Many younger folks (and older) today, just don't get it. It really takes very little to happen, for the world they know to stop.
They grocery shop week to week or maybe day to day.
They are totally overloaded with debt - big houses, fancy cars, shop, shop, shop...….
They have no emergency funds.
They think nothing bad will happen to them.
They have no clue how to grow anything.
They have no idea what they would do if the CRAP hit the fan tomorrow (cause they think it won't).
They have no idea how to live on less money.
They have no idea how to live below their means.
They have no idea how to use JUST what they have in new ways.
They have no idea how to cook - they are always eating out.
They have no idea about personal responsibility.
I could go on and on.
You all know some of these people too. Sadly I 'personally' know more that wouldn't survive than would. Most of them are in my family! I have tried and tried to reach them, BUT it isn't going to 'happen to them'. They just won't listen and they aren't responsible humans. It is sad.
That does not include you gals at all. WE all know what the consequences could be. We all have learned, taught, and educate ourselves daily in some way.
The reason IS SURVIVAL.
WE will survive.
