So visiting those wealthy friends or family members got you feeling poor? Don’t worry, and don’t let that stop you from having a grand time. But–there are some things to remember: if you can afford it, make sure you pay for something, like some activity everyone will enjoy, or a night out to dinner. Just because they’re wealthy doesn’t mean it’s all on them.

And if you can’t afford that, no problem. All you have to do is . . . something! Offer to help them with some household chore, make dinner for everyone one night, walk the dog in the morning, offer to weed the garden. It’s not the amount of dollars you spend that is important, it’s the time and love you contribute that shows you care . . . and exactly how much you’re made of.
