    I would love to adhere to that philosophy! However, I live in Los Angeles where the cost of living is outrageous. A modest 3 bedroom home in the San Fernando Valley costs 375-400k. 2 cars are a must unless you want to spend 4 hours of your day commuting on the bus. Gasoline costs $4-5 a gallon. I wish I could move but I my mother in law watches my 2 children to help us save on childcare costs. What to do? We are filing bk ch 7 this week...hope it goes smoothly.

    we have ONE place that's not too bad, but nothing that compares with up north, even tho, it's JUST ok.

    i also know when we go visit Miami we get great food all the way around...but not here.
    Yea, you're in culinary no-man's land up there. If you are close to one of their locations, Anthony's Coal Fired is not too bad. A little different, but light years better than that stuff Domino's tries to pass off as pizza.

    I'm in Broward, so there are some okay places around. Not NY good, but at least edible.

    Trying to get decent bagels is another mission...

    tobee: LOL i wish i had 200k saved up. But i do understand the theory of owning a home without credit. But where i live 200k is nothing for a home. NY is super expensive. But having 100k or more saved is great. I guess ima have to roll with that trend so i dont get left behind hehehe...Me for instance i sold my old car prior to bk to pay my bills and got left with nada. I saved up till now and have 7k ready for a downpayment. I had another 10k saved and ended up spending it on what? idk lol...It is feasable to save and get what u want. Its just patients that can kill it

    mikemike...i had to somewhat chuckle when i was watching cnn this weekend and they were doing a short on home buying today...the new thing...BUY IN CASH....

    it presented a couple just racing out there to buy that house with a hand full of cash!! oh! and let me not forget, it sounded like everyone and their mom have 200k in their bank accounts and this is going to be the "new" buying trend......a.nd it's going to really help our ecomony...right??? certainly for NO ONE i know...

    all that aside, i do believe hhm's point, is, live within your means...don't go out and buy what you can't afford. i know we are ATTEMPTING to save for our new car to be able to pay cash for it...it the old days we could afford a nice payment...now, we can't and even if we could i don't want it.

    I doubt that. The economy is getting harder and more expensive. Who can save say 30k for a car minus all other expenses or at that buy a home like u said that starts at 350k for a studio condo. Unless u make six figures and not everyone makes that much

    best idea yet.

    we have began a "car" fund. we are hoping our 11 year old car will hold out for another 5 years, wishful thinking on our part.

    when and if it goes, the money that's in the fund will purchase the next car, whether it be 1k or 20k. i have allocated $500 monthly in our budget for a car in the future. i don't want us to be caught off guard when the inevitable happens.
