Fatherly Tidbits - Living Below Your Means

Given the current economic crisis, due in large part to a glut of trash mortgages on houses more expensive than buyers can realistically afford, I find it an appropriate point to pass along another fatherly tidbit to my son about economic responsibility. I think our culture is terribly consumerist and spoiled. We are taught to expect rather than earn, to put on credit rather than save.

  1. My wife and I have learned that life is much easier when we live below our means. We don't experience the financial stress of trying to keep up with the Joneses.
