Dave Ramsey: Broke people shouldn't go on vacations

    Honestly, my take is this. In this day and age, most of your vacation should be funded with CC points, hotel and flight. I can't remember the last time I paid for either of those things. I know Dave says no credit cards but to me, if you're responsible, the perks outweigh the negatives.

    fukk all dat.



    i work hard asz hell. like real fukking hard.

    for like a longtime consistently.

    but when I vacation.... I go hard body without a care of expenses.

    what most people on the outside looking in miss is how hard I work. how much fun I don't have building for my family and future family that ain't even here yet.

    so when I'm in Berlin eating gold flakes and celebrating my baby's bday being chauffeured around town...you see me unwinding because I damn sure deserve it at that point.

    I challenge all men on this site to be the patriarch of your family. sacrifice more to give your family more.

    is it better to see smiles on their faces or you having a smile?

    ill end it with this.

    the best feeling in the world is knowing you can retire tomorrow while you still look young or if you die right now your family won't have any worries about money.

    Bruh, you made it clear on many occasions that you make really really good money.

    This is about being in debt, and spending on vacations, which I dont think can be justified.

    I've posted this before but Dave Ramsey spouts a bunch of noise about delayed gratification which is fine.

    Problem is Dave preaches about living off the bare necessities as if tomorrow is promised, sometimes it's good to just enjoy life and not simply live to work and pay bills.

    Dave will have you eating tuna fish sandwiches everyday, living in a tiny home or studio apartment paying the cheapest rent or mortgage, driving a 1987 Ford Escort, using a prepaid flip phone, and some clothes from the good will.

    That isn't living in my opinion.

    I respect your opinion. In my opinion having payments is not living.

    Unless you're paying for everything in cash which I doubt you're probably financing larger items such as a house and vehicles unless you lease which still is a reoccurring debt which still has terms.

    Even wealthy people like Trump for example go get loans. No one is paying for everything in cash no you not me no one.

    I have 15.5k left in my debt snowball. My last debt in the snowball is my car which yes I did Finance it because I literally had zero cash, neither did my family to be able to help me out. Crazy thing is I didn't take out a loan to get my Jeep I put zero money down. Only the Lord knows why I was able to get my Jeep zero money down.

    I realize that I may have to take out a loan to make a downpayment on a house but I'd like to think that I'm disciplined enough financially at that point where the loan won't be so overbearing. I understand your point you have to get a loan and there may be enough justification for doing so, I was just trying to make a Counterpoint to your gratification opinion.

    What? No it's probably because you agreed to make $600 payments every month

    I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    I disagree with this. Even people who don't make a lot need an escape. Vacations help stimulate the economy, and as long as a family doesn't overdo, every kid should get that experience growing up of going to Disney World/insert amusement park here.

    I still loved that trip to Universal back when I was 10 with the fam.

    One won't hurt.

    Good thread. Imo it about ONCE AGAIN ABOUT

    one 's REALITY - DESIRES- NEEDS- DUTIES paradygm

    That are different from the neighbourgh next door.

    'Lemmy where are you flying to this year? Im flying to the Seychelles'

    ' since i need to save money to finance an appartment i will stay home and learn how to cook asian food. Ill will make some little car trips in Germany.
    Fam you got money!! You ve just spent 18000 euros to finance you new 28000 euros car. Now you go on a 4500 euros trip plan. I respect you finance power.'

    ' No Lemmy i have taken a credit for this.'

    'But..'

    ' Dont start with that saving money and shit Lemmy again! YOLO!!! How do i look like staying home doing some gay shit like cooking new stuff!!! You will be the only guy staying at home in the neighbourhood, arent you ashame of this!! Man you are weirf. EVERYBODY TAKE SOME CREDIT TO FLY SOMEWEHRE. i got kids and they need to go to DISNEY!!!'

    I stopped the conversation there. The guy is another SOCIAL PRESSURE victim. He thinks that he has status just because he will go to the same hotel as @2stepz_ahead forgeting he will have to take a credit whereas @2stepz_ahead will just have to spend it.

    But hey he wants to have @2stepz_ahead respect and recognization not knowing the latter sees him as A FOOL WHO IS TAKING STEPS BACK with is financially CHILDISH actions.


    That what kills the middle class imo. We want to sit with James Harden at the strip club poppin bottles. We dont wnat to go to vacation cause we feel like it : we are competing against the neighbourgh, against @2stepz_ahead in the IC.

    you are missing the point which alot often do. it's not about me showing you I have money because I got it....I am telling you how I got it. try to see the message.

    I said I worked very hard and did not do for a long time. did you miss that part? usually when I talk about it, I say I used every dollar to get out of debt, to save and invest.

    while people buy new jordans every month...i buy $40 psir of sneaker once every two years.

    people buy bottled of alcohol at the club for $500. i buy it from wine an spirits for $30 an drink at home.

    people buy all the fly clothes, I shop at the discount rack at Macy's.

    all that gets skipped.

    you only see I post about how much I have?

    that should not stand out here. what should stand out is how I got it. why am I debt free. how am I able to do these things..

    its all about perspective.

    either you see someone who's stunting or you see someone you should learn to get money with. either way....it's something to learn.

    funny how the challenge was skipped over as well.

    but hey...

    good morning everyone. have a good day.

    None of this had anything to do with the thread or what I wrote. All good though.

    IT DOES !!! GOD DAMMIT ITS DOES!!!

    its a BEHAVIOR problem.

    Its a MATURITY PROBLEM.

    We have let EGO lead the dance of our lives.

    We have let GREED take over our heart

    We use LAZINESS as our shower gel.

    An inch of PATIENCE , PLANNING, DIFFICULTY, AND SENSE OF REALITY in front of us and we run away!!!

    If everyone took his advice the credit industry would probably collapse. It may result in the deflation of property values as well.
