Have you seen the latest from Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives of New Jersey? Word on the street is that she went on a $60,000 spending spree while the contents of her house is currently set to go up for auction and she and her husband are filing bankruptcy on $11 Million worth of debt.
I like Teresa. I love watching the show, her character is over the top and extravagant, her husband is chubby and irritable and her daughters are adorable.
I'm having a really hard time watching the show lately and seeing how much money she's wasting while her house is not under foreclosure. Maybe we don't know the whole story here but shouldn't she be cutting back a little bit and cutting some coupons?
One of the reasons that I'm sitting here writing this post in a 990 sq ft apartment is because we have debt. We could take the easy way out....as we've been encouraged to do by iKeith's family (they are on their 2nd bankruptcy) and file for bankruptcy but we want to honor our commitments.
If that means we live with the bare minimum and live in a small apartment, then that's what we'll do. We incurred this debt and we'll pay it off.
I'd love to see Mrs. Giudice downsizing and living within their means.....
But that doesn't make for good television now does it?
