Kirk Isernhagen, 28

Vehicular master of The Convenient Detailing Service and second in command at The Giant Flea consignment shop

SAVE:

"I ride my bike as much as possible. Mostly I ride it from my house in East Lawrence to work. We only have one car, and my wife takes it to work. She got hit by a car when she was riding her bike, so she kind of has a fear."

YIELD:

$30 per week in gasoline savings.

SPLURGE:

"Snack food. Like ice cream from Sheridan's. And movies. We rent a lot of movies over the weekend."

COST:

$28 (approximately $20 per week on yummies, and $8 per week on video rental).

WHY SO FRUGAL:

I'm starting my own auto-detailing business. Plus, we have a daughter.
