MONEY - WHERE DID IT GO?

There is an art to managing money wisely.
Mostly this involves having common sense.
Then you have to remember to use common
sense and avoid temptation.

I am not a bum.
A bum wants a free handout. a.k.a. Beggar.
A Hobo will work for a days pay,
Then travels from place to place looking
for jobs or adventure.

The subtle wisdom of a Hobo is my goal, and
the art of simple essential living is
sometime best demonstrated in the fun
ways. So I use my Hobo way of looking
at the world to explain how to live and
travel cheap.

Here are some simple guidelines and
an outline of the 5 types ways the money
leaves your pocket or disappears. If you know
where the money goes and the problems
you can make the money last the longer
and not go home.

When traveling the world and living in
the underdeveloped countries.

“It is twice as easy to save a dollar
than it is to earn a dollar.”


THE 5 WAYS MONEY DISAPPEARS

1. LOSE STUFF.
We lose a shirt, we lose pen, we forget
an leave a book in the hotel room. These probably
happens a lot more than getting robbed.

2. ROBBED
Pickpockets, scams, and people that bump
you and run off with your backpack.
The laundry keeps one of your shirts.
Your shoes get robbed from in front of your room.

3. BROKEN
We step on things, break things, or loan
a friend an umbrella and it comes back
broken.

4. BORROWED OR LOANED TO FRIENDS
We loan some money, we give them our
guidebook, and for some reason....
They do not return it

5. NOT SAVING MONEY
You could have spent less, but you spent more.


EARNING MONEY
To earn money in other countries is another
story. But to explain in simple term again.
When the normal person earns 10 dollars
a day it become very difficult to earn the same
money as you earned at home. So when I say
it is twice as easy to save one dollar than to
earn a dollar this is the truth. Maybe 5 times
as easy to save a dollar is more correct.

HOW TO HAVE COMMON SENSE.
I think common sense would say.
Just ask questions of everything.

START BY ASKING:
How do I lose things?
How am I robbed?
How are thing broken?
Who borrowed what? Why?
How can I save money?
Would it be harder to earn or save?

Whether you are rich or poor.
This Hobo Common sense applies.
Just keep asking these questions of yourself
and others and somewhere in the path you will
become a Barefoot HoboTraveler.
Or maybe a
Free thinker.


Just another day in Paradise!
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE...
Be a Hobo, and leave your mark.
