If you ask your friends the question, “What are the main keys to wealth?” you will most likely get a wide variety of answers. If your friends are not wealthy themselves, they might give you answers like, “Having good credit” or “Job jumping to increase your income.” But, if they actually have wealth themselves, then they might tell you to rid yourself of your debts or even to reduce the number of depretiating assets that you own.
As I continue to grow older and more mature, I am beginning to realize that there is another important factor in retaining your wealth, especially in your old age.

While it is admirable to make a thousand dollars per month, it can be just as beneficial to save a thousand dollars.Have you ever really thought about how much you could save if you took a real look at your current bills?
About a year ago, I figured I was spending as little as possible, but I wasn’t budgeting my income or expenses at the time.

The Rising Need for Cleaning
Have you noticed the latest trends in America today? Specifically, the percentage of women in the workforce? For the past few decades, more and more women have been hanging up their aprons and have taken their skills into the workforce. Not only that, but the average couple has inflated their lifestyle because of the additional income, which then gets them trapped into working longer and harder days to keep up with the bills.
So when is there time to clean? There really isn’t. And since the average couple now has a beefier income, they are willing to pay out some additional money to get their homes back into shape.
