No excuse for being broke, especially if you are receiving benefits. Invest your money right, get a job, develop a skill and become self employed when you aren't working your real job, go to school, don't have any kids, sacrifice and you should be decent if you go hard.

DAMN 64%?!?!

I wont get into my finances but my pops told me its always a good look to have at least 10gs in the cut at ALL times. But with the debt people accumulate from late teens & into full on adulthood I can understand how hard it must be to save. smh
64% tho? Sh*t.

did you not see the chart i posted. Let me break it down for you.

If its

10 jobs out there
9 of the jobs are taken. (5 are close to retiring but due to higher cost they are forced to work longer and 4 are fresh new hires.)
They advertise for one spot but every quarter you have 40 people coming out of college looking for work to pay off debt.


What should the 40 people do if it's not any jobs? Go back to school and collect debt? Build a self business under a government that's built against it? Invest the money you dont have?


help me understand that please. I might be wrong.

Less than a thousand in my checking but I have over in my savings. I have money automatically transferred each month from my checking to savings. People need to be even smarter with their spending in todays economy if you want to get ahead.

Hate to burst your bubble man, but honestly if it came to that point, you're going to need something other than cash all together. Something that's actually worth something, like Gold, Diamonds, knowing a trade etc etc, and being able to barter those items for services.

The value of our dollar will continue to fall, and whether you physically have the money in your hand or in a bank will not matter.
you never know man, some dude might be selling a can of beans for like $50 when you trying to feed your family. Just saying

wow thats sad, i stays wit $10,000 on hand and i have no debt. just paid off my cc's. im straight.

$10,000 cash + $15,000 credit + excellent credit score = chilling. 1 thing i always made sure of was keep that credit good.

I've had a savings account since I was 18 and religiously put money into it twice a month. I've only pulled from it one time and that was when I bought a new car and needed a fat down payment. I've got plenty saved for emergencies.

My checking account on the other hand, I usually pay ALL my bills on the 1st. Mortgage, car payment, insurance, cell phone, etc etc. I just do it all on that day, so by the 2nd I may slip under then 1k mark but it's not really typical unless I bought some expensive sh*t a few days before.

I was raised to be smart and save money, if I keep this going I'll have enough in my savings to retire by around 40-45 years old (not that I will, I'd just probably have enough unless something fu*ked up happens like a lay off @ my office or something) , but most people don't know how to save money for sh*t, it's really sad. Not saying everyone with under a G in the bank doesn't know how to save, but most people don't know the first thing about balancing a check book every month or saving sh*t.. I had like 30k in student loans but I paid that sh*t off within a year of graduation, scholarships only cover so much.


Before I got my degree though, sh*t, I was living off of scholarship money, extra student loan money, and 150/week from my part time job while I was takin classes. I was broke as fu*k during college lol, legitimately poor.

PEOPLE WASTE THEIR MONEY ARE STUPID SH1T.


NEW CARS WHILE RENTING A HOME/APT
Well, to be fair there is a lot more to be cautious about when talking about owning a home vs owning a car. I own my home but I lease my personal vehicle, and have a company vehicle. I just prefer leasing vehicles because I know sh*t about fixing vehicles and repairs can get pricy. The same can kinda be said for owning a home, some home repairs can be fu*king ridiculously expensive. Home ownership isn't for everyone but I really just wanted something to call MY OWN ya know, plus renting in Dallas is a fu*king hassle and way overpriced. My co worker pays 1450 a month for a DUPLEX while my mortgage is about 600 a month for a nice a.ss house.

I see your point though, there will ALWAYS be people trying to live above their means. This is why places like rentacenter and rimtime will ALWAYS exist, and thrive... even in a down economy.
