Carnival of Personal Finance #192: The Family Day Edition

For those of us in Ontario, it is Family Day and this year, it seems everyone is “celebrating” it (meaning all banks, and stores are closed).

As this is my first time hosting the Carnival of Personal Finance I figured Family Day would be a good thematic premise to build our list of submissions for the week from.

Family Day

Family Day

Each section will be advice that might typically come from a member of your family (with a rating on the value of the advice as well (at least my point of view)).

Fatherly Advice

We all know what kind of advice this is, “… I remember in my day we lived on $10 a week and we liked it…” and other gems about “… a penny saved is a penny earned…” from our Dad’s. Stoic advice to keep us walking the “straight and narrow” path of Personal Finance.

Motherly Advice

Enjoy Family day

Enjoy Family day

This is the emotional advice that tugs at your heart strings and maybe isn’t well based in facts, but is “emotionally smart”, like “… loan your dead beat cousin $300 I know he’ll pay you back…”, and other interesting statements like that.

Brotherly Advice

This is advice that may be a little weird and not exactly the best advice, but always with an interesting angle to make you at least wonder if it is good advice or not:

Spousal Advice

We all know this advice type, “… why did you buy the 1080i HDTV, when the dishwasher is still broken?”, and other useful “buzz kill” type pieces of advice.

Hopefully your family gives you as good if not better advice.
