Random parting thoughts

Posted by Kim McGrigg on 4/30/2008

On this final day of 2008’s Financial Literacy Month, I should probably try to say something inspirational. So here goes:

The quest for financial literacy should not be confined to any one month; achieving financial wellness is an ongoing journey that is well worth the trip.

Now, I am going to spare you from having to read inspirational money-related quotes from famous people. Instead, I am going to offer random, straightforward thoughts that I sometimes wish I could tell Advice Team writers, but don’t have the heart.

Don’t count on Social Security.
You will not win the lottery.
Writing “paid in full” on a check doesn’t mean diddly squat.
Hiding a car from the repo man never works out in the long-run.
The credit reporting agencies are not out to get you.
The state of your credit report is not good cocktail party conversation.
Shopping is not a recreational sport.
No one cares more about your money than you.
Collectors are people too.

And last, but not least: Control your money; don’t let your money control you!

Please feel free to share some of your random, straightforward thoughts.
