Should You Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford?

Here is a very technical video explaining the uber complex, forgotten school of thought that believes you should not buy stuff you cannot afford.


Betterment is one of my two favorite ways to earn interest on my savings! They have an awesome program for the Average Joe to save and invest simply and effectively. There are no minimum balance requirements and no transaction fees. Read my Betterment Review or open an account to get started earning now.

OK OK….I have been reading your blog for about over 2 weeks now and have been SO VERY much enjoying it. I must say this perticular post not only was smart advise but it made my day…..meaning anything that makes me laugh this hard as this video did, deserves to make my day.

Keep up the great work!

@Ashley and Christopher:

Glad you like. Every time I watch it I just want to laugh, but also cry… because of the state of our nation and the state of our people.

Our debt issues are alarming, but boy isn’t it nice to be able to sit back and just laugh at it every once in awhile? 🙂



great video. that use to be on youtube, but they must have removed it.
