The Money Talk: Teach Your Children the Art of Frugality

  (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy) 

The sooner we start to teach our children about money, the better it will be for their future wallets. You’d want them to grow up to be money savvy little ninjas, yet every day seems to be somewhat of a struggle to make ends meet - and being that shiny example of healthy finances is turning into an impossible dream. Manyparents before us have managed to raise their children to live a frugal and debt free life, so why shouldn’t we be able to do the same?

This post is here to help you with building their life skills as soon as possible - in a fun and educational way even, so you can put your feet up for a bit.

Talking to them about money

A lot of parents wait far too long with including their children in the finances of their household. They celebrate them for putting a few coins in the piggy bank from time to time but forget about all the other situations that could have been brilliant learning experiences as well. Even a simple trip to the supermarket can teach them a thing or two about savvy shopping, the value of money, and how easy it is to find little ways to save during the week.

Bring them with to the supermarket and remember to boost their wits a bit by pointing out the difference in prices, how much a coupon could save you, and ask your little ones to find the most cost-effective alternative when you’re by the racks. It’s not enough to simply bring them with and let them be a nuisance to other shoppers; you need to turn it into a learning experience, or your children will get very little out of the trip except for keeping you company.

When you get your monthly energy bill, treat your excited children to an energy-tour around the house. They might not be that excited about it, though, but you can always hope. Point out the figures on the bill and show them ways of cutting costs around the house. They probably know already that they should turn off the lights when leaving a room, but it makes a lot more sense when they get to see the actual results of it on your energy bill.

Setting an example

Your child looks at you, copies your behavior, and believes this is the way to go. We did the same with our parents when we were little, and it’s eye opening to think about what you wish your mother taught you differently. We tend to realize areas of improvement as we grow up and try to turn it around after some time. Do your children a favor and realize the mistakes in yourself already now; they’ll benefit a lot more from it than if they were to educate themselves as teenagers.

If you’re struggling and would like nothing more than financial freedom from debt mountain, you should seek professional help as soon as possible. It will help you sleep a bit better, and make it possible to get back on track even earlier than you thought. Plus, you’re setting a brilliant example for your children by telling them that everyone needs a bit of help sometimes, and the only way you can live a happy and successful life is to take charge.  

The allowances

The first way we tend to teach our children about money is through allowances. Which is a good idea, by the way, and an excellent way of introducing them to the art of budgeting. You should consider what kind of system you’d like, though, as one way may work better for some children than others. Some parents tie the allowances to the completion of certain chores: making their room tidy, taking out the trash, or walking the dog.

This may work very well for some families, while others end up teaching their clever little children the wrong kind of lesson. Look at it this way; if you don’t do your job, you’d most likely struggle with putting food on the table as you used to. But if they don’t complete their chore - won’t they still come home to a warm bed, loving parents and a hot meal every evening? Sure, they will, and some children learn early on that by not completing their chore, all they have to give up on is a few dollars per week - which is a fair deal to them.

Consider what kind of system works best for you - and if you suspect that they might fool you like this, keep giving them allowances for the sake of budgeting. They should still be expected to do their chores, like everyone else in the household, they just won’t get paid for it.

It’s hard being a parent, and especially when it comes to teaching our children lessons we should have learned ourselves a long time ago. Make money talk a part of your weekly routine, and they will grow up to master it in ways you never thought possible.

4 Legitimate Ways To Beat The Taxman

                                           (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy) 

(photo credit)

When people want to save money around the house, the obvious culprits are energy and the grocery bill. After all, a typical household spends over one hundred dollars a month on electricity alone. Still, there are other expenses that as much if not more and they are cuttable. What are these costs come the cries? Well, the main one is a tax return because in 2016 the typical amount for American families was over $9,000.

Anyone in their right mind would want to save on this sum, and it is possible with the right tricks and tips. What’s more, there is no reason to get into trouble with the law in the process.

Let’s take a look at how to beat the taxman and maintain a shred of honesty.

Invest In A Pension Fund

Usually, a person does not think about the future until it is too late. In this case, forgetting about your future will cost a small fortune. The reason is simple: tax exemptions for pension funds. The government wants people to become self-sufficient, which isn’t surprising considering the amount they pay each year. As a result, it is perfectly legal to store the money away now and avoid tax deductions until further notice. Although the taxman will catch up with you in the end, the amount they take will be smaller.

Set Up A Trust

The way the world of finance works is that a person spends a lifetime formulating wealth to give it all away. However, who you give it away to is important because no one wants to see their family go poor. With this in mind, you can use a trust to invest in the future of your loved ones and save on tax contributions at the same time. Normally, there is a threshold the government will allow a person to put into a trust that isn’t liable for inheritance tax. For grandparents, the amount is higher, so the savings are bigger if you have grandkids.

Hire A Professional

Most people can secure themselves a good deal by going it alone, yet the savings are minimal. The obvious reason is a lack of experience. Just because you read a blog post doesn’t make you an expert – to become an expert, you need years of training and experience. The good news is that financial services around the country have these qualities in abundance and are willing to use them to your advantage. Of course, the initial cost is high, but the amount a family saves in the long-term is much greater.

Claim Expenses

Last but not least, there are expenses. In layman’s terms, these are charges the taxman is willing to forego for a number of reasons. For example, a cost might be work-related, which means it is omitted from the return. Obviously, the more you can claim, the less you will pay, which is why looking into them is a savvy move. Did you know that most people didn’t know work clothes are deductible? It is little things like that which are worth considering.

When it comes to tax, every little saving helps.

I am always on the hunt for toys that are not only affordable, but that are also well-made. I was recently given the opportunity to test out the Cat Machine Team™ and Barbie Cruisin’ Corvette R/C™ – from Toy State, a leader in the manufacture of radio controlled vehicles and construction toys for kids of all ages. The toys, which have made their way into Toys R Us, are perfect for keeping kids busy during the summer season! These toys also have great reviews and provide imagination in children which is another plus in my book!

I love toys that offer creative play and the Cat Machine Team definitely fits the bill! I would highly recommend this set to anyone out there. Your kiddos will love it! 

Barbie Cruisin’ Corvette

My friend Heather's little girl Evyn absolutely adored the Barbie™ Cruisin’ Corvette R/C! How cute is she holding this car with the remote control? Even her older brothers want to get in on the action! I love how vibrant the Barbie™ Cruisin’ Corvette R/C is and how easy it is to maneuver.
