This is my philosophy (kind of) of life.
Hear me out.
When rich people run out of laundry detergent they go buy more. Problem solved.
When poor people run out of laundry detergent they use dish detergent. At some point, if they still can’t afford to go shopping, they run out of dish detergent and have to use shampoo. They use the shampoo to wash clothes, to wash dishes, and, of course, to wash their hair. Eventually, they’re out of everything instead of being out of laundry detergent.
Rich people use money to solve problems and keep moving forward with their lives. Poor people “make due” with what they have on hand because they can’t afford to replace things…and eventually it leads to EVERYTHING being in jeopardy.
Money does buy happiness.
Life is like soap.
