My wife watches the show for the entertainment value of the "can I afford it". She only watches it when I'm not at home as I can't stand Suzy because of her high almighty attitude. Like you said, don't buy anything and save money until you die perspective.

Bingo. She doesn't practice what she preaches. Then again, how many people in the public really do when it comes to self promotion. She's in it to make money. If she did her show on PBS and operated as a non-profit, it might give her some credibility.
