Growing up??? I don’t remember.
I know she has given me the same wise advise as an adult — “There will always be bills.”
In other words, don’t let finances prevent you from following your dreams. Fortunately, there are no more debtors’ prisons as long as you’re attempting to make monthly payments.
Of course, you need to save and we are fortunate enough to have a rainy day fund again, but that hasn’t always been so and it’s been a long time coming. College debt, medical bills, cross-country moving expenses, down payments on houses, car repairs, and the like are examples of things that have drained our savings.
