The Joneses

                                           Hey Cheap Cheetah Family Happy Spring!!!

                 "Keeping up with the Joneses"

Whether you like the expression or not, a great many people do get themselves into deep financial difficulty by trying to have what others around them have, regardless of whether or not they can afford it, which is what the expression means.

You visit your friend and drool over his 60" TV only to come home to your 25" TV and decide you need to upgrade.

Your brother picks you up in his shiny new Lexus and suddenly your somewhat worn Chevy just isn't good enough any more.

Several of your neighbors have done landscaping projects in recent months and you feel like your house doesn't measure up and you need to bring it up to par with the others.

Your work buddies invite you out to dinner at a restaurant that's really out of your price range but you're too embarrassed to say no so off you go to drop a bundle on a meal that you don't really even care about.

There are dozens of things, small and large, that get people into trouble by trying to "keep up" with others.

Are you trying to keep up with the Joneses whoever they are? Well stop and start trying to keep up with the Homer Simpsons the family with the fun,  but simple life!
                                              Have a Great Cheap Cheetah Day!
