“Don’t go broke trying to look rich”

“Don’t go broke trying to look rich” is a financial saying that has been printed on many images.“That’s why our ppl are always broke: Living beyond our means. We go broke trying to LOOK rich/wealthy” was posted on Twitter by .Goddess.on October 1, 2009.
 
”#music101 DONT GO BROKE TRYING TO LOOK RICH” was posted on Twitter by RAP STAR PROMO on November 7, 2009. “RT @BigKenMrMoney: #bigkensays don’t go broke trying 2 look rich” was posted on Twitter by King Quez on February 13, 2010. Authorship is uncertain, but it’s likely that RAP STAR PROMO at least popularized the saying.
 
American financial author Dave Ramsey made “Act your wage!” his catchphrase in the 2000s. “Don’t go broke/ Trying to look rich/ Act your wage” has been printed on images since at least 2011.
