Suze Orman would be upset

November 11th, 2013 at 12:31 am

This has been a busy and spendy weekend. The expenditures were planned so I'm not going to beat myself up over them, however. Suze Orman might disagree, though!

We went to concert and I had purchased the tickets last summer. Since it was in a town an hour away, we decided to make a day of it. We had received our Christmas Club check so we did some Christmas shopping, had a nice dinner out, and went to the concert. It was a fun time, although a late night. It made getting up for church a little difficult, but we did it.

Today was spent cleaning and fixing. DH raked leaves and cleaning gutters. I did some housework as well and then replaced our mailbox. Seems the neighbor kids liked playing with the door a few years ago and weakened it. It finally fell off on one side. We bought the new mailbox last week as well as new towel rack that would replace the other one that we had tried to fix with no success. I have that replaced and clean towels. I also put peeled and cored apples in a Crockpot to make apple juice and applesauce, so I think it was a productive day.

My comment about Suze Orman...we watch her most Saturday nights and usually agree with her, but we have noticed she seems to want people to do nothing anymore, except save money. Or maybe that is just what we are picking up on. We have savings and investments, and our house is paid off and we don't carry balances on our credit cards. But somehow, I think she would say not to buy Christmas gifts, but invest the money instead. If we were in debt, I would agree, but I guess I'm getting to be a rebel to some extent. We think if we have money in the bank, no debt, we should feel like we can splurge and go out to eat once in awhile, take in a concert, and buy gifts.

    I don't listen to Suze Orman, but I sure think you are fine spending the money you did! I don't think I could agree with the no Christmas gifts if you have debt, but I do agree that Christmas should be done with cash!

    She would deny our family road trip next month too.
    Oh well, we are still doing it!!

    I think the message from her also is keep things reasonable and understand that there are other (maybe better) options for that money you're about to spend.

    I agree....I think everyone needs a little treat now and then no matter what their circumstances are.

    I enjoy watching her and think she usually has great advice, but sometimes I think she goes just a little too far.

    Have you ever tried making homemade apple cider vinegar? You can do it with the apple peels and cores. Just look it up on youtube. I am in the process of making my first batch.
