A personal finance advisor and bestselling author with an extensive social media following had some advice for his fan this week: Buy cut flowers — and buy them regularly.
In a newsletter sent Monday to about 800,000 people, Ramit Sethi noted he has a friend with a beautiful home, one that’s filled with fresh flowers.
“She has a busy full-time job, so how does she buy and water and care for the roughly 4,126 flowers throughout her apartment?” Sethi wrote. “That’s when she confessed: She has fresh flowers delivered to her house every week. Amazing, beautiful, artisanal flowers from an NYC flower delivery service.”
Noting that the friend lives in a “tiny NYC apartment,” and that she’s spending the equivalent of her cable bill each month on flowers, the financial guru offered his take. “[The flowers] looked great. I loved it.”
“This is a great example of abundance,” he continued. “If you love the way flowers look and they make you happy, you don’t ‘save’ buying flowers for a special occasion. You make sure you have them around you all the time.”
