The job is a dishwasher. Not the greatest job in the world, yet it's fine for me. I make minimum wage, here that is $7.50 an hour.

Basically, what this means is I CAN BUILD A PC NOW!

So you plan to get your parts on the week by week basis for building your PC? That's what I did on this system I'm on but only it was on a month by month basis.

It took patience and I had my i3 system to keep going but it was worth doing it. That way I bought quality/durable parts.

Secondly, I'd invite you to not just be in the "here and now." I know you may be young, but it's worth it to start saving up for later in life. You should see if you have any community groups for beginning investors.

Investing just 10% of your income can reap huge rewards later on. Look at what happens when you save up just 75 cents for every dollar you earn. The effects of compounding interest are insane when you start early. And this is keeping the contribution (the amount that you set aside each year) the same as you grow older. Of course, you will actually contribute more as you grow older, so just imagine how much bigger that number is going to be!



Contributing just under $37,000 total over your lifetime (until age 65) nets you almost $300,000 (!!!!) in retirement savings!

It all look good on paper but inflation probably will kill it.

Do a little research, man.

The whole point of a 401K or IRA is to make your money work for you while beating the rate of inflation. Doing nothing with your money certainly doesn't do anything to combat inflation.

P.S. - that was a modest 7% ROI in the diagram above. Inflation rates are much, much lower than that.

My how your life must suck with that kind of attitude.



Congrats Craig, glad you found something. Please do yourself a favor and start putting some of that money away for college or for retirement or for something other than spending it all right now.
