Here are a bunch of financial phrases I wish were true, along with some that I’m glad are not.
If you ever wondered what I do on my spare time, this is it 🙂
Being worth your weight in gold
At gold hovering around $1,240/oz currently, I’d be worth approximately $3,441,000!
Having a license to print money
That would be cool to see 🙂
Being born with a silver spoon in their mouth
Also fun to see!
A penny for your thoughts
I’d be rich as all I do these days is think and talk (…about nonsense)
Bringing home the bacon
Be honest – how much BETTER would this be than actual money?? 🙂
Being made of money
See smile up top.
Turning on a dime
I wonder if Olympians can do it?
A penny saved is a penny earned
With taxes this is not currently the case, but it’s much easier to say than “a penny saved is a penny and 1/3 earned – depending on your tax bracket” 😉
Rolling in the money
That would be fun!
Money talks, bullshit walks
I’d love to see either of the two happen, haha… particularly the latter.
Cooking the books
Not so tasty, but it would put a stop to the cheating!
The Dollar Store

And while not financial… Liar liar pants on fire
Life would be so much easier if this actually came true – especially with our politicians!
Sayings I’m glad are not true!
As much as I’d love to watch any of the above come true, if it means the following also happening then I take back every last word of it, haha…
Paying through your nose
Costing an arm and a leg
Putting your money where your mouth is
Being stinking rich
Why do you have to bring odor into it?? (Reminds me of one of our
Pouring money down the drain
Having more money than sense
I wouldn’t have much 😉
Making a killing
Money is worthless when you GO TO JAIL FROM IT!!
Having money to burn
See: pouring money down the drain.
Your money or your life
Thankfully when you manage your finances well you never have to choose 😉
If I missed any good ones, you’ll have to let me know 🙂
I will say there’s one phrase that I’ve actually found useful throughout the years, which to my wife’s displeasure I like to recite whenever we leave the house: Spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch!
Haven’t forgotten my wallet at home in a while!
