I keep telling you how you should invest, stop spending, and do more for yourself financially. I can not justify doing so without doing so myself. I want you all to see how I am doing it today.
That is my breakdown. You might note that I did not include a budget for my living, fun, and other savings. That is for next time. I did want you to see, however, that I do put 10% into investments first. The trick to automating your investing is that you can live on what is left. If you are feeling a crunch, make a lifestyle adjustment.
A very rich man once told me that the trick to being happy is living below your means. This multi-multi-multi millionaire drove the same Toyota Corolla he bought in the 1980s over twenty years later.
Now that you have seen how I do it, it is time to do it yourself.
