How not to be poor.

How not to be poor.


(Or, how to be poor.)


The lifetime cost of three bad appetites.

APPETITE PER DAY OR WEEK OVER THIS MANY YEARS MONEY LOST
Smokes $5.00 per day 56 $10,000,000
Lattes $3.00 per day 61 $10,000,000
Brewskis $11.00 per week: 2 six-packs 64 $7,000,000

There are other wastes. Expensive cable or satellite TV subscription packages. Pizza. Other fast food. These would increase the foregone $27 million.

Avoid expensive, wasteful habits.

Because some people partake of these things regularly, they hit their 70’s nearly destitute and have to rely on government programs paid for by taxpayers. Don’t let this be you.

Assumptions: 12% growth, 2% inflation. A net growth rate of 10%.
