Best Money Quotes to Build Your Wealth Series – 4

Will Rogers - Money Quote

“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned…to buy things they don’t want…to impress people they don’t like.” – Will Rogers

Have you heard this one before? Will Rogers definitely hit the nail on the head in terms of budgeting. I mean, where do we draw the line between what we want and what we need? When budgeting, we should ask ourselves if we really want something or if we are buying it to impress someone else. If that is the case, it is better left on the shelf.

It doesn’t help that 8 out of 10 of Americans are in debt (source CNBC.com). Money management has been left behind as we view commercials showcasing the “cool” guy in the car with a bunch of hot girls, the best hair, best clothes, and the best life! He is living “the good life” we all want, right? It is because of advertisements such as these that most people feel what they have is never enough and going into debt for “the good life” is as easy as a stroll in the park.

Yes, my friends…Advertising is at an all-time high. You may not realize you want that new lamp until you see a perfectly placed store display at Target and the lamp starts calling your name. After watching one cartoon, my kids now want three different toys they didn’t even know existed until the said cartoon was complete.

It seems the latest and greatest has replaced any concern for sticking to a budget. Credit cards are the norm and people spend on a whim without realizing the full consequences. These consequences of spending without a budget include the following:

    • Huge debt
    • Paying interest
    • Paying more for items because of interest
    • Losing your car
    • Losing your house
    • Unneeded stress and anxiety
    • Bankruptcy
    • Debt collectors

Suze Orman - Money quote

For those of you that don’t know Suze Orman, she is a financial guru, New York Times best seller, motivational speaker, magazine colunmist and Emmy award winning television host. She is known for her “Can I afford it” series, where she allows her viewers to call in and learn if they should spend their money on a wanted item or trip. Nonetheless, she teaches people to get their affairs in order including budgeting, investing, retirement, life-insurance, and living wills.

My husband and I used to watch her show together on Saturday nights before we had kids (I know, what a fun date!). Her advice was astounding and really helped us to have some great money conversations and set financial goals as a couple.
