Friday finances

So I heard a lot of chanting at school yesterday about tomorrow (today) being pay day, Woot!  Ha, That doesn't mean a lot to me but some of those teachers make good money and b/w that and the slip ins about money in a couple threads here I thought a thread would be fun..

How often are you/your DH paid

Do you discuss finances with your children?  To what extent?

Are you a spender or a saver

You never answered me Geschichtgal, do you speak to your parents about your investments and/or do they talk to you about theirs? We have always had an open communication in my family. I learned a lot from my dad.

I use a certified financial planner. But I don't pay her. My funds (and dh's) have a $20 yearly account fee. Since I make well over $20 an hour that's a good investment; I'd spend way more than 2 hours a year researching the thugs that my planner does. She's also a family friend. So I trust her completely.

Sorry, Chest, I think I have given out enough information (especially when it is usually used against me in later threads). Thanks for your concern though. Again, I am fine :)

If your dad recommended lifecycle funds as the smartest investments, I'm not sure that was the best advice.

My dad has a pension, and my mom has a mutual fund.  I have discussed both with my parents.

Ha! Thugs. Whoops. I'm quite certain my planner doesn't research thugs.
