    I Will Be Retired Before I Reach Age 30

    I just want to share my story of how I have set myself up on the path to never having to work a job again and be financially independent and most importantly free. :) I hate having a job, but not because I am lazy. I am a hard worker. What I hate is the idea of having to go to...

    Nope

    No I don't have enough cash - I have enough to survive I guess but I could always use a little more! The price of EVERYTHING has gone up and wages haven't - my food bills have gone through the roof - as have the gas and electric! My cats are now costing me a small fortune and my...

    Okay , Alright , I'm Poor !

    I've always been poor for one reason or another , sometimes by accident , sometimes by choice , even spite . I figure though , that even if I did have more cash , It'd just get spent as fast as it does now ( that's fast !) so it's more a matter of living within my very limited...

    Can't Catch Up!!!

    You know we fell behind on bills and have never been able to catch back up.  We are down to the basic necessities of life.  Bill collector's constantly calling. i don't answer anymore--i don't know what to say--i don't want to lie or make up stories.
