We are not like Venezuela yet but could be headed that way. Have a plan and be ready to scrounge to live. We are talking garbage dumps and so on.

Something always told my boys, it is not always what you make but what you spend, ask yourself do I need it or want it? What do you spend on electronics a month cable, smart phone or phones, computer, internet? Options, antenna tv, flip phone or phones, computer with hot spot or basic internet. If you need or insist on having a truck is heating with wood an option, deer meat hunting, or sign up if possible for road kill deer. Their not all bad. Process them to burger, or take boned out meat somewhere and have it ground for you. grow a good basic garden if possible, put it in the freezer or jars. If you don't need that truck then get a high mileage most dependable car you can afford. Learn from listening and watching others, both successful and unsuccessful ones, good lessons from both and if you are doing all the talking either verbally or in type you ain't listening.

Guys, coonman220 doesnít want advice. Heís been posting complaints like this forever, yet refuses to do anything about his situation. I donít feel sorry for him because he hasnít done anything to solve any of his problems. He just gets on here and whines about it.

Why on earth would you double down on trapping spring beaver, pouring more expensive gas thru a beat up truck to run 35 miles for a few traps? Digging out of a hole is about making good decisions more than anything else. I missed the entire season in 2019. Did it suck? Yea but I survived. Today I look at missing a season as the reason I had money in my pocket later on to pay for something that we had to have.

Best wishes

Dave I would almost guarantee there is a machine shop near you looking for help. There are some machinist jobs where a lot of experience is not required. Such as a cnc operator. Machinist jobs pay pretty good and I bet it would be a lot easier than your factory job.

I donít know him at all. I hate to make generalizations about people because you never really know a personís situation.

Hopefully heíll figure it out.

I truly hope he talks better than he writes though.

Coonman, you could work at Wal Mart 10p -7a and make $15.50 an hour stocking shelves. 4a-1p and 1p-10p pay is $14. You'd get an employee discount too. It'd be more profitable than trapping beaver this spring.

yep she has a degree though not in any medical profession but the very much training for EMT and it is updating constantly lots of liability also she works three jobs to make a decent mid income wage. State minimum wage is $5.50 and hour federal is I think $8.00 but not sure something need to change. The only high paying jobs are in the oil fields and those are gone now because of cheap oil. Dont come to Wyoming to make money thats for sure.

Ever think of moving to a place with better paying jobs? Working 3 jobs has to be tough and exhausting.

Sprung Iím not tryin to be a knocker here...but doesnít Dave Ramsey teach what we all should know already? Heck all I had to do was listen to my elders. Wife bought her first house at 19 and we bought her second here in Alaska, both paid off. No car loans or anything else. We both work and live like hillbilly royalty. Lol

Dave-As far as food shopping goes, do you have an Aldi's near you? My wife and I do most of our food shipping there and it is unbelievable how much we save in comparison to WalMart of any of the other stores. For a long time we did not buy pork there but have found their pork and chicken prices very low with excellent quality.
Some other groceries are 1/2 or less than what we'd be paying in some of the grocery stores.

2160 Holiday Dr. in Dubuque IA. Moosetrot is right. Example: catsup Aldis $1.15 Heinz $3.50 and I'm picky about catsup, you can't taste the difference. Mayo Aldis $1.89 Hellmans $3.89 no difference other than price. Last week I bought a whole beef tenderloin for 7.99 a pound. The store a half a mile away was asking $12.00 for a 5oz piece. You have to bag your own groceries, big deal.
