Mommy Moments : Financial Tips

Ever since the day I have Mj, I am always writing all the expenses for the day. It just gotten away because of laziness now I am back of listing all of it again because lately I noticed it seems like the money that my husband sent me just slipped away, a day or two and I am out of it. So to make sure with my finances, I am writing all the expenses for the day and this tickler here was my buddy when it comes to that. 
Whenever I grocery shop, I also have my calculator with me so I won’t exceed within my budget. You see, life is hard now, we had money today, by tomorrow our hands will be all empty if we won’t watch out with our expenses. If you think that my daughters can get whatever they want when we go to the mall nope, you are wrong. 
When Mj asked things to buy like a new shirt or new jeans I always told her that we should have a budget for extra expenses. So she should wait for the right time and the right amount, Faith seems like she doesn’t care at all but I am trying to teach her the value of money. She can’t get rides all the time at the mall, or go to wonderland for fun. Even though those are not that expensive, yet she should learn the value of spending.

    Ay tama yan. Ilista talaga ang mga gastusin. Hindi kaya ganun kadali ang pera. I also use a notebook and a calculator. Happy MM 🙂

    I used to do that also but would find it cumbersomeand stop. Then I'd be on it again after a couple of months. So my notebook has about a month of daily entries then three months of no entry and the cycle repeats. LOL!
    Here's how we're teaching our toddlers to value money.

    Listing down your daily expenses is a great way of tracking how much money you're spending and if you're staying within your monthly budget. I hope you can visit my entry, too. Thanks!

    teaching how to value the littlest cent is really important…and it is true that we have to start them early para mas maintindihan nila…although, yes, there are cases when we want to give in to their wants, we need to be firm on our teachings…

    hope you can also take a peek on our tips on saving
