Hello. I have been browsing the frugal living/money saving videos on yoootooob, thinking I might pick up a few tips here and there. Everyone has their own way of budgeting their money, I wondered if I had missed something which would benefit my own budgeting. After trawling through a dozen or more, and not learning anything new, I came across this one. Low income living and how to do it.
After watching for a few minutes I couldn't believe what I was hearing, 'What the heck', and 'Oh my God', came to mind. Surely this is a wind up, but sadly I think it isn't.
Who are we to criticize how anyone else is managing their money? It's a personal thing, I will spend mine on what is important to me, and you will do the same. If you view this on yoootooob you will see that the comments are split between those who think he has got it massively wrong, and those who think he is doing ok. I know which side of the fence I sit on, but because of political correctness no one is allowed to say how unfit and overweight he is because of all the rubbish food he is eating.
He seems oblivious to the fact that he is killing himself, and is quite happy to talk about his best frugal living tip of buying all the wrong foods in bulk. I say wrong foods, but they are obviously not wrong to him. He seems a nice guy, but as this was posted in 2011, I wonder if he is still alive.
I always say to people, this is how I do it, you do what you want. I don't preach that my way is best, because it might not suit everyone. No one has the right to tell anyone what they should be spending their money on. But hey, in this instance, what I will say is please think twice about following his advice.
Please comment with your thoughts. Thank you for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
