Everyone thinks that getting rich means making more money or winning the lottery.
It does not necessarily have to be the case.
Getting rich for me in the last few years is getting rid of recurring expenses. And the way I have done this is by getting rid of my cable bill.
That $90 dollar a month bill was really starting to aggravate me, since we only used to watch about 3 or 4 channels of the so called 650 we had to choose from.
The Cable company made it so that you had to pick the different packages at the time even if each package only had 1 real channel you wanted to watch. It became pretty pricey to watch TV. But everyone did it! Right?
I figured I would do this blog entry to let you know what I am currently making other than my regular salary.
And most would ask, why do you want to work more than your normal salaries if you have decent jobs etc…

It would most likely take a bit more than 10 years to do.
Here is why…. We started this much too late in life.
Now I know many of you will understand this.
Now I won’t say that we were all bad. Most decisions were made because we were living on one income for a family of four, however, there are some instances that we could maybe have done better with our cash if we had had better knowledge on the subject instead of doing like everyone else we knew and just hoping for the best. Or hoping to win the lottery.
At 365 posts I will have reached my personal goal, but I will speak on that the day I get there in about a month’s time! For some of you who read me daily, you‘ll already know what I am talking about. (more…)
