Putting Money In The Pot...But Not Literally

  (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

Flickr Image

We all want to save money. When you have a family, it can sometimes seem as though there isn’t enough of it go round. So, it’s no wonder we want to make the most of what we get. We go to extremes to save. From selling unwanted items, to scouring the internet for vouchers and coupons. But, the odd saving won’t do any good when disaster strikes. And, in one form of another, it hits us all sometimes. Unexpected costs can be enough to send you overboard when your boat is already rocking.

The best way to avoid unexpected costs used to be keeping a rainy day fund under your mattress. For obvious reasons, that’s no longer advisable. Savings accounts have long since trumped that idea. They’re safer, and offer interest! Putting money into savings will leave you shorter each month, but it’s a commitment worth making. Work out how much you can afford to save. Be realistic; you don’t need to push yourself. You can put in as much or little as you want. Even so, having a set monthly amount is the best way to ensure you keep up with payments. Even $10 a month will add up.

Pixabay Image

That said, it’s possible that savings accounts are going the same way as money under the mattress. No matter how much you save, one blow stands to empty your account. That’s why it makes more sense to familiarize yourself with payment plans. These aren’t practical for covering every eventuality. It may still help to have a savings pot behind you. But, for a lot of things, a payment plan is your best bet. Start on the right footing by insuring your home and belongings. That way, you’ll be able to claim back should anything break or get stolen. Leak in your home? No problem. You’ll be able to turn to your insurance company without worry.

Flickr Image

It’s also worth covering yourself against illness and injury. The majority of us know the importance of health insurance to avoid medical bills. But, have you considered researching the best dental insurance plans? If not, it’s time to start looking. A toothache is bad enough, let alone when you have to worry about the cost, too! The problem is even worse when you can’t afford the treatment you need. You either have to scrape together money you don’t have or suffer the pain.

Of course, paying money out in this way has its problems. You’ll need to know what money is going out, when and where from. Else, you’re at risk of running yourself into debt. Keep on top of things by writing payment dates in your diary. You could even set up an account for the purpose. Done right, though, plans like these could be lifesavers. They’ll save you having to worry when something happens. They also stand to give you a return. You only have to pay in a small amount each month, but you could see a large payout because of it!

Save Green by Going Green

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

Image source

A lot of people think that going green will be too much effort and cost them too much money, so they simply do not bother, which is a real shame because going green can actually save you some precious green and make your bank balance healthier than ever before! Don’t believe me? Here are several ways you can save green by going green:

Solar Panels

Although you will need to spend some money to have solar panels installed on your property, you should treat it as a worthwhile investment because, depending on where you live, you could generate most of your electricity needs with them, which means that your energy bills will be slashed to near oblivion. Even when you factor in things like solar maintenance costs, you will probably find that, over their lifetime, you will save much more than you spend by installing solar panels.

Video Conferencing

Instead of paying lots of money to travel for business meetings, conferences and events, that are over in matter of hours, conduct your business through video conferencing services such as Skype and not only will you save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars and cut your carbon emissions, but you’ll be able to go home and sleep in your own bed at night.

Cloth Diapers

Disposable diapers use a lot of resources in the manufacturing process, and when they are used, they end up in landfill, which means they are far from eco-friendly. By switching them for reusable cloth diapers, you could save upwards of $2000, and your baby will probably find them more comfortable too!

Tumble Dryer

Of all the appliances, we have in our kitchens and laundry rooms, nothing uses more energy than the tumble dryer. If you dry your clothes outdoors on a line or indoors using a laundry horse, you could save hundreds of dollars over the life of your dryer, and your clothes might just last that bit longer too.

Buy in Bulk

If you can buy food in bulk, you will cut down on packaging, your carbon footprint will be lower, because you will be making fewer journeys to the store and because it costs less to transport bulk food, and you will save money because bulk foods tend to be heavily discounted.

Buy a Reusable Coffee Cup

If you drink a lot of takeout coffee, instead of getting a new disposable cup with each visit, buy your own reusable cup and have the barista fill that up each time to use less finite resources and avoid sending all those cups to landfill. Many coffee shops will even charge you a little less for doings o!

Upcycle

Instead of throwing things away when they start to be a bit worn and instead of buying lots of new stuff, try to recycle and repurpose as many things as possible. Paint old furniture to give it a new lead of life, use old t-shirts as dusters and, well you get the idea. Before you toss anything, try to think about whether you could use it in a new and interesting way to save money and the planet!

