A Week in the Wallet -- Article
« on: March 27, 2018, 04:33:54 PM »
Well,   Found this article... I got through the first list of items purchased, started to add up all the food bought at restaurants and thought "hmm,  It's not that outrageous, obviously if you don't own expensive jewelry you don't need to pay insurance on it, but this is not too over the top shocking."...

Then I realized that I had only read the first DAY of expenses, not the whole week.

I will give them points for adopting a rescue pup. The rest was insane!

I found it most interesting that a cardiologist would spend so much on eating out and booze. I'd have thought someone with such extensive experience on the back end would make more conservative decisions about his own (and his wife's) health.
