Money saving advice
« on: August 22, 2015, 11:28:05 PM »
I bought a phone for $1385 before even getting my first salary, I'm a teen as you all can probably tell, how do I get myself to save money instead of spend it?

I didn't think they made phones that expensive.. I heard some $500 something for iphones but wtf lol.

Get vanguard investment account opened. Retirement accounts if you can or just regular.
Use vanguard's automatic savings feature.
Calculate half of your take-home pay.
Set vanguard to invest that amount on each paycheck.
Never withdraw the investments until you're FIRE.
Profit.

Don't do that again.

One of my favorite Kriegsspiel posts, and that's saying a lot.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.

Does it have diamonds in it and 3D print things you take pictures of?
