MattH, that's a very interesting and appropriate article...can you post that link over in "Credit In The News" for us, too?  I think most forum members would find it interesting.

 

I disagree with the article's conclusion that teachers and engineers are "frugal", though.  While that may be true, it may also be true that they have less of a need to impress others with displays of wealth in the course of  their careers than a real estate salesperson, for instance, or a stockbroker.

 

If a stockbroker wears a suit that's 20 years old, he's not a stockbroker for long because he doesn't look successful, but if an engineer wears a 20 year old suit...nobody notices!  lol
