Common beginning or ending to a sentence. It can serve to:

1. provide an excuse for going on a spending splurge and buying things at their lowest prices ever.
2. suggest a sarcastic tone of frustration with work (cut in hours, cut in pay, cut in benefits, downsizing, laid off).
3. add to the delusional lie that the economy is getting better because of being fixated on greed and material possessions.
4. express serious concern for not having enough to live on.
