    Well the lawn game has helped me get out of serious debt after 1 and a half years! I had a total of $16,743.00 in debt from credit cards that I abused awhile ago. I have been sadly paying about a $1,000 a month for a year or more. I just mailed my last check in as we speak to them.

    Now I look at it as I have a FREE grand each month to play with or invest into something! Life aint so bad.

    If you don't need that money, I would start socking it away into some type of retirement account. $1000/mo can add up fast, especially in the right investments.

    I see you are 22 years old. If you have a grand a month then are you living at home rent free? Enjoy while you can.

    My next estimated tax payment goes out before the 15th of Sept. And I pay my bussines insurance bill in full every month. Along with my monthly Insurance for my Work vehicle and along with my car.

    I was living on my own since I was 17 years old. I just recently moved back in with my mom just over a year ago because my little brother went off to college at F.S.U. She does make me pay $400 a month in rent and I do all the handy work and crap, but that includes the works, free food, electric, and cable. I will take advantage of this while I can, and save it all or something.

    Learn and profit from your mistakes.
    Use that $1000 a month to buy stock in a credit card company. :rolleyes:
