  1. I need to clean up my digital clutter…

  2. That article on our perception of wealth is interesting. I love articles like that. For my husband and I, I think we spend like we have less money than we do – meaning we intentionally live below our means. But that is because we both work in the same industry and that industry is very volatile. We live with the expectation that one or both of us will lose our jobs at some point. If we worked in a different industry, like teaching or healthcare, we wouldn’t have that assumption that one of us will be laid off. And we save knowing that one of us will likely lose a job at some point. So I guess we would fall under the ‘pessimistic’ description in that article, although we’d both argue that we are being ‘realistic’. I mean, we don’t go to work every day fearing that our jobs will be cut, but we have both lost our jobs/been close to losing our jobs (or technically, I would have if I hadn’t moved to Charlotte, or I would have if I hadn’t changed jobs 2 years ago), so we have personally experienced it and know it can and likely will happen again.

    1. I understand what you mean – if you’re working in a volatile industry (and understand a lot about finances! ;)) than you want to make sure that you’re set up in case of a layoff. That is very smart and make sense…. esp. if you have the means to build up that emergency fund!
