Happy Mother’s Day & Money Tips from Mom


To all of the moms out there, I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day! My son and husband went out shopping yesterday to buy me gifts and it was all about practicality. I received a package of pens and a small pillow to sit with while working on the computer. Both were my son’s ideas (although I have a sneaky feeling that if dad wasn’t there I would have ended up with a LEGO set or something LOL). If the rain holds out, we may end up visiting the lake for a picnic to round out the day. We’ll see.

While searching for a Mother’s Day quote, I stumbed across an article at MSN about money tips from your mom. While the tips are not specifically finance-related, they are the things moms often say that can be applied to your financial life.

“Have a place for everything, and everything in its place.” “You can do anything if you set your mind to it.” “Practice, practice, practice.”

There are 10 tips in all: 10 Money Tips from Mom.

Happy Mother’s Day!!

    I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful blog. Your posts have been a tremendous source of financial support and personal encouragement. I am proud to say I recently paid off my credit cards. (Now of course the task is to KEEP them paid off.) Your persistance has bouyed me to maintain my financial commitments. I cannot thank you enough.

    Tricia, you and I were mentioned in a Spanish newspaper! Isn’t that funny? Take a look at this post–it shows you how to view a translated version of the article.
