My mother grow up teaching me about being frugal, saving money and eventually how to live the good life without spending loads of cash. She used to use coupons, make her own meals, shop thrifty and worked hard to have us grow up feeling as though we weren’t missing things in life. Even though my step father was working a naval men’s salary and was constantly overseas.. we lived a good life.
Now as a adult, I’ve learned that I have a true love for money and finance.. She taught me to love it and embrace the idea of saving money. She might not realize it.. but she has a big influence on why I love to talk about budgeting, being wise and always paying yourself first. I don’t know if ya’ll see it or not.. but I have a real love for finance. 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there. Enjoy your kiddos and remember that they will remember what you’ve done for them. <3
