If I didn’t have to pay rent, I could have all of my debt (both credit cards, my line of credit and my savings account overdraft fees) paid off in a year easily. All it would take is the money that I currently pay toward rent would go to the debt. Now I probably would not bother to do so, honestly. I would probably take a couple trips and see a couple of countries and eat french toast in them. But even so I could handily be debt free in three years or so. This just goes to show a point that I’ve always assumed was correct: Being homeless is clearly the most financially sound way to be. If only I didn’t need a place to keep all my stuff. And also to sleep. Apart from that, I bet the homeless are laughing all the way to the bank.
Twenty-four times ten
is two hundred and forty.
That was easy math.
Doing math also brought me another realization. There’s this “global experiment” (whatever that means) that challenges people to go through a month with only six items of clothing for a month. Since this doesn’t count socks and underwear and you are allowed to count multiple copies of the same item (example: all blue jeans count as one), I can pretty much say that I have unwittingly participated in this experiment, like, several times. Wasn’t hard.
