Living below your means is the only way to build wealth. I hope you meant that you strive to increase your means.

I saw flyers yesterday in a $500,000 and up neighborhood with bold letters $30 cuts and then they put coupons on the back to get 2 free weeks. I am not saying wealthy people should pay more but the lawns in the area are difficult with the hilly terrain and have lots of trimming. I just don't see how you can mow a lawn like those for $30 and come out ahead.

I with you, make a decent honest living and spend less than you make will provide you with money to get by on the lean times.

last season I did some hedge and shrub trimming for a few clients. they asked what I would charge to mow their lawn. standard lot so I said $30 including weedeating. figured it would take me half hour. they both told me the "other guy" only charges $15.
