Father’s Day, budget and splurge

This post is brought to you by Best Buy.


I think I may have mentioned here before that my father taught me everything I know about finances and managing money. He’s why I don’t carry debt and only buy things if I have the cash to do so. He’s the type of person who would be uncomfortable if I spent a lot of money on a gift for him, and he might even lecture me the many reasons I should have used a coupon. I would not be surprised if he’s had it written into his will that his tombstone should proudly say nothing but MISER.

So when thinking about ideas for gifts, I had two minds about it: if your father is like mine or your coffers are lean, look to the left. If you want to spring for something a little more luxurious, look to the right. Either way, don’t forget to call him up on Sunday. I was going to make a joke that you better not make it a collect call, but way to show my age there. Kindly look away from the gray in my hair.
