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

I don't agree, Good money can mean any number of things depending on the context and I don't think good money is synonymous with well off either.. Please do find the study you think applies here, I'd be interested in reading it too. Thanks.

My highschoolers do the majority of their own laundry... Doing laundry now is like a hobby.

"I don't think good money is synonymous with well off either." --------- If making good money doesn't mean you are well off, then what is good about it?

I didn't found a study, but I found an article that makes sense to me. People's definition of 'rich' is subjective and is usually twice their current net worth. http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/08/23/how-rich-is-rich-where-america-draws-the-wealth-line/

This.  I am not a house elf or a maid.  Every single person who lives in the house has a responsibility for its maintenance.  There is no one in the family whose job it is to pick up after other members of the family.

Yep, and even with doing younger son's laundry. Not having to sort through and figure out what belongs to who helps a lot too, lol (both boys wear close to the same size shirts!).

"People's definition of 'rich' is subjective and is usually twice their current net worth."

Interesting. My definition of "rich" is vastly different, as well as vastly more than 2X my net worth.

One time hubby forgot to run the dishwaher before he left for work. Unfortunately, I was in "a mood" when I mentioned it to him. He thought he was being funny when he commented about how it was my job, and I should have done it before I left, or told him that he needed to do it. I went off on him about how I'm not his mother, and if he noticed that the dishwasher needed to be run, then he damn well better run it and not wait for his "wifey" to tell him to do it.

Exactly my point.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
