The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Live Baseball Edition

Several people have written me asking whether I actually go to a lot of live baseball games. I do not.

For starters, I live pretty far from a major league team. The closest park is about three hours away.

There are some minor league teams in the area and we’ve attended a few of their games. For the entertainment, the price is pretty good, but there’s an edge of excitement that’s just not there.

For me, games are a big treat, not a routine. I find other ways to enjoy baseball.

Needs and wants are often confused I think this is the key problem that many people have with overspending. (@ seth’s blog)
