Less than 5 years ago I was working for $1000 for the summer. Not much to live off of, but enough when you live with your parents rent free and have virtually no bills.
Well could be a few reasons why you can't save up.

1, you now own a house.
2. you drink to damn much, lmfao
3. you own a FORD.

should I go on,

hehe

I've seen that rust-bucket! Duct tape wouldn't sick to it, and bailing wire would just crumble the rust...
