Hi everyone, my name is Sam (name changed to protect the poor) and I am broke.
I am so broke that if the world was selling for a penny I would have to charge it. I have been living pay check to pay check for the past 7 years (since graduating college) and I am tired of it. I hate not having money to go on trips (like my sister), get my car repaired (it's 9 years old, but it's paid off), or live on my own (I live with my mother. I am not a looser, this is due to student loan debt). So I have decided to save myself before it is to late.
I was planning to start on this new path on January 1st as a New Years Resolution, but then I decided that there is no time like the present. Also, I figured that there would be a lot of new blogs out about the same thing and if I wanted some readers I better start early.
So, this year I have two New Years Resolutions.........
1. To pay down my debt ( I have 4 credit cards and 2 student loans)
2. To save money (I don't have a savings account, a 401k, or an IRA)
Let the games begin
