i huys I've got $1,000 to work with. I want virtually nothing. Opening a bank account would be dumb - the interest is so small that with price inflation and degrading economy any interest I may acquire would be at least even and therefore not matter. Considering I'm 15, I'm still getting food, transportation, housing, etc, free, so I have no use for it there. I've decided since I have about 2.6 years left before I am on my own, I want to use the time to put together as much money as I can using the $1,000 I have right now. Anyone have serious ideas how to make something out of this? Keep in mind I am 15 so that limits some options, I am not willing to become a drug trafficker either.
