Financial follies of 'Downton Abbey'

5 money lessons

The opulence of Downton Abbey is truly awe-inspiring. The Crawleys appear to have it all: a beautiful estate, a staff of servants to take care of them and fine clothes, food and drink aplenty.

But this family has faced some serious financial issues, and they’re dang lucky to have anything at all.

Really, they have no one to blame but themselves.

The Crawleys spend money like it’s their job. And the family has made some pretty poor decisions when it comes to managing an estate like Downton Abbey.

Even if you weren’t born with a silver spoon in your mouth, you can learn — mostly what not to do — from this aristocratic family.