Amazon Original Kids Series Annedroids New Season Premieres Today! 

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy) 

Get ready! The new season of the Emmy-nominated Amazon original kids series Annedroids premieres today March 3 on Prime Video! 

Annedroids is the hit, “robot-powered” series created by multi Emmy Award-winning producer/director J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan) and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad). The show follows Anne, a young female scientist, and her human friends, along with the android assistants she’s created, as they make amazing scientific discoveries while undertaking the biggest experiment of them all: growing up! Through trial and error, the show spotlights how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) can inspire kids to do great things.

Season 4 is sure to be a hit with your kiddos! My boys and I had the chance to review some of the episodes and they are awesome! I love how they integrate science and math into the episodes. In season 4 they will shed light on the concept of a modern day family, where “family” isn’t necessarily defined by blood relation, but rather by the people closest to you. In this season, Anne, Nick and Shania band together and use scientific approaches to solve myriad problems, including getting lost in the wilderness, dealing with a friend moving out of town, building a robot for competition, and defending the junkyard from a hostile takeover – which leads to an epic, action-packed season finale!  

Amazon Prime members GO HERE to check out this action-packed series!

DIY Fire-Breathing Dragon Craft Inspired by My Knight and Me on Cartoon Network

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by the Cartoon Network Series, My Knight and Me. All opinions are 100% my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Have your kiddos seen the adventure-packed new animated series for kids on Cartoon Network called My Knight and Me? The epic show airs weekdays at 12pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network and my son Brady is enamored with it! 

My Knight and Me, for kids ages 6-10, follows the quests of a colorful and charismatic trio of knights in shining armor: loyal, street-smart Jimmy the Squire; daring and determined Cat the Princess; and bold and courageous Henri of Orange, Jimmy’s dad and a charmingly inept, yet passionately chivalrous knight who might not be the most efficient protector of the realm – but sure is the funniest! Together, the knightly group sets out from the Kingdom of Epic to save the day and brighten the Dark Ages! 

The series models close family ties (Jimmy thinks his dad is the best!), emphasizes the importance of teamwork (together, Jimmy, Cat and Henri can overcome any challenge  that comes their way!) and underscores the importance of using strategy over might to solve problems (Jimmy is the man with a plan!). My Knight and Me also features clever anachronisms (like Smart-Mirrors that resemble today’s iPhones, set in the Middle Ages), which add to the uniqueness of the show.

I was super excited to have the opportunity to create a DIY craft inspired by the show! My son Brady, who loves to help me with crafts, immediately knew that he wanted to make a Fire-Breathing Dragon. One of the characters on My Knight and Me is a dragon named Bad Jack. He is Epic's most fearsome dragon and a frequent antagonist of Jimmy, Cat, and Henri. He spends more time seeking treasure and tormenting the people of Epic. Brady loves dragons so we thought that a dragon-inspired craft would be so much fun! 

Materials Needed:

Red and yellow streamers

Medium sized green pom poms 

Mini sized poms poms in color of your choice

Green and red glitter glue

Googly eyes

Empty paper towel roll

Glue (a glue gun would work great as well)

Tape

Scissors 

Green pipe cleaner stems

Small cups

Green construction paper

Crayons (optional)

Instructions:

1. Cut green construction paper to fit around the empty paper towel holder and glue it on. 

2. Take one of the small cups and cut a hole in the center. Make the hole big enough for the empty paper towel holder to go through. You will use this later on. 

3. Take the glitter glue and cover the outside of the cup. You can use whatever colors that you prefer, but we used green and red. 

4. While the glue is still wet, place the green pom poms and googly eyes on the front. 

5. Place two mini pom poms on the cup for the dragon nose. 

6. Let the glue dry.

7. While the glue on the cup "face" is drying, cut the red and yellow streamers into strips of "flames".

8. Cut out 3 strips of "wings" for the dragon with a grass like criss-cross pattern. Glue the wings down the center of the covered paper towel holder.

9. Take the green pipe cleaner and glue a strip down the center of the wings. 

10. Place the covered paper towel holder in the hole of the cup. It should fit snug and not loosely. 

11. Attach the "flames" on the front of the cup with glue or tape.  

12. Finally, make a "tail" for the dragon with several pieces of the pipe cleaners. Twist them together and make your "tail". Place the pipecleaners through the end of the covered paper towel holder. I taped these down on the inside so that they would stick.

13. Voila! You have a fire-breathing dragon! Brady loved blowing through the "tail" of the dragon to make the flames move!
