^ Hey man, sounds like a good idea. Just an FYI, I deleted two other identical posts you had in different places around the boards-- only one post is necessary.

I'm going to keep on working at it!!!

"Just an Idea"
I think I figured out a way to save money and make money by saving it!!!

***CD Accounts***

If I kept $50,000 in a CD account @ 5% Intrest a month.

5% of $50,000 = $2,500

$2,500 a month for 12 months = $30,000

I could put the $50,000 back into a new CD Account every year and Keep the $30,000 for just leaving my money alone for 12 months.

THAT'S $30,000 A YEAR FOR DOING NOTHING!!!!

I totally think i'm going to do this!!!!

I could totally travel for the rest of my life and never have to work again!! I mean $30,000 a year isn't a whole lot.... I won't be rich, BUT I will be able to backpack for as long as I wish and never have to worry about getting a job or money ever again.

It sounds to good to be true... I know I'll run into some problem with this and it won't really work out that well... But if it does "WATCH OUT ROAD, HERE I COME" I'll be backpacking for the next 20 years... lol

I want to see what some other people think about this, please leave your thoughts...
