    Default Ten Traits That Make You Filthy Rich

    I saw this article on Yahoo! News this morning and thought it described about 95% of the people here!

    I agree with the article & I agree that it describes many of the people here. But, for me even if I were penniless I would still be filthy rich...because I have a family that loves me and no amount of money can make up for that.

    Great article! I read "The Millionaire Next Door" when it first came out, courtesy of my aiming-to-be-a-millionaire sister. She made it, I didn't. BUT I do know our family finances are better off for developing the traits those millionaires interviewed had. Just keep at it long enough ladies (and gents) and you too, will develop healthy finances! We may not all become millionaires, but we can sure improve our family financial status using these traits.

    "People spend because they want to capture the excitement shown in advertisements. When you are satisfied with what you have and your life (not trying to live like those on TV), your finances will be in a lot better shape."

    6. Creativity
    "The economy and our earnings don't always match our expectations.
    Unexpected developments wreak havoc to elaborate financial plans. When this happens, changes are needed to deal with the new circumstances. Creativity is essential to accomplish this.
    Creativity allows you to make something last longer rather than purchasing it when you don't have the money. It means juggling money to stay out of debt rather than simply paying with a credit card. It means finding a cheaper alternative when money is tight.
    In these ways, creativity plays a large role in keeping finances in order."
    Definitely sounds like us.
    " May we never let the things we canít have or donít have or shouldnít have spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness, let us not forget it. One of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have."
    -Richard L. Evans
