Do you like to collect stuff?
And no I don't mean like this-
Just in general, do you enjoy collecting things that will make you money in the future?
Reason I bring this up is me and my lovely lady went to the credit union to cash in the coins saved over the past six months today.
Grand total ($497) bummer I was hoping for six.
Gave Norma half and we decided to stop and grab something to eat. (note for anyone looking to get in a long term relationship keep your finances separate. Wev'e been together for almost a decade and have not argued over money once)
Sooo! were sitting at the bar waiting for our burgers when she asks me a simple question-
Norma- So what are you doing with your cut?
Me- Well.. I owe my Mother a hundred beans for some Chistmas stuff I got for the niece and nephew on her AMZN account. Other $150 I owe to KO.
Norma- Wait... how could you owe KO money. And you just sent them a check not long ago.
Me- Ok well, I owe myself then. My plan is to send them $50 bucks a month ($150 quarterly) until the dividend buys me a full share. That way I'll be buying a full share every quarter and that share buys me more , it's actually mind boggling when you think about it.
Norma- So your collecting money.
Me- well yeah...
Norma- I tell ya John you are either brilliant or obsessed. This is just another thing for you to focus in on. When you were young you collected comic books.
Norma- After that you collecred those cards (Magic the Gathering)
Me- well yeah, made a killing selling them on E-bay.
Norma- You know your going to be rich someday.
Me- That's the plan babe.
