Greenlight Card: The Simple and Hassle Free Way to Teach Kids Financial Responsibility

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Becoming financially responsible has been a huge topic in our home recently. With two older kids we want to make sure they are fiscally responsible and we know it’s our job as parents to make sure they are ready for the real world. We have set up budgets and jobs for all of our kids, but it can be difficult to distribute that money to them. Gone are the days of a piggy bank. In this day in age with so much technology it just seems so antiquated.

How I Took My Photos From Okay to Amazing!

Beautiful pictures, we all see them all the time and wish our photos were just as nice. In the age of amazing Instagram pages plastered with beautiful destinations, food and more it can be hard to not feel like your own photos just don’t stand out as well or pop. There are many photo editing programs out there to help in making beautiful photos, but they all come with their own complications. When you need to have courses to learn a program you know it’s going to be more complicated than just uploading a photo and making a few tweaks. These programs can also put a serious dent in your wallet.

CINEMOOD - The Latest Must-Have Tech Toy for the Whole Family!

Whether you travel around the globe (like our family) or head out short trips or “staycations” it can be hard to know what to pack. We have been circling the globe for almost two years now and it can still feel like we just aren’t quite packed right or that we are missing something. Over time I have become a much better packer though and as a mom I am apparently pre-programmed to make sure I have every possible necessity for any possible situation (you just never know when you might need to MacGyver something out of two pencils, a baby wipe and your kids chewed up gum they handed back to you).

As the holidays approach it becomes more apparent how precious family is, and how much time can change a family. I sit at a family dinner looking at my grandparents missing the years I had as a child with them. Hanging out at grandma’s house was one of my favorite activities as a child. I couldn’t wait to see her after school and hang out together eating cookies and milk while watching our favorite shows. She made me feel special and I am so grateful for those years we spent together. Now that I am an adult with my own children, life gets away from me and I don’t spend as much time as I would like at “grandma’s house” anymore.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
