Just like everyone else, I’ve had my fair share of budgeting mistakes. I’m not going to give you any “textbook” budgeting tips that every other financial advisor gives you. Partially because I’m the furthest thing from a financial advisor that you’ll ever know or speak to. Over the past few years, my husband and I have struggled with saving money. We’ve tried, but one thing after another just keeps knocking us down on our asses. (Mostly my fault, but don’t tell him that. I like to blame it on him sometimes! LOL).
The other day my youngest son was playing a popular game on the Xbox One. I overheard the conversations a few kids and my son was having and he said something that surprised me since we’ve talked about internet safety quite a bit. He mentioned that he was only 12 and that he was home with his mom and that he couldn’t do something because he wasn’t allowed to. It shocked me. So I had him turn the game off and we discussed again how telling people online that you don’t know personally, any type of personal information is unacceptable.
