2020 - Home

I always like to spend the months of December and January taking stock of several aspects of life, reviewing what worked in the past year and setting my directions for the next year. I don't consciously have a "word" for the year but I do have a theme that reflects the life goals.

8 Conveniences Worth Paying For As A Working Mother

As a fairly frugal person and avid consumer of personal finance publications, I've always agreed with the mantra "why pay for something you can do yourself". Its a good policy to live by and a lot of financially savvy people will tell you that mantra is a direct contributor to their success. In recent years however, I have formulated a new mantra for myself: pay for convenience if it buys you a better life.

I really needed to adopt this new mantra as a working mom of 3. There aren't enough hours in the day for me to be superwoman so I just have to outsource some tasks and pay for some conveniences. Of course, this is also a function of disposable income and what you can afford. For me personally, here are 8 things that I pay for instead of doing myself with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life for me and my family.
