Rich vs Poor Debate - Our Take
- Created on 11 December 2013
A growing controversy festers surrounding a list of 20 habits posted to Dave Ramsey’s website. A blogger, Tom Corley, developed the results from a small study on the habits of wealthy people versus the poor. The implication is non-wealthy can adopt these habits to improve their lot in life. Everyone knows I love stats. So I drank the list right up. I was even emboldened slightly because although 94% of the wealthy surveyed do not watch reality TV, they did find 6% who did. Yes! All is not lost because I haven’t shaken my Real Housewives of Atlanta habit.
I’m Worth It

I’m currently investigating the cost associated with attending a family member’s wedding in oo-la-la Hawaii late next summer. So far, I can tell you, 1 week in Hawaii with a flight for three from Chicago is shaping up to cost a pretty penny. I love this family member to pieces, but the cost of attending this wedding may break me and our budget into a few pieces. I haven’t ruled the trip out entirely. If you know of any great deals, please holler at your girl!
Thoughts on Thankfulness
- Created on 27 November 2013
I try to continually count my blessings. However, the Thanksgiving season tends to put a point on that idea. Possibly because we slow down from the hustle and bustle of life long enough to take stock of what we have. Spending more time focusing on areas of gratitude stops me from pining over what I’m missing. I’m reminded of a great quote:
"We may not be where we want to be today, but we are further along than where we were yesterday."
