This is baloney. It's going to be a whole lot easier to save if you make 100k and up than if you make 30k. Heck I used to save every penny when I was making 30k right out of college and managed to save the same amount now without even trying in 1/6 the time.

This is a reasonably valid point......if you're willing to gift money to unknown entities with no feedback from them by way of a thank you etc.

I've made far more than *100k and up* for a few decades (and not even counting my husband's contribution) It still sticks in my craw to gift away even as much as $10/month to an unknown entity who's done nothing to earn it.

Even my library fines of 75c or so I consider a tax on my STOOPID

You're good value for teaching material, Slick
