I can't help but feel really jealous reading some of the post on this forum, there are people on here that buys new smartphone every year, like come on now, what line of business are you guys doing to afford all these luxuries? I'm just tired of working a 10 hour degrading shift job, so many things I want to do in my life that I can't do

I don't consider myself rich (cost of living is expensive in L.A.) but I buy the latest iPhone every year (actually bgt the 8+ because I didn't like the X) and give previous version to my son. I'm an accountant and the misses is a teacher.

There is a wide spectrum of folks here on HoFo ranging from people who get free government paid cell phones and service to people who truly can afford to buy a $800 phone every year. Most of us are somewhere in between.

Personally I work as a computer systems analyst. That does not pay enough for me to consider myself rich, but I am comfortable. I could afford to buy a $800 phone every year, but I don't. That would be wasteful. I don't spend money or give it away. I invest it and avoid budget busters. Why anyone would spend $800 for a phone to jam in their pocket with coins and keys, drop or lose is beyond me. My several years old $130 flagship phone works well enough.

Channel your anger into a plan to get ahead. Since you and I were not born into wealth delayed gratification is a fact of life.

The richest person I know drives a beat up old clunker everyday and gets used phones all the time. He sometimes gets a new phone but not that often.

He actually looks poor when buying a slurpee with dimes but he does have a nice house and one nice car in the garage (a brand new Corvette)
