Raising a family of 6 kids is expensive. It is no surprise that teenage boys eat a ton, extra curricular activities always seem to cost more than you expect, and back-to-school expenses seem to increase drastically each year.
Now more than ever, it is critical to make every dollar count which is why I was excited to find CreditCards.com, a website designed to help families like mine smartly use their credit cards.
With kids back in school and fall schedules in full swing, one of the most frequent things I hear these days is, “Mom, I need some money for . . .”
I never have cash on me so last minute requests for money usually involve scavenging in my junk drawer or borrowing cash from my other kids. Scrambling for spare change around the house really adds to the feeling of chaos. Fortunately, I just discovered an easy solution. Greenlight is a debit card for kids that lets you add money instantly to their card directly from the app, manage how your kids spend the money on their card, and set allowance money to automatically transfer to their Greenlight card each week. This is brilliant!
