Why It’s Important To Teach Your Teen How To Manage Money

Our children look to us as their first roles models so it is our job as their parents to lead by example. To simply say “don’t do what I do” is not enough, you will have more influence in a positive way if you share how you budget for your family. This will not only teach them to be responsible it will boost their self –esteem and self confidence.…

Coloring is a Great Way to Spend Time With Your Child

Spending time with your children, especially, one on one time is important and makes them feel loved.  I have been trying to make sure that I spend time with my toddler because he is growing up way to fast.  I have a hard time getting down on the floor to play with him (due to my chronic back pain) so I have to be a bit more creative and find activities that work for me.  He loves to “draw”, which is his favorite thing to do these days.  So I scooped him up into my lap and grabbed the…

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

Four-Day School Week!

This is going to be a bit of a short post as I have once again been hit by the crazy stomach bug (my second this year already!) and even sitting here at the computer is taking up valuable energy. However, before I hop into bed I needed to comment on an article that caught my attention through the British Mummy Bloggers forum about one of the…

Political Campaigns of multimillionaire candidates

Does it feel strange to anyone else that there are multimillionaire political candidates spending huge sums of their own money promoting themselves? Doesn't it seem wrong to be able to "buy" a political office? Wouldn't all the money they're spending on their tv ads garner them more attention if they used it to enhance education, homelessness, and the hungry in their respective states? I just don't get it. Why should we have to watch and listen to them over and over again on tv for months,… Continue

Rethinking Traditions to Save the Pocketbook

I'm in sticker shock...over Christmas cards.



It isn't that Christmas cards in and of themselves are necessarily expensive. I was pleased to get forty of them on-sale at my local grocery store, when I found myself stuck at the auto mechanic's shop much longer than anticipated and walked to the grocery store for something to do. I had the cards signed and… Continue

Coupons that don't save a dime.....but really add up!

As the school year is underway and our schedules are HEAPING with more than the year before – how do you make time for what is important? Determining what is important will be different for everyone, but I can almost guarantee that when we stop for a minute and truly think about what is important, it won’t be getting to the grocery store (unless your frig is completely bare!) cleaning the bathroom or watching Dr. Phil. I bet spending time with family… Continue
