Time for another list. This one is a tad different. Would you like to save 10K in one year? Are you determined, willing to do anything (legal!) to save that kind of money? Then this list is for you. Just do these simple things, and I guarantee that you will save 10,000 dollars, this year!!!
If you are super-serious about getting out of debt, then you could do the above things and guarantee some super-mega savings. Just think, if you saved 10K this year, and put it into a decent mutual fund averaging a 10 percent annual return, in 30 years your 10K would have turned into over 150,000 dollars!!!
Now, I know that the above numbers are not “perfect” and do not represent the exact monthly or weekly cost for certain items, but it does give you an idea of some of the “radical” steps you “could take” if you really, really got intense about getting out of debt and saving money.
Edit – I was rereading this post and I kinda wish I would have left the “but won’t” out of the title. I wrote this post more than 6 years ago, when I didn’t realize that so many folks WERE working hard, to get out of debt and save money. So, enjoy the article and ignore the “snark”. Thanks! -NCN
