What frustrates me most about many of the people I work with who make significantly more than our family is listening to them brag about all their possesions one day and then listening to them complain about how tough it is to make ends meet the next day.

Buy a good set of earplugs.

So for those of you that fall into the previous category start big by moving to a less expensive house and buy less expensive cars and you will see how easy it will be for you to LBYM. I don't harbor any ill will against you, just don't complain to me about how tough you have it.

Its apparent from the posts that your $67,000 house may be a $200,000 house if located somewhere else. Just like you can't find $50,000 homes, they can't find $150,000 homes. I suggest you travel to other places before you judge others.

For those of you in similar circumstances to our family keep posting the great money savings ideas that can really help us.

Does this mean people with 6 figure incomes can't post? It doesn't sound like you need any help with money saving ideas. But maybe others on this board do.

I suggest you read the credit card board where the idea for this board came. You will find people that are struggling to get out of debt or celebrating the freedom of being debt free. Some have 6 figure incomes. Many got in debt due to medical expenses, car accidents, divorces, or less responsible spouses. We offer a big WOO HOO for each success they have and encouragement when unexpected downturns happen.

So here is a WOO HOO for you for living below your means. So please offer help and support to others on these boards.
