You could walk down the street begging for people to loan you money. You could tell people how sorry you are when you don't pay them back.
Or, just think, you could start walking down the street with a lawnmower in the summer time and a snow shovel in the wintertime, and a rake in the fall, offering to work. There are 24 hours in the day. You can get money, all you gotta do is work for it. It's not even dull or unpleasant, really.
Rich people earn money, and then buy stuff they can afford with PART of their money. The rest accumulates. If you want to be rich, that is what you do. When you earn more than you spend, you are gaining wealth. It really is that simple.
If you want to be poor, one good way to is to pay other people as much interest as possible. A good strategy to stay poor is to have bad credit, because then you'll have extra extra extra high interest. It really is that simple.
PS I love dirocyn's story. I once bought a car for $500, drove it 50,000 miles, and donated it to the salvation army. The retail book value when I donated it was $2800. I was in the 28% bracket incrementally, so I saved $784 on my taxes.
