Am I Obsessed with Money?!

At the annual family Easter Egg Hunt, Little Ripples was excited to find quarters in some of the eggs.  So I started telling my sister how Little Ripples is "obsessed with money" and before I could finish to explain how she goes around the house finding change and asks to help pick up so she can earn more change for her pickle jar, my sister interrupted me and said "hmmm, sounds like her mother".

That really got me thinking.  Is that how people view me?  Obsessed with money?  To me someone who is obsessed with money would have expensive purses, jewelry and name brand items.  That's totally not me.

I like earning money because I like what I'm able to do with money.  I like having money in the bank because it makes me feel secure.  And I like checking my bank account and budgeting my money.  I love to talk about finances and learn about new ways to save money.  And when I do find a new way to save money, I love to share that info so others can save money too.

Well... Maybe I am obsessed a little, but in a good way.


  1. That is why I started writing my blog. I think most of the people in my life were tired of hearing about my frugal ways and adventures. So I started a blog to write about them instead :)

  2. Same here. I guess I didn't realize I talked about it that much. This has been a great outlet for that.
