trust me the iopener is a rather $$$ hobby. the $150 price tag is just the beginning. expect to pay up to at least $300 total.
when my family immigrated to this country from the fall of our other country, we had no other assets besides the clothes we worn. eating rice and fish sauce wasn't that bad at all as a kid.
after many years of education and development our nuclear and extended families have succeeded carreerwise and financially. Still the rich live like the poor, they are the same. You can only eat so much.. as i would mention this to my friends about Bill Gates.
You do have an advantage being poor and that is the every day life you see you really can come to understand. On the other hand someone who is financially ahead may have been undefinately occupied himself in labor. You'll also have a greater satisfaction in change when you do enjoy better luxuries, as to a rich guy it's just another days things.
With access to the internet you can play stocks. start small, at buyandhold.com you just need $25 minimu deposit, and monthly fee of just $10 for unlimited trades. get started on this financially potentious hobby. this is the kind of hobby that is a win win situation.
the more money i make and create the less i see of it from the higher end things i buy. maybe it's because of age, but i don't see my life being any happier or better than it was when i was a child.
