    Stop spending your money on drugs and start spending it on an education.

    Really, I'm not kidding.

    ??? I just had to wonder where this topic was going. Now I am curious how you manage it. Typically world travel requires a significant budget, I don't know about divine intervention, I mean do you click your heels together and away you go, or seriously how do you accomplish this?

    Grammar and punctuation is a wonder thing to use as well. It's a great tool to use. Run on sentences makes people sound less intelligent than they really are.

    That's one way he saves money, didn't have pay for all those pesky punctuation or shift keys on the computer.

    you're lucky if you're doing it by stowing away on freight ships and are not getting caught lol. its divine intervention if your whisked away in a divine ecstasy of flashing lights to find yourself in far away lands. other than these options, i have no idea how you're getting around the world with no money, but i hope this answers your question...

    This is way I look at money, because I just got my first Visa ever.. Because a guys got to get credit rating if he ever wants to buy a house.

    If you don't have savings to fall back onto then you shouldn't be spending money to begin with. I always have at least a thou to fall back on at all times. I couldn't live paycheck to paycheck. Save up to go on trips and work your ass off.

    You either have the money or you don't and if you don't you got to find a way to make it. 20 year olds, and i'm 22 so don't think i'm type casting because I'm still in that region of my youth should be working and or in school then around 25-30 if you want to see the world a little and you have a career to fall back on.

    I'd focus on getting money behind you. As shallow as it sounds its important.

    yeah i'm a bit hypocritical in saying this because i have little sense of fiscal responsibility, but i know its important to start saving now, in the early 20's, if you can. always save more than you spend- a hefty percentage of whatever you make- so that you don't have to work 'till the day you die. the goal is to have enough that in retirement, you can live off the interest of your savings/investments. living is expensive, if you want to enjoy yourself and have security while doing so... and ppl today seem to think almost as little of retirement as they do about death itself, wishing to just ignore it and hope it turns out for the best... how are you going to live, let alone with any quality, after retirement if you have nothing at that point? it takes a lot to get by for years without working, especially with the medical bills that'll be rolling in. seriously, again its funny that i'm the one saying this because i have a harder time hanging on to money than anyone else i know lol, but money squirreled away in one's 20's grows the most over a lifetime, and makes a huge difference in the long run- you just can't touch it. live within your means- and remember that people don't make money, and neither does working; MONEY makes money. the more you save, the more you'll make off of it, exponentially.
