We need money to do the things we want. We also need money to pay for things we don’t want to spend money on.
As much as I’m a Frugal Fannie — grocery shopping at ALDI, packing my lunches and sharing a Netflix log-in with my sister — I still like to spend money.
Sure, I don’t want to be rich, but I don’t hate money either.
I actually care about money. (If you’re new here, you’re actually on a money blog. Hi!)
I care about money because:
It provides a financial cushion for when things hit the fan.
- I’ve been generously given money and good things, and I have the opportunity to steward them well.
- It allows me to live my best life now.
- It can be an indicator of a job well done.
