Dave Ramsey Wisdom

Here are some of my favorite things I pulled off of Dave Ramsey's latest facebook status updates:

"When budgeting/working on your plan...if you get off track, get back on. Don’t give up. Like a flat tire-you fix it & move on, you don’t poke holes in the rest of your tires!"

"Possibly the greatest waste in life is the gap between what you are and what you could become." ~Zig Ziglar

"Never co-sign...EVER." ~Dave Ramsey

These two made me think...

"At least half the domestic disturbance calls we get, the core problem is money. ~Police Officer that just called the show" 

"A new Forbes survey finds that 1/3 of Americans admit lying to their spouses about money & 58% of those said they've "hidden" cash."

I never want to be one of those couples. Talking about money is always better then lying and violence. One thing we've learned through this process is that coming together and working toward the same goals, makes us a stronger and better couple, even if facing the facts and truth is at times painful! 

And this....

"About 80% of all vacations are completely charged and the average cost of a vacation is $3,155". – Third Age Survey

Yikes! Imagine how much people end up paying after all the interest and fees are added to that total. I'd prefer a cheaper, paid for in cash, stress free spending vacation then whatever anyone does for $3,155!


  1. I am proud to say we are one of the 20% of families that pays for our vacations in all cash!! The whole thing is plan, plan and plan! The best way to travel and feel guilt free to spend quality family time and create long life time memories! We just planned and pre-paid for our first trip to Disneyland! It was so awesome!

  2. That's awesome and I totally agree!! :)
