Our ultimate goal in writing What Every Child Needs To Know About The Economy
was to help our daughters understand why people have (or don’t have) jobs.
It also explains why they can’t necessarily have every toy or treat they ask for.
Ultimately, it’s about why they shouldn’t even want some of the things that they say they want.
But before we could address topics like markets and scarcity, we needed to talk about money.
When I fixed some drafty outlets in the house to save on energy,
I envisioned myself being one of those game show contestants where you go inside a giant-sized glass capsule.
The ones where money blows all around and whatever you could realistically grab in the duration of time allotted was yours.
I know that’s a little far-fetched but it didn’t quite happen that way and here’s how to fix it.
In order to spend wisely during the holidays, you have to do your wallet proud.
Avoid a debt hangover that you’ll only regret later.
It may sound dramatic.
I understand, but . . .
It’s only been a day since doing this and a wad of cash hasn’t fallen from the sky and plopped itself down in the middle of my living room.
But if you do make a bunch of tweaks like this, it can add up to big savings.
If you’re raring to go when it comes to saving money on utilities, I implemented a useful tip I found on Pinterest.
You are the best money saving tool that you have.
And if you don’t utilize this precious resource the way that you should, you’re most likely losing money.
A little over the top, but . . .
You’re holding yourself back from that dream life you could have or just preserving what you have right now.
It may seem so far away.
I get it, but . . .
If you really want to save, prioritize your spending or accomplish any goal, you need to block out the haters.
The question remains . . .
How do I do that?
Well, one person took to the internet to show you a sure-fire way to get it done.
Before we brought our baby home, we had everything set up.
I can’t remember how many times people asked if we were ready.
The room was all set with freshly painted walls and a new crib that was up to the latest safety standards with a baby monitor close by.
We had a changing table with secure sides and a stack of pampers ready to be worn.
We even had the car seat installed weeks ahead after following all of the proper guidelines provided in the manual.
