Guess the same question could be asked of why is a person living day to day? If a person is living that way, why havenít they done something before now to change that way of living? Iím not rich, but the CEO of the company I work for is and I get enough crumbs to not have to live day to day. I need rich people to pay me, lol. Generally the ďwoe is me crowdĒ has done nothing to improve their life or life for their family. This is America. Anyone can go from nothing to something. Anyone can go from day to day to month to month or even year to year. We all have ďvicesĒ that we could do without and save money. We all have ďwantsĒ we could do without to save money. If your job doesnít pay enough, find another. Prove your worth. Canít afford store bought food, eat wild game. Plant a garden. I grew up poor, Iím making sure I donít die poor and my family wonít bear any of my burdens when I die. I donít care if gas goes to $10 a gallon, Iíll keep living my life just like I did when it was $1 a gallon. Plan for hard times and when they come they wonít be hard times. I preach that to my kids daily. One job doesnít work, get another. Heck, Iíve told mine to get another just to put that check in the bank or investments. Live like a pauper when youíre young so you can live like a King when your old.

And before anyone gets their feelings hurt, Iíve lived the poor life. One meal a day for me so my family could eat. We would buy a tiny square of hamburger meat and a box of hamburger helper every night for dinner. There are 20+ different varieties of Hamburger Helper just in case anyone was wondering, and Iíve tried them all. I wouldnít eat it now if it meant I had to go hungry, lol. If we can come from poverty level to middle class then anyone can.

They can afford to fill it up or they wouldn't have.

Im.living with the reality of trying to make enough money to keep my gas tank off empty and toilet paper in the house at the aame.time.



Wow, someone is a bit jealous/envious. Maybe you should try living within your means. Living paycheck to paycheck is no way to live. Quit buying all the luxury items.
