ya you can do it..i saved up 10 grand in about 6 months and it felt good

and once you have that 10k..it turns into a sport


i took a picture of my first 10k to save as a reminder i never wanna see less lol..

even tho i just had to take 6k out for a car but that was way after that first 10k so i barley could tell it was missing but still

it hurts..


even if i take out $50..im pissed...and find a way to get it right back..the more you got the more you want to save..people that CANT save dont understand that concept and always say..DUDE IF I HAD THAT I WOULD HAVE SOOOO MUCHH NICE sh*t!!

and i say..if it was you..you wouldnt have this..you woulda spent it already..and they cant seem to grasp that..


maybe this picture helps you motivate more?

this was the progression..i shoulda done it more ..


at this point i was like..imma save up 10 grand




around 5 grand


just about 10






and then at this point i bank it..and start all over again..it keeps me hungry

appreciate that, not sure what your expenses is like but im sure that feeling must be awesome to have a nice little cushion sitting in the bank collecting interest. Not saying 10k is a lot but for me it could hold me down for 8 months or maybe a little longer with normal spending if i were to lose my job. What were ya saving strategies?
I have a mortgage/utilities which comes to $1400/2 = $700 for my share. I also have my phone bill, and my car insurance which come to $200 and I have groceries and dog food lol.

Altogether about $1000 a month for all expenses, sometimes more sometimes less. I make $16/hour full time plus I have a side design business which can add anywhere between $5,000 + $15000 to my yearly income before taxes.

I was just very frugal, I knew how much money I had at all times so I could determine what I can afford to do. If you want to save you can't be impulsive, that is for sure.

If you had all that money right now, what would you do with it?

Your answer to this question will determine if you are capable of being a saver.

I'd bank it every 5,000. Deposits over 10k get noticed by the wrong people. Personally I try to stay as far from the radar as possible. Plus if they see deposits like that they are gonna want detailed invoices and proof I paid taxes on it. I like to keep a nice amount of cash and a nice amount of money in the bank to help offset atm fees and having a lot of cash is a great convenience when something comes up you didn't plan on.

9.19 x 21 = 220.56 per week

220.56 x 4 = 882.24 per month

882.24 x 5 = 4411.20 5 months





that's not taking into consideration of taxes and living either. that dude full of sh*t. if he did save it's not by that measley a*s money

I would throw it in my ING savings and keep adding on to it until the summer where I would splurge a little for my birthday. I'm actually good at saving money tho.

The point he's trying to make is that your part-time $9.19 an hour job isn't the main reason you were able to save $10,000.

I am around 20k will be closer to 25k saved for the year and only made 11k so far at work this year.

This money is actually what i have for life as this is my first year really saving after being homeless in 2010


Making this thread is already the start to you doing big things but 400 a month isnt alot but its a better start then most actually it is a great start.... years pass so fast when your lifes a routine so if you were to save 400 a month but you been at the same job and same house you will have 10 racks in no time but it can be blown fast
I have seen many spoiled friend get blessed with thousands cuz their parents were retired military and all they did was try to buy sh*t and show it off like they bosses cuz they got 22's and no gas money now


one secret i do is buy all my stuff in bulk that i can get....lighters 5.90 for 50...n*ggas come over wanna smoke n need a lighter...sale em for a dollar

spent 100 on cigarillors for around 1000...n*ggas want a swisher 1$ 2 for 3..

I save all my recyclables that are worth money

know someone with bottles on deck so i buy those in bulk also ...and resale

i resale anything at one point had a grand i was using posting adds on face book and craiglist buying androids just so i could resale them

my g its so obvious its fu*king stupid but idk why the hell i havent thought of that. thats fu*king genius... props have been given

I dont care if you have the money I'm just saying you didn't get it by making 9.19 per hour 24 hours a week in 5 months. the math don't add up
I have said how i got the money and posted the links....no need to say again...
the 9.19 is how i pay all my bills 25k is how much i made side hustling this year

Dont worry about me

theres people on boxden pulling in 5k+ a month side jobs do the math...thats 70k un taxed on top of there jobs

blew through a sh*t load of money within the past two months due to moving to a new place, buying furniture, increased expenses, reckless spending and Christmas shopping. This is how much I currently have in my savings account
u wanna save but u acknowledge that you have reckless spending habits?


its fascinating that people will go in to debt to provide gifts for "christmas" that they really cant afford.


How come the ppl who give gifts to everyone on Jesus birthday dont give everyone gifts on their own birthday?
