Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.  ~Bill Watterson

Well said. Anyways, if you haven’t noticed I’m getting into doing video blogging. I’m thinking about doing actual long posts instead of just quick ones but we’ll see how that comes along.

Thanks to everyone that has been watching a reading here. Without you there wouldn’t be anyone reading so I’m glad you’re here. I think my rankings are going to start kicking into gear and finally lowering. I’m currently around 114,000 but that’s good considering I was hovering around 117,000 this past week. So thanks for helping me with that. If you want to let other people know what you think about Financially Poor feel free to leave a review.

@DoughRoller The Bottled Water Industry is Out of Control

I completely agree. I have a water with pitcher I use. I never buy bottle water because…..well…because we already pay for it every month from the city so why would I spend more money on it? Exactly. It’s a waste of money and it is horrible for the environment that our kids are going to have to live in.

@EnemyOfDebt How Your Financial Decisions Can Impact The Family You Love

This is really something more people need to think about. And it can go many ways, perhaps you want to give your family everything so you charge up. But that’s not really what your family needs. They need food ,clothing, shelter, and your love. Just remember that and you’ll be better off.
