Well today I am not talking about saving money I am talking about being grateful. I was watching a documentary on the Philippines and how they live. The people who live there are dirt poor and they struggle everyday with the things that we take for granted like running water and food. I was watching this story about these kids who were fathered by foreigners because their mothers were selling a good time to these foreigners just to put food on the table. I watched men from different parts of the country stop by father a child and get gone. The whole thing was so sad. It go me to thinking that the things that I fuss about when it comes to money is small compared to how some people are living around the world.
So yes I am very grateful to have been born in a country that allows me my basic needs and some luxuries if I want them. Thank you god for your blessings.
Hello Family How are you today? I wanted to share this guys videos with you because he travels on next to nothing to some cool places. He has been traveling since he was 18 and I think he's 44 now. That's a lot of traveling to many countries with little to no money. He tells you how you can travel cheap in certain countries. I love his videos and I am jealous.

I was watching a few videos yesterday that talked about moving Overseas because the cost of living is cheaper. One guy moved to Twain and one moved to the Philippines. In their video they both gave you a glance of what it would cost to live there. Like in some Asian countries you can get a nice looking apt for about $250 dollars a month. The food ins some of these Asian countries is pretty darn cheap . For example a good steak dinner would cost you about $9. but you can eat for less then $2 a day in some countries. The Philippines is about the same cheap living and eating but.... The health care I am not so sure about. Yes the dentist and doctors might be cheaper but what kind of doctors and medical staff are you getting for that kind of money.
There are some draw back to living in a foreign country like the dollar rate and the language. The living conditions. Let's not forget the different insects that they have over there that we don't over here . I hate bugs!!!
My questions to you is with a nice social security check or a pension . Knowing that the U.S is expensive to live. Would you ever consider moving to a cheaper place like a foreign country so that your money could go further?
Let me express that I have seen the good side of living in a foreign country but I feel the bad side of living there would outweigh the good ones. What do you think?

Saw this in my e mail today and I wanted to share it with you. NCL is offering Free stuff at sea and the deposit is only $1. I think I could find a dollar. All I have to do is rolled some coins. I was looking in to cheap cruising out of New York. I try not to pay no more then $2000 for two people with a lot of perks for my $$. I did not see anything that I liked but I am still looking.
For a cheapskate like me if I can get free stuff and cheap cruising that would be a great vacation for me because my hotel, restaurant and entertainment is all in one place. Plus I am going to places that I have never been to sounds good to me.
