You Need to Lose Weight Weight is something that nearly every woman is made to think about at some point.

That’s great for them, but what if it’s not for you? What if you just want to be… you?

I have a six-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy; rarely is there a shopping trip with them where one of us doesn’t leave in tears. A way to make shopping trips with the kids less painful while also teaching them important money management skills. I’m not saying that our shopping trips aren’t still fairly painful (I’m only human), but at least now I feel like there is some good that is coming out of these torture trips. Below are my tips for teaching your kids about money before, during and after the store. 1 -  Allowance:  In order for your child to learn how to budget, they need to have one important thing…money!
