If I tried to live on half my income my creditors would force me into bankruptsy
in 6 months to a year. I’ve never paid them late or not at all and I certainly
don’t plan on doing that now.
There comes a certain time when a person needs to make hard choices I realize.
But so long as I am able bodied I won’t live without my cell phones (4 for the
family), cable television and highspeed internet. If I got rid of all of that I
suppose I could have 300 bucks to put someplace else. But guess what? There is
NO WAY to put a price on the peace of mind I have that myself and my family have
these cell phones. And the television and cable is what makes working 7 days
per week, 24 hours per day possible.
I think too many of these ideas people throw around may work for younger people
that have not had time to make too many mistakes yet. I laugh out loud when I
hear someone complain of being 3000-5000 in debt LOL! I only wish!

I’m a newbie. Ownership is better than loanership. Never consider
renting even if it is temporary.
