A thought from Will Rogers on money

I enjoyed the thought last Thursday from A Word A Day:

"Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like."

-Will Rogers, humorist (1879-1935)

One of the main goals we have for our daughters is to teach to effectively manage their money. We'll try to teach them:

1) To have the discipline to spend less than they earned
2) To only buy things they need and when they can afford it, to sometimes buy what they want
3) And never to buy something to impress others, especially people they don't like
