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 to 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.
