Personal finance tips!

Think you can't afford a house? It may not seem like much month to month, but if you cancel your Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Spotify subscriptions for ten years and save the money instead, you can be really bored for a decade and still have nowhere near the money for a down payment.

@3psboyd I did the math and found out that if I skip my daily coffee I can save up my down payment in just 2-300 years!

@Lanceleoghauni @3psboyd Same. (~100k days, give or take)

For related Fun, note that current interest rates often have doubling times longer than current life expectancies.

@Newpa_Hasai I haven't bothered looking at the math for it, but I don't think there's even a possibility of me saving The Right Way ™ that will actually help me at all, ever.

Never mind that when 2008 The Second, Financial Apocalypse happens it'd all be wiped away anyways.

@3psboyd Especially if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

@3psboyd This reminds me of the articles I see about how to get rich, that basically endorse being a cheap asshole. Yeah... the Kock brothers got rich because they don't tip well!

Yes... Bill Gates ate Raman Noodles for 50 years!
