Did Someone Say There Is A Recession?

Ace's New 2009 Maserati

In all the news of impending financial doom and gloom with people losing their jobs left and right it’s surprising to hear of people spending money like there is no problem.  Our friend over at AcesBlog.com must be rolling in it because he just bought a Maserati.  I mean what a cool car.  How he does it I don’t know, but I for one would like to find out.  By the way if you want a chance to win an I-Phone and $500 from AcesBlog, please, sign up for his blog feed.  (At first I thought it was too good to be true, but if he can afford a Maserati, he’s probably not joking about this prize.)

Here I am, a lower-middle class mom, fretting over needing to buy a new car seat and stroller (our first travel system was damaged in a car accident and is finally falling apart) for my new baby and there are people out there still able to afford luxury vehicles for themselves.  Must be nice.

I’d be elated if I could buy a complete travel system with everything matchy, matchy and a new fully loaded Volkswagen Routan minivan (in black)  to cart around my two sweeties and friends.  I’d be content if I could get a double stroller that will accommodate my three year old and the baby with a car seat even if I can’t get a new car – that can get very expensive though, too.

Enjoy riding out the recession in your Maserati, Ace :).

Like my husband and I were discussing last night anyone out there that has any extra money for investment purposes is going to come out of this downturn much better than they did going in.

Unfortunately, the majority of people live from paycheck to paycheck and investing in the stock deals that are presenting themselves is the last thing they can think to spend their money on.

I keep thinking about going over to ShareBuilder and funding an account.  I’ve only got a few pennies to rub together right now, but their investment strategies are such that you can get started with very little.

Once my bux.to payment clears I think I’ll go to ShareBuilder and see what I can do for $20.  It’s better than nothing – and that’s not enough to buy even a cheap car seat anyway so I might as well try to put it to work.
