Consider planning your weekly or monthly meals and incorporate grocery shopping into your routine to eliminate the need to pick up a quick but expensive meal for your family.
Having conversations with children at a young age can help parents become more comfortable talking about money as they grow. Starting with small life lessons, such as making grocery shopping decisions, can help children understand the value of money and gain self-confidence to make financial decisions. Teaching through everyday life choices can make it easier for parents to talk about money.
Money confidence occurs when you begin envisioning what you want your future life to be. It also comes with acknowledging your past money mistakes and committing to moving forward. Moving forward requires writing down your goals and creating an actionable plan that can help you begin taking action one step at a time.
