Anne Frank’s Sister, Margot

Published May 16, 2014 by ladyserenity92

Anne Frank’s sister, Margot has always told me….

“Put your money where your mouth is.”

And she’s right about that.

Margot often gave her little sister advice about money.

That you should talk as if you’re wealthy; not like you came from the poorhouse.

Margot Frank didn’t like her talking like she was poor.

Margot’s chance to teach her sister a lesson came when she wanted to see a movie.

Anne wanted to go as well.

Margot had money saved up.

When Anne asked her Margot for some money to see the movie,

Margot told her,”no.”

Anne never forgot about the lesson about ‘putting her money where her mouth was.’

Speak of prosperity and you will receive all the riches in the world.

Speak of failure and you will lose your place in line.

Norman Vincent Peale

Saturday at the movies! (And for free!)

Published July 11, 2010 by ladyserenity92

On Saturday, I decided to go to the movies at the local AMC movie theater. The first thing I brought with me was a free movie pass in part of  My Cokerewards.com. I chose the movie that I wanted to see was the coming of age sleeper remake The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith and a nearly unrecognizable Jackie Chan. At the ticket booth, I passed the casherie my movie pass; along with my Movie Watcher savings card.

To my surprise, I was given not only my ‘free’ movie ticket, I was also awarded a free small bag of popcorn. Not only I got a free bag of popcorn, I was given a free large soda thanks to Cokerewards.com.

And the most wonderful thing about it…. I didn’t have to pay for anything! It was all free and legal!

Over the years, I’ve gotten free stuff and items that were half-price. You guys might think that this is just a ‘joke’. It’s not! In the era of the recession and many people(including Scorge McDuck) are pinching pennies just to survive another day.

Since we are in the days of uncertainty, I decided to place a new category “The language of money”. This Category gives advice about saving money, making wise choices in spending; all of tips and advises are from people real, fictitious; famous and infamous. They all had some good(and) bad advice about what to do with money.

I too have some advices about saving ‘pennies’ for a rainy day! And don’t worry, I’ll even share some of my ‘money’ tips to keep your piggy banks full!

Here’s to three years!

Stay Tuned!
