They had an interesting show last night. It was all about consumer debt. Showed a couple that was on the brink of bankruptcy. The guy worked a well paying job & the wife worked out of the home for the most part. They lived in a 4,000 square foot home, had an indoor theatre, 2 new cars, & plenty of other "things". They also had 2 or 3 children. Anyway, they appeared to be living the American dream, but were far from it. They were talking with a financial advisor who tried to tell them what they needed to do to prevent the loss of everything. I don't think the wife was very happy to hear the suggestions. It included selling their house. This got me thinking on how you can look at someone & assume they must make a lot of money by the things they have, but in reality, they probably do not own any of the things they have. This couple also had $60,000.00 in credit card debt. During the interview they stated how they took more vacations last year than ever because they were stressed. It amazes me how people think. Why would you spend money on vacations if you were about to lose your home? They also showed a short segmant of a very frugal couple that were debt free. They had 5 kids & made less than $35,000.00 a year. I wish they would have talked with them more. They basically said people always made fun of them & called them names for being so thrifty. I was impressed with how they did things & stayed debt free. Too bad more people don't think of being debt free as a good thing. Did anyone else get to see the show? Dave Ramsey was on it for a minute.
