If you get a raise than more power to you, but again bills will always get higher faster then your paychecks will. Something will always offset your wage increase rather you gain another bill or stay staus quo, thus you gain nothing. Never fails.
That hasnít been my experience at all. If it was Iíd still be living in the crap apartment I rented right out of college. Since Iím not, clearly my income has risen significantly over the years. Also, I shop my expenses regularly looking for savings. I donít have to, but I always want the best value for my money. If that means changing providers for things like insurance, Internet/cable, cell phones then I do. I also look for the lowest price I can find on any purchase Iím considering. Again, I donít have to anymore, but itís just ingrained in me to spend wisely.
