Stop dreaming of ball gowns and start dreaming of power suits

Sometimes I ask my friends what they wanted to be when they grew up. The answers are always beautiful, and I think that if we all followed our dreams, the world would be filled with more fire fighters, ballerinas and a variety of amazing circus acts (but thankfully, no clowns).…

Why is it wrong to pay children for doing houseworks?



A few days ago I met one of mine acquaintance on the street. We started talking about our kids and he said to me: ‘We decided to give our daughter a pocket money in exchange for cleaning her room every day. It's not a significant amount, just something to…

As if the thought of your teen driving wasn't scary enough

I was in my late teens when I started driving.

And I have never thought about this before now, but I saved my mother a large amount of money by not getting my license sooner. I didn't know this, but the average married couple's car insurance rate…

Making Money While Breastfeeding

In one 24 hour period, I spend approximately 4 of those hours breastfeeding or pumping. That is 28 hours a week- practically a part time job! One day, while using my computer to watch So You Think You Can Dance as I fed my son, I decided to find something better to do with my hours than watch every reality TV show possible. 

I started researching sites that would allow me to make money during those 28 hours a…

The going rate for the tooth fairy

I made the mistake of Googling the phrase "tooth fairy rates" the other day and I was frightened. Depending on the area of the country, some children are receiving anywhere from $5 - $13 per tooth.…

The many tests of marriage

Sometimes, younger unmarried women will ask me for relationship advice. I have been married to the love of my life for almost seven years, and we were together for 12 years before we got married. And so I am very honest when I talk about the tests of love.…

You give a little, you get a lot

Every Sunday morning, I give my son his allowance. He does a little song and dance he made up and races to his room to put the money into his three jars. So far, he's completely understood the purpose of his spend and save jars, but we haven't done much with his give jar. He knows that he has that jar in order to give back to the world, but we were…

Women breadwinners don't have time to cheat

My husband and I have always had a dual-income household. We are fortunate to both have jobs that we truly enjoy. There have been a few times in the past where one of us was out of work and financially dependent on the other person, which naturally lead to stress in our relationship. But we got through it (for better or worse, right?) and moved ahead. At no point during those times did one of us consider cheating on the…

You're a mom forever

On Sunday morning, my son greeted me by saying, "Good morning! I get my allowance today, right?" After his morning routine, I handed him his cash for the week and he went to distribute it into his three jars. He then starting telling me what he was going to use his spend money on (a Batman action figure of some kind) and what he was going to use his save money on (a…

Money talks

At about this time last year, I wanted to introduce my son to money. But it was too early for him, as evidenced by the fact he would still mix the play money in his cash register with the real thing. So, we took a step back and waited.…

When money matters

Like most parents, I try to do activities with my son that do not cost lots of money. I'll get him to go on a bike ride with me instead of taking him to the bouncy house. He'll play guitar with his Daddy at home, rather than go to a music instructor. We play a lot of board games.…

My ALDI Experience

*Not a sponsored post*
A new ALDI store opened about 15 minutes from us. I was so excited to see that there is finally one I could go to without a long drive. There are plenty in the city but not so many in the outer suburbs where we live. I've been to ALDI…

5 things I learned this Halloween.

1. Picking a costume is so much easier when you have kids.

         I used to have so much trouble choosing my costumes, but you know who has no trouble at all choosing my costumes? MY SON.  He is very opinionated when it comes to what I wear, Halloween or not.

 Like a lot of 6 year old boys this year, my son chose to be a ninja turtle. Micheal Angelo, to be exact.  Of course, he wanted me to be April O'Neil, and since I'm pregnant, I had to get a little… Continue
