Money advice from a 6-year-old.

Now that our renovation is winding down, we decided it was time to refinance and somehow pay our way out of this money pit. The process involved dragging the squirts with us to the bank to sign some loan papers, so I informed the kids it was time to get their shoes on so we could go to the bank.

"Why do we need to go to the bank?" Natalie asked. I explained to her, in basic terms, what it meant to "refinance".

"But daddy," she replied, "you could save ten thousand dollars over the lifetime of a loan with Quicken Loans! Why don't you try them out?"

Hmm, too much TV maybe?

She did not actually say that, did she? That is hilarious.

I love it when the kids spout out the exact phrase from the commercials, especially when it isn't really directed at them. I wonder if Quicken loans feels they reached their target audience in your daughter or do their marketing models take into account the secondary benefits of having children explain the product to their parents.

I speak only the truth. She did.
