By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor

My husband surprised me with a 50th birthday party this summer. He invited all my friends throughout my many stages of life to come and share pictures of me when they knew-me-back-when. It was really fun to watch the slide show and reminisce about the good times with old friends.

There was one of me on my father’s sailboat that my…

Teens, Tweens and Finances

We forewarned our girls that this Christmas was not going to be a big one.  The Rooster had changed jobs halfway thru the year and my business was slower than last year. Even if that hadn’t been the case, when we saw the 13 YOs “list” it made us do a double take and realized that these kids needed a severe reality check. I’ve made the comment many times that there is NOT an M.D. behind my name. Sorry for the harsh truth kids, but we are not rolling in the dough.

We “gently” advised…

Back to School - BillMyParents Smart Spend Card

Finally a spend-smart credit card for teenagers! When my son was 16 years old, he had an opportunity to go England and train with the coach of the Manchester United soccer team. Chase (my son, not the bank) had a bank account but due to under-18 age status, he was restricted with his ATM debit-only card which he could not use as a credit card. So, we nervously gave him cash to take with him. I bought several travel type garments (socks, money belts) in which he could hide the money. Not a great… Continue

Financial Support For Single Parents – How To Manage The Stress

It may not be obvious; financial stress and emotional stress are closely tied together. In providing financial support for single parents, we must also consider emotional support.  Stress in any one area of your life often leads to stress in other areas so you need to look at the whole picture of your life.  We often focus on only the emotional stress after divorce when in fact, the financial stress can be more damaging to you and your children if not dealt…

There are advantages to working from home, one of which is that I don't have to commute to work every day or sit through rush hour traffic just to get to my office.

When Life Throws You Lemons...Declare War!

I had this writers block this morning, couldn't figure out what was on my mind, but felt the need to type out thoughts....then I'd just hit the delete key and start over, then it had to wait until after an appointment I had, that I hoped would go well. Sometimes life just throws you crap you have to deal with and even when you think of yourself as a well balanced person mentally and emotionally, sometimes it all just catches up with you in the end, leaving you with a box of tissues on the couch… Continue

Teach kids About Money At An Early Age

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

Given…

I've been a Bit Obsessive!

So lately I have been obsessed. I mean really indulging in trying to get my Etsy Store up off the ground and in the process taking every little bit of free time I have to sew. I mean every bit of free time. And in the process I have not been enjoying the process. Hunky Hubs pointed out that he wanted me to do it for fun. And if he's not panicked by our financial situation, why should I be right? (Read… Continue

Cash-Only Diet Ending

Well, we did it! My DH and I stuck to our "financial fast" and this weekend, it will officially come to an end. Good thing too, because I only have a few dollars left and we need groceries :)



I did learn something rather interesting about our family during this credit/debit-card free experiment. We eat a lot of fresh food. My fridge is nearly cleaned out but my pantry is still filled with rice mixes, tinned veg and soups. Before I really got into cooking, we use to eat a lot more… Continue

I Can't Decide -- Do I want Another Child?

Today, I found myself pondering again what I have thought about a few times since Landon was born: do I want another child? Landon was only months old when family members and friends started to ask about the second child, and a lot of my mom friends seem to be having the second child now or are pregnant or working towards it. Not us. Thankfully, I don’t have a huge urge to have another one, although I loved being pregnant and had such a wonderful drug-free birth experience. I say thankfully… Continue
