I found it way easier to save when I started working a white collar job. Back when I was doing manual labor and a 10 hour shift ended, you're so euphoric all you want to do is go out and blow all your cash to forget your exhausting and crappy work day.


...yeap and go out and blow my cash is what I did and had a great time doing it too.  Certainly have some memories you couldn't pay for now... :)  Still I thought I should do the responsible thing and sit down with my son as my Dad did.  I am not really disappointed he is ignoring my advice.  You can't put an old head on young shoulders and maybe you shouldn't even try.

I'll do the same with my son or daughter. I think with kids some advice sticks and some goes in one ear and out the other but kids remember stuff longer than their parents think they do. I think they're also good at understanding what advice is non-negotiable and what is "take it or leave it".

Oh come on! Don't leave us hanging...

In my case I wish I didn't squander all that money I saved while living at home. Not to mention learning how to control my spending while out partying (which I still can't do).
