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've never said my husband is a pastor. I have said he works 60-80 hrs a week as a financial advisor. How exactly could he juggle that and ministry is a bit beyond my scope of understanding. We are involved in church. But I'm not sure at all how that pertains to the debate at hand...-Yes you said your husband is a pastor.  A jack of all trades LOL Travels and doesn't have time for you. You can say your a sahp but you work and don't get paid. You collect rent, deposit it and do repairs. People do that for a living LOL. It's a ft paying job for every one but you.

All you "ladies" are so horrible to each other. Why would you treat another woman that way?

A little late to the party, aren't you, Tinder? And clearly you're as clueless as Hazel about financial advisors. Not that I'm surprised. As I recall, you also claimed to have issues with customs at state border crossings. So forgive me if I don't give a rats patootie about your impression of what it is my husband does for a living--clearly you're living a different reality than the rest of us.

Financial planners only help people in debt and clean up their messes. There's no money there. People with money invest on their own because they can or they degreed professionals who invest.  Financial planners don't invest. They're a last resort before bankruptcy</p>

Uh, are you drunk Tinder? B/c you're usually coherent. IDK what they degreed professionals means...

I would love to see where I said my DH is a pastor. Put up or shut up, Tinder. Quote the post. And if I'm collecting rent, I'm getting paid, aren't I? You're not making any sense--you're just trying to antagonize me. And I'm not taking your bait.

Savcal2011-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.-Just $20yearly. Savcal2011.  Then it would be a lie if some one here claimed to make good money off the likes of people LOL.

I think perhaps Teapotz has confused "Certified Financial Planner" and "Consumer Credit Counselor"

Do you know what a pension is?

Do you?  Few companies offer pensions anymore, be lucky if yours does - so does my husband's.  It's hard to tell what kind of savers we are by what we write on message boards though.
