My friend, Cherie Lowe, a.k.a. the Queen of Free, delights in sharing her family’s story of paying off over $127k in debt. Through speaking and the written word, more than anything, she longs for people to realize there is HOPE for their finances. Find her online at www.queenoffree.net and mark your calendar to pick up her new book Slaying the Debt Dragon, due to release September 2014. I asked Cherie to pop over to MargaretFeinberg.com today to share some tips and tricks about Black Friday:
We love the thrill of a great deal. We live for the number circled in red at the bottom of our receipt, declaring to the world just how much we saved.
We celebrate holidays that bring with them sales. Labor Day! Columbus Day! Black Friday!
We can't wait to tell you just how little we paid when you compliment us on our outfit/home decor/vacation photos. Bargain hunters unite. We are a tribe populated by people of pennies pinched, percentages saved, and presents low in price but high in value.
That being said, as a community of Money Saving Lords and Ladies, we need to be sure to guard our hearts and protect our pocketbooks in the face of temptation. Every sale isn't for everyone and every deal, no matter how sweet, isn't always a wise choice for your finances. [Tweet this]
