There's still nasty spills in it, regardless of if it's sterile or not. I will do that water/lemon trick today...

 

surprisingly enough it actually does work. and speaking of microwaves....

not sure if its been posted in here but. if ever you come across a pair of kicks

that are just too fucking small but not pass-able....stick them shits in the microwaves

for like 45 seconds....a minute + depending on heat tolerance and needed shoe reform.

take em out and stick yer feet in. walk around and take em off and bend them shits.

works every time.

 

 

hell. for all i know. i might have been the one to post about this in the past.

"It's not how much you make but how much you spend"

 

something an older gentlemen told me today.. we were talking about saving money and stuff like that.. he said his father told that to him a lot when he was growing up. It's good to keep things simple and not have to many things. Keep life simple and don't over complicate everything

 

horse shit

 

i was actually just thinking about how UNTRUE this is,

like literally the other day. it doesnt matter where the

money's going, its completely matters where/how its coming in.

 

in this economy, and in this LIFE, a dollar is getting harder

and harder to come by, no ones spending, no ones offering

any help, the gap between rich and poor has widened into

a hopeless chasm thats only getting wider and were left over

here scrambling for whatevers left. its like a poker game where

one asshole took most of the money and cashed out, leaving

the rest of the table just trying to get at whatever small stacks

are left on the table.

 

that being said, yeah, saving your money and making sensible

purchases, both in terms of how they benefit you and how they

benefit the rest of the community, wont hurt.. but it wont save you either.

I believe Mclovin is just fucking up the quote,

 

"Its not how much you make but how little you spend or how much you save"

If you haven't read Bastiat's "tale of the 2 brothers" you should.

Insightful!

 

It definitely is how much you make. I need to make rent, utilities, buy groceries, school shit, a monthly Metrocard, and still have something to do cool things with my social network now and then.

 

Aside from that last part, it's all very essential, and I barely make ends meet. So...nope.

we gave up heating the house for the past 3 years and i've never had AC or cable

and i've found some creative ways around doing lots of laundry or going out.

in 2010 i made a resolution to stop shopping and i haven't bought any clothes or 'stuff' since.

i'm down to a grocery budget of about $35/week

one nice thing about owning your own home and being an anti-social who hates drinking and loves cooking, life is cheaper.

 

my retirement fund is looking ok, hopefully it weathers the numerous crashes it'll likely see before i actually retire.

I do not doubt that you are being truthful Symbols but at that food budget I have a hard time seeing how you arrive at a balanced, nutritional and varied diet.

 

That comes out to $1.67 per meal, perhaps there are some regional price differences at play here but such a budget in my neck of the woods would not cut it.

 

On the subject of saving while working with limited resources, the simple fact of the matter is that when you are poor everything costs more money, not less making savings difficult.

 

I strive to operate in a defined budget and save aggressively when I can, but there is only so far a person can cut. The big cuts require lifestyle changes but pay off big over time, not owning a car is a good example of such a cut, it can really pay off but is not feasible for everyone.

Not to derail this thread more than it already is, but..

 

It's about both income and savings which both correlate to your desired quality of life..

 

Bottom line, you're not going to get "rich" working the counter in a gas station, no matter how much you save.

 

Trying to make something like that happen is HUSTLING BACKWARDS. It's also a quick way to become completely miserable in life.

 

The wise man looks at work like stepping stones and acts accordingly..

 

Like morton sez.. You need to DEFINE your budget and work that plan.

 

That being said, my tip of the day is:

 

You gotta eat your food.

 

You'll never feel rich eating shit

 

And it's often more important to FEEL rich, than to BE rich by the standard of another

this kind of fatalistic thinking pisses me off. do you think people in the depression were whining about conditions or were they on their fucking hustle 24/7 doing what it takes?

 

The economy is not good now, but the class divide will always exist in this country.

 

Always has, always will. That is capitalism. The rich capitalizing on the poor.

 

You can get depressed or you can get some for yourself. You can be optimistic or pessimistic.

 

There is still much more class mobility in this country than most of the world.

 

Shit fluctuates, the first shall be last and the last shall be first and shit

man, i dont mean to complain, i guess i am just getting frustrated

with the way things are and if this thread is meant to give a heads

up from the older cats to the younger ones (i consider myself right

in the middle), then what this generation needs to do is wake the

fuck up and start making the right choices, otherwise i feel like

that class divide could become permanent, or something like it.

 

you said it tho, get up and make it happen, crying about it wont solve a thing.
