Clueless housewives

Ah, the simple little housewives whose husbands make all the money and pay all the bills. I see them regularly. They’re great at spending money, but have no clue how much comes in or goes out. He takes care of everything now, but if he dies or you split up, you’ll have no income, a mortgage to pay, and no clue about how all the money comes and goes.  Then, you’ll give new meaning to the term Desperate Housewives. Get a clue!!

On the other end of the spectrum, I met a very unique twenty-something Irish migrant whose dad taught her to start saving while she was very little. He taught her, “if you don’t have it in your pocket, don’t spend it” and about the art of “selective spending”. She has great habits, but strangely, not really any plan or goal for it all. Whats up with that? Interesting mix.

Do you know either of these ladies?

  1. It’s never too late to get a clue either.

    • This is true! Hopefully they get one before the wake-up call, too. What’s your best advice for getting the clue to begin with?
