Somewhere during this year I picked up “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. Reading the book made me realize how deep I was into the rat race. My monthly expenses, utilities, cell phone, insurance, cable, including food were like $2,700/month. Realistically, I was saving probably less than $500/month. I was the picture perfect, high earner and high spender. I realized that families were getting by on $50,000/yr and here I was, a single man spending so much money.
