My wife and I both work two jobs and we are still broke. We don't socialize, well I have to because of my second job with dj'ing (more like networking, whatever), we keep to ourselves, don't eat out or by junk food. We try to stay on top of our sh*t as best as we can and its still a struggle. Its not really how much you make but how wisely you invest, or how well you can save. You can still have fun and make it, just make sure you take care of what is important first before you start kicking it
If you're "broke" (whatever that means to you) and you have 4 sources of income in one household, then the problem is what's going out is more than what's coming in, which is a budgeting issue.
In short, you're "broke" because of your own money management skills.
"If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain," she said in a magazine piece. "Do something to make more money yourself -- spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working."
I don't think anything is wrong with that. She started with, "if you're jealous." I'm not going to say everyone can be rich, but most people, if they chose to, can make enough money to satisfy their basic standard of living, with money left over. By all means, I'm poor, but my lack of ambition and work ethic are pretty much to blame. I live alone, have cars, and all that crap, but its not like I can wake up and buy a brand new zz383 engine if I want (aka spend 5 racks). I could only imagine having a wife to go half on these bills with....oooo weee....LS motors here I come.
