    I came across this tweet and it inspired me alot

    I’m in a saving mode currently, working my ass off literally. No life whatsoever but it is worth it wlhz3zrULC I’m happier than ever before. Alhamdulilah. :eating:Also the great thing about hard earned money is that you really don’t want to waste it in a matter of seconds, I’ve started to think at least more than twice if I really really need whatever I’m trying to purchase, in my life right now, and in what way it will effect me.

    I'll do like the Egyptians did and be buried with it. Me and my money will never part.

    Well said, give but don’t forget yourself. It will be tough at the beginning but don’t give in and stay focused and humble. Also don’t feel guilty about it wlh, I have been in that state before, it took me sometime to figure it out though. :icon lol:

    I was that person who would give when not even asked but indirectly knew they needed it. I’m not regretting it wlh and I’ll keep doing it but in a moderate way where I don’t ruin myself.

    I’m not saying completely cut off being generous but as you said when you are left with nothing that is not healthy either, you have to take care of yourself first before you can help other people.

    Also helping out a person one or twice is not an issue really, if you can, but being contantly the one people are relaying on can be very tiresome and you have to know where your limit goes.:uCkf6mf:

    Don't just dump it into a dead ass savings account or under your bed.

    Put it into decent yielding investments and the one that could bring you the biggest benefit is paying down the equity of the roof you live under.

    No point saving a couple cents every month while paying 30% of your income on rent.

    The down payment really isn't that high if you look around for some loan program.

    All riba though :hova:

    I notice that too, nothing like earning your own money bro. I actually bought my first car, a used acura legend in the 10th grade. it felt so good driving around south end and downtown area at night.

    hard work is fruitful, id definitely encourage kids to start doing side jobs. :)
