Do I need it, or do I want it? Wealth wisdom.

Do I need it, or do I want it? It is a good and necessary question to ask before buying anything. I would like to say that each time the answer is “I want it,” I turn away without purchasing it. Most of the time, I do. The bigger picture of financial freedom is more important to me. I have never been one to splurge willy-nilly, mind you. Usually the wants are small ones. But those small wants, for some people, can turn into great big debt monsters. I think…

Jetpack Dreams – a new budget envelope!

I still want a jetpack. Today’s NaBloPoMo blog prompt sent me back to the 60s. The prompt asked this question: Pretending you have the expertise to make the product a reality, what do you wish you could invent? I didn’t want to invent one, but I dreamed of having a personal jetpack. As a child, I watched the Jetsons. I believed, deep in my heart that I would see the day when we all had cute little space cars that turned into briefcases, and robots that helped us with our homework. And…

Except for CBS Sunday Morning. The news magazine show debuted in 1979, and I am pretty sure I watched the very first one. Yes, I am that old. Charles Kurault hosted the show, starting the first…

13 Lucky – and Budget-Friendly Ways to Spend the Weekend

Today was a day that all paraskevidekatriaphobics dread. That long word is the scientific name for those who fear Friday the 13th. I think the day is lucky. The superstition may have taken hold in the early 1300s, when Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of Knights of the Templar. Not so lucky for the knights. No one knows for certain, but today the day is considered unlucky for some.     If you believe the day holds terrible things, it will. If you believe it can be a magical…

Honoring veterans on your road to wealth.

  I can’t let today pass without saying thank you to those who have offered service, and call for peace on all levels. Our lives are beautiful and unpredictable, and we all have been touched by someone who has selflessly put himself or herself on the line to protect others. The best way we can honor them is by practicing peace. Many of our veterans come back after their tours of duty to find a mountain of debt at home. Although the post-9/11 GI Bill was passed in 2008, approximately 40%…
