"“We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.” Dave Ramsey
A reoccurring theme in my family/friends/community is the constant budget battles between buying more “stuff” vs. investing in more experiences, for entertainment and family time. In my experience, more stuff never satisfies. It is just costs money, is more to take care of and more to fix. More experiences, on the other hand, make lifelong memories and many times don’t break the budget because they are cheap or even free. I remember as a young dad paying a ton of money for large Lego sets (stuff) only to have the kids appreciate coloring with dad on the cardboard box they came in (experience) more than playing with the Legos. Does anyone else ever run into this and what do you say to help people get it before they bust their budget?
