I thought this was an excellent set of recipes to share. I don’t have a juicer or a dehydrator yet, but I have wanted one of each for awhile to prepare those healthy things I want my children (and myself) to enjoy more easily. I have looked at reviews and could not decide which ones I wanted.
I have had the pleasure of reading Inside the Spaghetti Bowl and I will share my thoughts with you on this heartwarming book with you tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to share this post that Frank Zaccari wrote for us over here at Not Everyone’s Mama!
For the record, I am not good with money. I am not good at making budgets, balancing anything, saving, etc. I’m good at being frugal and I’m good at spending. Do those two things go together? Probably not. Because of this, I’ve been trying to teach my kids how to be good with money. That just because your money is burning a hole in your pocket, that doesn’t mean you have to spend it. That it’s important to put money in your savings account. Each of our children have savings account and none of them are happy about putting their money in it. I received this article and thought since I struggle with teaching my children this, that others might too. We need all the tips we can to teach this upcoming generation about being more like our grandparents’ generation. How to save for the future, how to have money stashed away for emergencies, such as the country is in right now (loss of jobs, the economy tanked, etc).
