I knew it. I read page two and by the numbers she has 2,700 a month to spend AFTER she pays all her fixed monthly bills.
That's over $32K a year to play with. More than many people make a year GROSS.
And these people can't make ends meet?
Please go on oh financially savvy one. Tell me how this 1%er was able to scrimp and save 10 grand.
What a joke. I'm offended this was even published.
Dear readers, the best advice I can offer is this: Barring your fixed expenses, look for leakages (such as late fees, overdraft fees, high-interest credit) and make every possible effort to avoid these. With the money you save, or avoid spending, throw a little at your debts and save a little.
The thing with getting your finances together is that we fear that we will be uncomfortable, as we fear that we will have to do without. If you're buried financially, you're already doing without. It's not rocket science, really. It's making minor adjustments over time. Start very small and reap the rewards. Build from there, and good luck!
