#ShareAwesome Helps Families Share Digital Content Safely #sponsored

Raising children in this digital age can be a daunting task if not handled properly. We have two daughters, ages 15 and 11 who are tech savvy, own smart phones and tablets and are allowed limited online time to their favorite social sites just like their peers. However, before any of these privileges were granted, ground rules were established.

My husband and I talked privately before we started a conversation with our daughters so that we were on the same page. The last thing we wanted to do was scare our kids about being online or worse, come off old and preachy! 

Making safe choices, both on and offline are important topics in our home, so joining the digital advocacy campaign sponsored by National PTA and LifeLock was an easy choice for us. 



#ShareAwesome #digital safety campaign


The National PTA has partnered with LifeLock to share useful ways for families to have open, ongoing and evolving conversations about safe, positive decisions using digital tools.

The #ShareAwesome campaign seeks to build an understanding among parents and students that no matter the device, the app or the networking site- making smart choices on what we share is just plain smart and asking first before sharing is awesome!

5 Surprising Benefits to Getting a Head Start on Holiday Shopping #ChosenByKids

5 Surprising Benefits to Getting a Head Start on Holiday Shopping #ChosenByKids
Even though fall has just begun, now is the time when I begin to get excited about and prep for the holidays.  

Why?  Because smart planning not only helps my bottom budget line but also offers me plenty of wonderful residual benefits. It's well worth the little bit of extra effort to start early! 

Thanks to Walmart though Sverve for sponsoring this post and giving me the incentive to share my ideas and thoughts on why getting a head start on holiday shopping will help you to have the best holiday season!  

The first step I always begin with is to make a commitment to spend less and to budget for holiday gifts. Spending less during the holidays is obviously beneficial to your financial well-being. 

Making the commitment to spend less this Christmas is easy. Sticking to that commitment is the hard part. In fact, everyone has probably considered the idea on more than one occasion but fallen short of the goal. 

No matter how good your intentions, once the season gets in full swing a frenzied momentum can take over. Before you know it, you have spent well over your planned Spartan budget, are nowhere near finished and are forced to postpone your frugal goals for another year. 

There are some really simple tricks to help keep your holiday spending on track including:
