As a kid, I never really thought much about money. That was easy because there wasn’t much to think about. Mom paid the few bills and “food was adequate.” Reflecting as an adult, I was impressed by my little brother’s small and steady incremental saving habit as a kid. He grew up to be our in-house ‘Family Savings & Loan” company, for me, my siblings AND my mom. Eventually, I adopted his prudent ways with money by allowing my credit union to deduct from my monthly check various needs like Christmas savings, car loan (used car), etc. That way “I” would not have to ‘think’ about it. However, two things I DID think about were going to the movies and a frozen yogurt afterward. Well, with one less movie and frozen yogurt treat per month, my $15 automatic deduction supports my MKP membership. AND, MKP is an organization of men, with love and joy, I DO think about!
