Santa Claws makes a list, checks it twice. Keep a list what objects the money
bought, you'll know where the money went.
Just what everyone wants: stuff you got for "a deal".
That's the garbage that goes straight to the Deseret Industries after
Christmas. Make everyone some good cookies, and call it done.
He is newly married. I assume no kids. I'm all for buying something like a
tv. But why call that Xmas shopping? Buy for both parents and spouse
gift, or the tv is their gift to each other. Exchange with less people.
Bargain and frugal are not complimentary attributes for any consumer shopper of
any age. There is a big difference, good consumers do value shopping. That means
getting your money's worth and more. Durable goods should last 20-30 years
and most of today's consumer products barely last a few years. Another
attribute of a good consumer shopping is not wasting money to maintain their
status quo with technology or product updates.I also doubt that the
millennials know what income limited and cash spending means either. This group
tends to follow bad advice of banks and financial agency's by irresponsible
income management and have never read any of the terms and conditions of any
credit card or debit accounts where there are up to 50 fees singly or in
multiples attached to accounts. If a person or family lives and worries about
credit scores they are financial victims of fraud and corruption in the banking
industry.Its too bad they are on the path of never a peaceful day
nor ever have the freedom of financial independence and life span will be much
shorter than their great great grandparents.
Frugal?To me this so-called millennial generation looks much more
"entitled" than "frugal"
