Some Hidden Fees of Raising Kids

Before you sign up for something, you're always warned to read the hidden fees. Because those fees  can show up on your bill when you least expect it wanting payment from your account. No one likes that. I certainly don't. And yes, the same can't necessarily be applied to life because you never really know what's going to happen. But it would be nice to get more of a warning. Especially with parenting. I have three kids. So my hidden fees for parenting them is multiplied by three. Don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining about being a parent. It's one of the best assignments God has given me. But keeping it real - it's extremely hard at times. And the fees associated with it can sometimes make it feel harder.

Personal Spending Fast

I don't do resolutions! Nope! I'm a firm believer in doing something because you know it's time to get it done. Start right then and there. I came to realize I needed to be even more strategic in my spending. I've decided on a personal spending fast, no purchases of clothes, shoes and accessories for the month of January. I do want to stretch it to end of June, but mentally I have to start with January.
