Do You See Yourself in Dick & Jane?
I was watching the movie “Fun With Dick and Jane” last night. It’s stars were Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni.
I saw so many people in the characters they played. The movie also brought up many issues such as job security, keeping up with the Jonses and most importantly, the reason why an emergency fund is a significant part of anyone’s financial plan.
Both characters were out of work and out of money. This is familiar to a lot of people and it’s no fun.
I cannot say this loud enough but have an emergency fund available at all times. This fund should be enough to cover 3 to 6 months of expenses. You don’t want to end up like Dick and Jane and with a little planning you don’t have to.
The movie was funny but in reality, this situation is no laughing matter and is totally avoidable. Think smart. Live smart. And live within your means.
Until Next Time,
