$ Are you getting value for your cash spent. Depends, doesn't it? Is there value in gambling - perhaps, if you call it entertainment? The value thing is defined by you and it does not always use cash. If you value what you want whether a high-flying career, a religious calling, or a gorgeous timepiece, then these things have value to you.

NEXT for your Reading Pleasure (or Pain) depending upon how you feel about The Ubiquitous Budget. Everyone: individuals, businesses, governments, need a budget in order to plan ahead, have some cash to spare, and savngs for the proverbial rainy day.
