    I understand what is means to live beneath one's means. It means sacrifice and only purchasing what you can afford to pay CASH. Also making paying off a mortgage a priority. That is why I am financially secure now and have NO debt.

    I am much better now than I was in my 20s. Growing up poor, I had some very bad money habits that took me a long time to break.

    i've always lived paycheck to paycheck and never had enough money to cover the bare minimum... it's not really that i can't manage my money it's more like i can't ever create enough income to pay the basic bills on time.
    thankfully i've never opened lines of credit and amassed a huge pile of debt. i pay for what i have and if i can't afford it i don't buy it.

    I have no debt, own my home, only one credit card (which is paid off every month, pay no interest), own my cars, money in the bank and savings. It has not always been that way. I have always lived within my means, Saved money even when it was hard. Work hard, got promotions, put that extra money up for the future.

    Realized at a very young age, (my dad died when I was 16) I was responsible for my self only. I never expected help from others and never got any either. This the way it should be, unless you are lucky enough to be born into a very rich family. Even if that is the case, you have to work hard to keep the wealth of what those before you worked hard to make.. Depending on the government is so wrong, in actuality you are depending on your neighbors, friends, family and strangers to take care of you, You are not any different than the next person, you were both born the same way, so don't blame them for your problems. You get our of life what you make of it.

    All if us mess up a little from time to time but if you spend less than you make you will be ok. But, always put away as much as you can because there is always something coming along to take it away. But better to be ready than have to borrow for an emergency. Always , always more revenue is the key. How can you increase you revenues. That is the real answer. Our Gov could increase rev by fertilizing the business environment and have enough money for every pet entitlement they love. But, alas they prefer the slow and hard way. Don't you love the liberal policy? There is a way to have your cake and eat it too, but they won't .
