Festival of Frugality – Passover Edition

by Neal Frankle, CFP ®

Passover will be celebrated all over the world Monday night.

In case you’re not familiar with the story, it’s really all about freedom, faith and responsibility.

The tie-in between those concepts and money is too great to ignore. My experience tells me that money can provide freedom if you have both faith in a positive future and the responsibility to take action and make that future a reality.

You can have all the money in the world, but without faith in the future and/or without being responsible, that money won’t give you any freedom.

So here’s the Festival of Frugality Passover Edition. A gift to you, even if you won’t be celebrating the holiday. Enjoy and celebrate personal financial freedom by using the ideas below and building faith in a bright future for yourself and family.
