Anyway, I ran across this tidbit from Dave Ramsey and it made me think. It’s fun to dream about winning the lottery and what I would do with that kind of money, but to Dave’s point it wouldn’t actually fix the issue. If you are a spender, like me, as opposed to a saver you will still be a spender. Just have more money to spend – which could be fun for a while. I’d love to be able to go shopping and not have to worry about the cost of things, but that’s not my reality.
So as usual, I will continue to pay my bills and imagine the fun to be had with untold wealth. And I will do more to control my money instead of it controlling me. How else will I be able to go on vacation?
It’s ironic that the only time I am good at saving money is when I am working towards a trip but that is the way my brain works. I need that tangible prize at the end in order to put the money aside. Good thing I love planning and taking vacations. 🏝
