I’ve often heard that the biggest investment you will ever make is purchasing a home!!
Boy was who ever told me that wrong!! HANDS DOWN my biggest investment is most definitely my KIDS!!
In 2011 it was estimated that it costs $295,000 to raise a child to age 17, not including college!!
It’s time to stand up and take charge of your biggest investment!!
Help teach your children financial responsibility from a young age!
Here are some ways you can do this:
1. Make your kids aware~share how much it costs to fill your tank for example. Maybe they’ll think twice before asking you to run them to their friend’s house across town!
2. Make a conscious effort to share on big ticket financial items. Show them how comparison shopping pays off.
3. Help your kids enjoy work and earning money. Set goals and enlist an online chore chart to help your children choose rewards and watch as they work towards their goal!!
4. Don’t cultivate entitlement, tie work to reward. Hold them to a high standard when helping around the house. It will help instill good work ethic. You may hear some complaining along the way but it will be worth it in the long run.
5. Consistency counts!! Repetition is the key to learning!! Start them early with chores around the house that will help them learn how to be financially smart.
Raising your kids has an enormous price tag, but it’s worth every dime, especially when you start to see a return on your investment.
I constantly get asked “What is a Bricks coupon?”
Maybe you already know, or perhaps you don’t know but just never asked.
A “Bricks coupon” is one that starts with the word “bricks” in the web address. These coupons are usually printable, and can also be requested by mail.
In order to request the coupon by mail you need to do the following. Click the coupon link to go to the page you would normally print from. Look in the bottom lower right hand corner of the page for the HELP button. Click this, and it will bring up another page for you to enter your mailing info. Fill this out, and you coupon will arrive via US Mail in a few days.
With Bricks coupons, you can print the coupon, hit the back button twice and PRINT TWO.
YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING WITH THE HELP LINK! Fill it out, hit the back button twice and request two.
This is a great feature when you are running low on ink, out of ink, or without a printer.

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “The Luck of the Irish” ~ WHY are the Irish so lucky?
Many people, including my 83 year old mother, insist that planting a potato on St. Patrick’s Day will bring you Good Luck in the coming year!!
I try to remember to do this every St. Patrick’s Day ~ I can use all the GOOD LUCK I can get!!
Have YOU ever planted a potato on St. Patrick’s Day? I am not sure where this tradition started but I do know that St. Patrick’s Day is a good time to start your garden plants!
Do you have a favorite St. Patti’s Day tradition? What is it??
I just saw on the 11:00 news that there will no longer be Saturday mail delivery beginning Saturday, August 1st.
Package delivery WILL continue to occur on Saturdays. This is in an effort to save money (a reported TWO BILLION DOLLARS).
I think it’s both a good and bad idea, and that it will take some getting used to not getting mail on Saturdays.
What do YOU think about no mail on Saturdays beginning August 1st?
I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania. Growing up I remember my mom using coupons but never really understood why. I knew they helped her save money but never understood the magnitude of how much you actually could save with coupons!!
Fast forward 20+ years and you will find me a wife and mother REGULARLY using coupons and saving a bundle in the process!! I can save 70% on my weekly grocery bill with minimal effort!!
Although I don’t extreme coupon or stockpile a ton, I do stock up on things we regularly use. I notice “sale cycles” and plan accordingly. I like it when I run out of something and don’t have to go any further than my shelves in the basement to replenish my supply!! There are many ways to organize coupons and the same method does not work for everyone – I have tried many different systems and prefer the binder method!!
I now have children of my own. My girls are 16 and 20, and my oldest is away at college. I can’t help but smile every time she comes home and goes through my coupon binder or texts me and tells me how much she just saved grocery shopping. I LOVE that at 20 years old she realizes that you can save a lot of money using coupons!!
The Sunday paper is obviously one place to find coupons but did you know you can also sign up to get coupons by mail and write to companies and receive coupons in return.
I scour the circulars and internet and combine my coupons with sales to maximize my savings!!
I ALWAYS use coupon codes when I shop on line and save a lot of money by doing this, too, and now I find my girls saying “I want to order this online. Do you have a coupon code?”
I LOVE that my girls are learning ways to save their hard-earned money at an early age.
What are YOUR favorite ways to save money??

Some see 3D TV as a wonderful new experience and the TV of the future while others see it as a temporary fad that will be long gone in just a few short years. At the end of the day, 3D viewing as a concept is only a baby, an emerging technology that hasn’t had time for all the kinks to be ironed out yet.
So, will it grow and develop into something every home owner simply has to have, or is it just a flash in the pan that nobody will even remember in ten years time?
At present, the main drawback to 3D TV is the need to wear special glasses to view it. Even advocates of 3D technology would prefer a version that didn’t require these, but as things stand it is simply not possible.
An LED TV from appliancesdirect.co.uk may not offer the full immersion experience of a 3D TV, but on the plus side you don’t have to look stupid while you watch it. Not only are the glasses usually quite unattractive, but the inconvenience of having to find them and wear them whenever you want to watch TV often far outweighs the visual benefits.
Another problem with 3D television today is that, although made for 3D movies can be spectacular, the effect is often less impressive when film-makers have tried to add 3D images after production.
In a catch-22 type situation, until 3D TVs are more popular then most films and programmes will still be made in 2D, but until there are more high-quality 3D movies and programmes in existence then people will not want to bother with paying for a 3D television.
A 3D TV at Appliances Direct UK or anywhere else is pricier than a regular television as they quite simply cost more to make.
But with an increase in cost comes an increase in viewing experience.
