Do you watch your money better now you are older or do you say; it's time I got what I want?


I love nice things as well as anyone but I cannot stand to be in debt so I say no to many things but without feeling cheated. I like my life and enjoy what I have. How about you? Have you bitten off more than you can chew? Photo by esl.culips

    It is much to think about sometimes but as long as we don't cheat ourselves too bad I think saving is better.

    65 is best time to purchase insurance for you can get it without health questions very low & it is a very small window of time is why I mention it in case you don't know of it. Mom got hers for $100 a month that paid everything Medicare didn't!

    Isn't that the truth; we will decide to make ourselves happy with a purchase and then not enjoy it for being sorry!

    I know; it does seem impossible to get any money ahead at times; which we all should do in case of emergency if nothing more. I wish I had gotten more into investing but today they seems a scary thing to do.

    Great advice Sparklea; I am the same way, if I don't have it I don't spend it. Credit is the worst thing that happened to anyone! Look at the US! lol

    It does seem we see many times parent handing over to ungrateful children that would have been much better off without such generous parents. I know a few!

    I can't say that my mom did that well with me but I did work for quarters at the age of ten to buy her presents and have spending money and I learned from Mom and Dad to not be in debt. That one has done me so much good and I am proud of that alone.
