Do you want to work from home? I’ve been working from home, in one way or another, for close to 12 years now and I’m so glad that I’ve had the ability to stay with my kids and keep a flexible schedule so I’m there when they need me.
Not sure how to talk to your kids about money? It’s an important topic but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, especially since talking to kids about money can be surprisingly awkward.
As parents, we all know there are going to be some tough conversations we are going to have to have with our kids. The birds and the bees come to mind. I can recall a very awkward conversation how I was going to nurse my twins with my, then, toddler.
Do you ever think of money as being one of those hard conversations?
It turns out, money can be really hard to talk about with our kids and a good portion of us just stay silent, sending our kids off into the world with no clue how to manage their money or deal with financial bumps along the way.
Beth Kobliner is out to change that with her new book, Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You’re Not).
This book is a must-read for all parents, with age-appropriate advice for kids of all ages.
As a work at home mom, tax season always gets a bit interesting. We’ve always been more DIY’ers so we’ve gotten in the habit of doing our own taxes every year.
In the beginning, our taxes were a fairly simple task. As we added a few home businesses and some contract work to the mix, things got interesting.
We learned what to do (and not to do) along the way and now we are fairly confident at filing our own taxes, even with a full time work at home income to deal with.
Do you want to save money on groceries but have no time to cut coupons? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with some great ways to save money and help lower your monthly grocery budget.
If you are looking to save money, your grocery budget is usually the first place I recommend you start. Why? There’s usually a lot of waste in your grocery budget.
Most of your bills are probably fairly set but the grocery budget has a lot of wiggle room. Even if you think you are already shopping fairly frugally, there’s probably still some room to save some extra money.
If you are looking to earn some extra cash, chances are you can do it without even leaving home. Most of us have far too much stuff. With a little bit of work, you can easily turn that extra stuff into some extra income. I routinely go through and sell items I don’t need anymore. There’s always more to declutter. I could probably still sell a lot more than I already do and never even miss it. I love that feeling of clearing out the clutter and it is a great way to help my budget at the same time. I once made $700 in a weekend simply by decluttering my home so selling your stuff can definitely be profitable.
