<The point is that it makes sense to look at all the options and choose the best financial option for your particular case. And sometimes, that can be taking out a loan.>

2gifts, you are one of the smartest people and one of the best planners on TMF. This board is visited by some who are far less prudent and have gotten into serious trouble with debt.

Anyone who takes the advice of 2gifts that taking out a loan can sometimes be the best financial option should honestly calculate whether this is the best option or whether they are fooling themselves to take on more debt to indulge in a luxury they want but can't really afford.
