Food For Thought

I heard an interesting fact on the radio last night: 80% of millionaires drive used cars.

I love it.

It pairs nicely with a quote I read years ago that said, "The first step to becoming a millionaire is to stop living like one."

Just a little financial food for thought on this Friday afternoon.

Hope your day is rockin'!

  1. Interesting. Not to detract from the wisdom of your post because you certainly makes some valid points, but I must say that not only can millionaires buy a better used car than me, they have the $$$ to keep the used cars running as well as have ready cash to buy another used car when repairing the old one costs more than it's worth. The rest of us have to keep throwing money on a worthless car so we can go to work to earn $$$ for the next repair bill. Que sera sera

    On another note, my day's rockin'!!! Hope yours is too!

  2. Loving the financial food for thought! Living below your means even when you can afford the best is definitely a smart move. I have a friend that works in the movie industry and he and his wife have always lived below their means and are very thrifty with their money. Alot of his peers were all living the high life on the same salary he was getting and a few of them have lost everything and one of his friends even killed himself. So no matter who you are living within your means is doable. I have been on both sides of this issue and some of my best times were when I was dead broke, the creativity flows. Happy weekend! xxoo :)
