Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best.
I think I've talked about Suze Orman on here, a long time ago. I'm not sure how we got started watching her show, probably Oprah. Today, we asked my bil and sil to be Chase's guardians if anything were to happen to us. We are working on our will and living revocable trust and that's the step we are on. If we didn't watch Suze weekly, we probably would not be working on a will or living revocable trust. While I was reflecting on our day in the shower tonight I started thinking about how much Suze has impacted our life. Hubby has always and will always be a saver. But she has helped me to control my spending. Who knows when we would have bought a house if we didn't watch Suze. Because we watch Suze we saved up so we had enough to put 20% down and still had an emergency fund. If we didn't watch Suze we would probably have smart phones. Today when we were hanging out with the bil and sil they asked us if we would ever get them. I said probably not. To me, it is a waste of money. I used to dye my hair every 6 wees and get manis and pedis. I haven't done any of those since right before our wedding. We have never belonged to a gym. We don't have a nook or kindle. I get books from the library. Because of Suze we would never lease a car or co sign a loan. Because of Suze our son has a 529 college savings plan. A lot of good can come from watching a tv show! I highly recommend watching it. We love Suze!
