    My brother's wife comes from a super super rich family. When she was at BYU she would spend thousands and thousands a week on clothes and stuff for her freinds. When her father called her to tell her to cool it down she told her Dad "I still have tons and tons of checkbooks still in a box".............

    I'm pretty sure you're a moron in general if you really think blank check = unlimited money.

    Let's be honest. Who's the bigger moron here? The girl, who's a kid mind you, or the adult father who gave her a blank checkbook without obviously setting any limits or having any sort of meaningful discussion with her about financial responsibility?

    I want to start an "opt out of Christmas gift giving/receiving" movement. I don't want gifts and I absolutely hate shopping for them. In my opinion 90% of the gifts I give and at least that many that I receive are total junk I don't want. I see so many of the extended family type gifts that are items that seem to be manufactured and marketed specifically to provide people with some cheap piece of junk they can pass off as a gift. The kind of crap no one would ever buy because they wanted the item, just some cutesy crap that allows them to cross a name or two off their list of obligation. I hate it so much it makes me want to yell. I just want out of the whole thing.

    EDIT: maybe I could modify the movement so that it only precludes store-bought gift giving. So if someone made cookies, or a sweater, or quilt, or beer, or a dog house, or whatever, then that's fine. Just no disposable gifts.

    My MIL bought for the entire family some total junk as seen on TV knife that has a stupid thing hanging off it that acts as a guide so that all your slices are the same thickness. I like to cook, so I have good knives. There's nothing in the world as awesome as having truly good knives to use when cooking, imo. They make all the difference. So anyway, I wouldn't use the piece of junk serrated blade $2 knife in the first place, and in the second place I know how to cut things uniformly and I can cut things much thinner than the thinnest setting of this stupid knife she gave me. I'm not trying to be unappreciative, but at the same time she bought everyone in the family one of these knives because she apparently found a bin full of them at big lots or something and was happy enough to be able to say she was finished with her x-mas shopping. I would have loved to save her the time and money and just tell her to cross my name off the list and don't get me anything. If it went both ways that would have honestly been the best gift I got this x-mas for the amount of stress I wouldn't have to deal with next year.
    We started donating to a charity of the gift receivers choice instead of doing presents. Saves the time looking for presents and does something really nice for someone who really needs it. Especially that time of year. You could tell some people were super hesitant at first but there is no way they were going to say "no, find me a present instead". In the end, they loved the idea and received a card with the donation in their name. I would eventually like to do this for all of the adults in the family and save the presents for the kids.

    You'd be surprised. Especially with how checks aren't used as much as they used to be. And with how little parents talk to their kids about that stuff. But it does seem common sense.

    Some legislators are trying to remove Financial Literacy from the high school core. I think that may be one of the more important classes in high school.

    Agree completely. I think one should have to pass a class before getting a bank account/credit cards, etc..
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
