  1. I don’t think the full picture is shown here.
    I don’t get much SS each month, but I do save it and keep hidden at home for emergencies.
    Those without savings are spoiled, spend more than they have, and have no concept of tomorrow.
    I could have a cell phone…cable….eat out daily…buy name brand food and clothes…new car….but I DON’T!!!
    When my husband had brain surgery, I needed nothing and paid ahead 3 months on monthly bills!!
    THAT is worth not keeping updated with latest styles, saving by buying from CL, and driving a 14 year old car.
    When this nation collapses, I have years of food stored and supplies–insurance.
    This generation is in real trouble.
