Money Mantra: Good Enough is Good Enough

My mantra for 2011 -- Good enough is good enough -- also connects to being cheap and cheerful. No more running out for that extra little gift, no more "if one is good, two are better". Know your limits and stick to them. Good enough is good enough. Thoughtful gift giving is better than over-the-top scrambling at the last minute. Get something cheerful and don't worry about the price tag. The love behind the gift is what matters. After all, my daughter's favorite Christmas gift -- her $3.99 Fancy Nancy underpants. Go figure.
