I’ve been scrooged!

(just some fun, vaguely related to money)


Million Dollar Journey had a really fun post that appealed to the voyeur in me. He asked his readers, how much do you tip?

As the holiday season approaches, if you want to be a santa, not a scrooge, check out the blog’s responses and see how you stack up.

I was tagged by personal finance blogger ‘wooly woman’

for the meme “What ideas did you have, prior to being 10 years old, about money that turned out to be totally and amusingly wrong?” – the meme initiated by Mr. Cheap (who as you can imagine has a lot of things to say about money!)

Given that I make a living from coaching people about money, you’d think I’d have a vast repetoire of goofy experiences toOrange Juice draw from for this … but alas, absolutely the only thing I can recall is that I thought orange juice was really, really expensive and for “rich” people. I have no idea where I got that idea – my mom would be horrified. Possibly it’s connected to having grown up in Yellowknife, where oranges were as exotic as guava in my mind.
