Keep Your Money In Your Pocket

I read an intriguing quote today from an article posing the question, "What was the best advice you ever received?" One response was grandfatherly advice: "Keep your money in your pocket".

I pondered this for a while and tried to think of all the possible meanings this advice could render and this is what I came up with.

  • Save your money.
  • Don't flaunt your wealth.
  • Don't lose your money, literally or through bad choices.
  • Protect your assets and valuables.
  • Keep your finances private.
  • Be humble with your wealth.
  • Live within your means.
  • Do it yourself if you are able, there is never anything wrong with a little elbow grease.
What interesting interpretations can you come up with?

Ta ta for money!
