I have been reading a lot and it's nice to see people doing the things they find enjoyable after a long time of saving. It's also true that no matter what your plans are. It takes one health scare to set that off track. It was nice to see a good story today. Reading that was worth two cups of coffee for me. I am sure happy about that.

nowadays it's a must to save cause you never know what can or will happen in the future but for some reason some or most people either can't or thinks debt is the thing to do. so sad.

It's what they need in the future that only them know for sure. I feel bad if that credit score is needed. Many can't get approved for basic stuff without it.

I'm never to save. I mean not really. Eventime I save a lil bit of money then hard time hits us and I give all the money to my hubby. You know to buy food and paying bills.

Then you really have nothing to save. I am not like most people so forgive me. I do know that if you or your hubby has bad habits and you can support them. Then you have money to save. You just don't choose too. So it is you who knows what you have.

@sharon6345 Perhaps you right dear. But whenever we have money we prefer to pay off the depts. He just joined maybe next month I could save some money.

@BabeSays Then over time you will see we have the same thing in common. I pay extra on everything. I have a bill due next month it was $43 I now owe $3 another bill was $124 now it's less than 60$. I am doing that as long as I have air in my lungs. I paid $5 more on the rent. It's no way going to hurt me. Unless I pass away and the owner keeps it in that case. Bless them for the roof I have is well worth it.

Because of a stressful job, I end up spending to entertain myself. I'm glad you're inspired by a good read. Ah the many benefits of the internet.

There are times you have to do that as well. I do understand. It happens to me too. I am redoing my unit so I am working on each item.

This is a comment after I read the blog. It was inspiring. I wish I can follow his footsteps. The cancer diagnosis didn't stop him from following his dream.

It can take a huge event to wipe out the savings. It's happened to me. I still start over. I have goals and it's nice to reach them.
