What Halloween Costume is Your Finances Dressing Up As?

October 25, 2011

Have you noticed a theme yet? This week has been in preparation for Halloween and today is no different.

Today we are going to find the perfect Halloween costume for our finances! Read on to see what your money should be dressing up as.

1. Angel

Have you put away an emergency fund of 6 -9 months living expenses? Are you debt free? Do you have various investments for the future that will ensure you a comfortable lifestyle from here on out? If your financial situation is the ideal. If it is working like a dream for you then your finances are perfectly matched with an angel costume.

2. Magician

Does your money do tricks? Do you have some for a few days and then *POOF* it’s gone? Does it ever feel like there is a logical explanation for why your money has disappeared but you can’t quite figure out what it would be? If this describes your finances then I’d suggest a magician’s costume.

3. Clown

Do you laugh every time you look at your budget? Is your checking account so low it is absurd? Do you try to get your money to do tricks for you by borrowing from one category to fund another, yet the trick falls flat? Is your financial future so messed up that it’s silly? If that’s the case then your finances are going to be a clown this year, for sure.

4. Ghost

Have you spent a few years living carelessly? Have you stopped telling your money where to go? Is your lack of financial stability coming back to haunt you? If your situation leaves you feeling uncomfortable and gives you the chills when you think about it, then your finances are most definitely dressing up like a ghost this year.

5. Devil

Are you living in hell? Is your situation so bad that it can’t possibly get any worse? Do you feel like you are at the bottom of a big black hole and there’s no where for you to go? Do you feel like your money is gone so fast that it must be on fire? I would bet your finances are the devil in disguise. I’ll be on the look out for him this Halloween.

6. Monster

Do you ignore your money? Do you pretend it’s not a problem? Do you tiptoe around your spouse or partner so you don’t disturb the status quo? Are you afraid that at any moment things are just going to be destroyed? If so, a monster costume would be perfect for your finances.

7. Princess

Are magical things happening in your life? Do you feel like you have everything you could ever need? Has things been rough in the past but now they are starting to sparkle just like a glass slipper? Good for you, I suggest you find a tiara and strap that baby onto your finances. (FYI, while *I* may be a princess, my finances most definitely are not.)

8. Butterfly

Did your situation start out a bit on the ugly side? Did it grow and grow into something even uglier? Did it inch along until you finally froze everything and started to make changes? Has the ugly side passed and now you see something far more beautiful? Do you smile when you look at your finances? If this is describing your situation, if you were once in a bad place but are now beginning to flourish then the costume for your finances is the butterfly.

I believe my finances would definitely fit into this costume perfectly.

Take a look at your finances.

Are they scaring you?

Are you running to hide from them?

Or does looking at them bring a smile to your face?

    I love these analogies. My finances are definitely in the butterfly category. They have been ugly but now they are turning around and are on their way to a complete transformation. They are on the right path to becoming angel certified!

    This is cute! While my finances aren’t quite angelic yet, they’re getting there. I’m more of a butterfly right now.

      Butterflies are beautiful! I have a tattoo of one that I got shortly after my divorce, it’s very symbolic for me!
