BIG Spenders, we all know one!

December 19th, 2012 at 11:32 am

I have an old friend who lives in another state, but he often posts on FB about what he is up too. Mostly it involves spending money. He recently purchased a new Cadillac, took a trip to Costa Rico and spent $1000 at Costco on Christmas decorations for his house and food for an upcoming party.

K is a lot of fun, always the life of the party! He has a "you can't take it with you" attitude. What worries me (in addition to his crazy spending) is that he works for a defense contractor and with deep defense spending cuts on the horizon, he may be in danger of being laid-off. He has worked there his whole life and only has a high school diploma, so I really worry that he will have a very difficult time finding employment. He is also over 50, a double whammy.

While I am careful with money, I do spend on activities that I enjoy, and have an active social life, but I budget for these things, so I don't feel like I am missing out on life because I am a saver!

Those Costa Rico vacation photos did make me drool just a little though! My next big vacation will be in 2014....saving for Hawaii!

    Well, you are thrifty person, same as me.
    I never throw money on everything I want, I spend money on my needs which is important. For example, I pay writer online to write my essay. Today being student is a big stress, because we need to write a lot and when I can't I have another person do it for me.

    I have two weeks to spend in Morocco in January/February. where might you go?

    I need to see culture, engineering, and maybe a bit of shoreline. I'd get a kick out of the chance to have two bases (maybe Casablanca and Marrakech), Essay Writing Help and go on day trips. any exhortation would be valued.
