I’m learning all about money, saving, and investing. I love the words compound interest. If I save just $2,000 each year from now until retirement I will retire a millionaire. It sounds so difficult, but it’s not. The simplest things can add up to that number. Don’t drink that high priced coffee, stop buying cds, go to thrift stores and consignment shops. The more you save, the more you’ll find ways to save. I’m addicted to the phrase I’d rather be rich. If someone asks me if I want to buy and overpriced shirt or spend my paycheck on high priced low quality drinks at the club all I can think is I’d rather be rich!
