Funny thing is, I still averaged approximately 60 hours a week for the 40 years in was in the workforce. Although I did not get paid by the hour. Was very fortunate that I was able to achieve a fair amount while starting out in the lower half of earners.
I got through four years of college with Ramen noodles from loose change in my couch cushions.
Maybe it was five years, but who's counting.
I do it every month! Our typical grocery bills for a family of 4 is right in line with that. We can afford to buy whatever we want, we just don't. They complained most about not being able to afford beer. There's a simple solution to that, don't drink it! I get sick of listening to these liberals whine about how hard things are. They're really not. Maybe they're just spoiled.
