Weighing Your Options

Here's an excellent information from Bank of America on how to save money every day! The text from their infographic is reprinted below:

"The average workday can take a toll on your personal finances. With a dollar here and a dollar there, those little expenses can add up over time. By taking advantage of better money-saving alternatives, you can make small changes that allow you to put aside some additional savings, make an investment in yourself or just have some fun.

The Money Talk?

Did your family give you the "money talk" when you were a kid?

The fact is, most families do not sit down with their children and talk about money—how it’s earned, spent, invested or used. But that doesn’t mean that money lessons aren’t learned anyway. Our kids absorb through listening and observation. They know relative to their peers whether they have more (or fewer) toys and clothes, go on more vacations or have a bigger (or smaller) home. They form opinions, even without any formal discussion.
