What Shapes Your Views on Money? – Penny Power!

One of the great gifts in my childhood was the circa 1988 Consumer Reports magazine Penny Power.  My Dad always had me stocked with a subscription and, oh, how I savored those issues.  They were always chock full of real kids’ assessments of toys I wanted too.  Did they last?  Were they fun for more than a day?  Did that tiny oven really make delicious mini-cupcakes?  

The great take-away from all those issues I read is that money is about choices, whether you are 8 or 40.  To build wealth, sometimes you have to pass on the Sea Monkeys.  In my next post I will share some thoughts on choices we make as adults that may be keeping us from building real savings.Image

    I forgot about Penny Power! I remember my parents had a subscription for my brother & I as well…maybe that explains things now 🙂
