened the restrictions to only 85% stadium sellout, I don't see the #Bucs doing that except for a couple night games this year. But, don't despair - you can watch it for free on your computer (at 19:30 pm).
Just go to and click on AM FOOTBALL to see the listing of games you can see. This is also handy if you're from Pittsburgh and you want to watch the Steelers who are not broadcast locally on Tampa channels. Click on the game you want, but be careful not to click open any popups, as there are a few. You will also be prompted to download the newest version of Adobe flash player which you should do if you want to watch the game. Sometimes there are a couple choices of links to view the game, so if one link is loading slow or something, just try the other link. If you click the popups and your computer starts going crazy, close them and do a virus check with Ad-aware or whatever software you use to be sure you didn't get a virus. I have never gotten a virus from this site, but all those popups make me nervous.
We usually watch it on a laptop and using the HDMI cable connect the computer to the HDTV to view it on the large screen. So, tonight we'll be watching the Bucs - I hope they win!

Are Motorcycles More Frugal Than Cars?

Since the price of gasoline has been creeping up all summer, I thought I'd evaluate the costs of our motorcycles vs car/truck. Assume all vehicles are paid for and comprehensive insurance coverage is equal for all vehichles. The only variable is gasoline, collision insurance coverage and maintenance which will increase the cost per mile driven, but then again the more miles each vehicle is driven will help decrease the cost per mile.
We have four vehicles and they all have different functions. The fourteen year old truck is used for towing and hauling and toting the dog around. The eight year old car is for commuting and travel. The big motorcycle is for the guy and the little motorcycle for the girl. Mostly the motorcycles are used for shopping, and riding around on weekends, but occasionally for commuting based on the weather. All vehicles are paid for and all four vehicles have full insurance including a high level of uninsured motorist coverage.  Our total cost to own and operate these four vehicles each year is about $4500. But in actuality the $1000 gas costs are paid with coupons and gas cards at Publix, so that doesn't come out of our household budget. The remainder of the cost is mostly insurance. You may wonder why we pay so much for insurance, and I can assure you its not because we are risky drivers. Neither myself or DH has ever been the cause of an accident or collision. It is because we have 100/300 uninsured motorist coverage on all our vehicles. Since over 40% of people in Tampa do not have insurance, we need to buy insurance to protect ourselves from them. Another large percentage also drive without a valid license, so it is risky just to be on the road with all these people. Especially on a motorcycle. Especially when everyone seems to have a cell phone in at least one hand.
Anyway, here is the average cost breakdown calculated from our actual expenses over the last three years. As you can see the big motorcycle costs ($1311) almost as much to operate as the car ($1756). But the car was driven a lot more miles, so the cost per mile is the lowest for the car ($0.21/mile). And if we drove it exclusively and got rid of the motorcycle and its costs, the car would be even a better deal for the household. But, if the little motorcycle was the only vehicle needed, it actually costs very little to have around and use as desired for riding or commuting. The surprising finding here is that the truck is the most expensive vehicle to operate since it is used so little, just a few hundred more miles each year than my bicycle.

So, what is more frugal? The motorcycle or the car? The answer will vary for each of you, but if you keep the motorcycle insurance costs down by getting a smaller less risky model it will be more frugal. Your safety is worth something too, and small motorcycles are not as safe or easy to see in traffic. It depends on your route and if you stick to day time riding. But the cost difference is not very much. Personally, I think the risk of riding is too great to justify it with being more frugal. Don't get me wrong, riding a motorcycle is adventurous and fun and satisfies that "defying danger" excitement we all need. But unless you stick with a small motorcycle, it's generally not more frugal than a car, but would be more frugal than a gas guzzling truck.
But the best choice which has more benefits than all the above, is to just ride your bicycle.

My Shopping Trip - Saved over 100%

This week shopping has been ups and downs. Earlier this week, I had one of the worst shops of my life at Publix, and yesterday it was fairly pleasant. There were a few vitamins left for overage and I managed to find one lone CG nail file, plus the Pure Protein Bars and pens. I got some good feedback about my frustrating shop post the other day, one reader suggested just grabbing a magazine and browsing patiently while the cashier did her thing, or pull out an emery board and start filing my nails while I wait. I always know what my total should be so unless its different, I'll let the overzealous cashier have at it.
This Publix shop was pretty good, but due to the inconsistency of the enforcement of Target coupons (1 per guest, no overage) my total went negative. I always shop with my DH so the manager at this store says we can use 2 Target coupons per shop since we are 2 guests. I was not planning on getting the overage on the Pure Protein bar or the Papermate pens but continue to purchase since they will at least be free. Well, the guy cashier didn't mark down my TQ's so I had a little extra overage. This was making the supervisor nervous having to enter his numbers after every single coupon as it went negative. I forgot the water in the car so its not in the picture. They ended up paying me $1.53 so I saved over 100%.
Since the interpretation of TQs has become pretty random, I've changed the order in which I hand over coupons. I always give over the $/$$ Save A lot or Winn Dixie coupon first so they can verify the total on the order meets threshold. But now the next coupons are going to be Target coupons. This way I'll know if there will be additional overage, and if there is I can have DH run get an item to take up the overage, yesterday it was the Publix Drinking water which is kind of near the registers. Then since the cashier is manually entering competitor coupons, the Publix coupons are next which require more manual entry of LU#'s. Finally, the end of the order should go quick with manufacturer coupons that scan quickly. Plus, if numbers are required due to excess number of coupons the supervisor with numbers, sees all the manufacturer coupons left to scan and doesn't panic seeing the Target coupons.
