Money – Everything In Moderation

Three Check Boxes with think plan act written next to themMoney is something that is a constant worry on the minds of most people. It is a grating long term stress that can lead some people to do pretty drastic things. The worst thing that money makes people do, is spend 40+ years at a job they hate, in rush hour traffic for two hours each way, only to have their bosses embarrass you with their sheer stupidity. I can not think of anything worse than that scenario. Unless you consider theft, murder and other crimes for money worse.

Everyone knows that the love of money is the root of all evil, but did you know that you can live on very little cash per day. When you think about spending $300 a month to finance a $15 000 car divided over 30 days, it only equals $10 per day. That is not all that much in the grand scheme of things. A mortgage however, is a whole different story. A mortgage might cost $1000 a month and divided over thirty days it would be $33 per day. Food, as long as you are not eating at restaurants very often could be another $300 a month, or $10 a day. Other expenses, like internet, cable television and hydro can be another $10 a day as well. All of this adds up to $63 dollars a day. It equals pretty much a full time employees earnings at minimum wage.

The point that I am trying to make here, is that you don’t need to stress yourself with a long commute and a decent job, when all of the basic essentials can be had with the simplest of laid back slacker jobs. It is time to start enjoying the easy life.
