Thanks for the recommendations

I’m still taking recommendations for books to read, but wanted to thank everyone who has responded. I have accumulated a list of books that will keep me busy for the rest of the year and probably into the next. Since I work at a wholesale textbook distributor, I simply picked up my next book here. It was only $7.00. Not bad. (more…)

Books…taking recommendations

I just finished Smart Couples Finish Rich by David Bach. It was a good read with excellent advice for couples to get on the same page with their finances. But, now that I’m done with it, I’m having a tough time figuring out what to read next. So this morning’s post is simply a question to my readers: What financial book would you recommend? (more…)

5 gift ideas for your kids

CNNMoney had some great gift ideas to help you teach your kids about money this holiday season. Here they are, in short:

  1. Roth IRA
  2. Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday by Judith Viorst
  3. Payday, game
  4. The Sims 2: Open for Business
  5. 529 Plan Contribution

I think it’s important that you teach your kids how to handle money as early as possible. Our 3-year old already undersands that she gets money or commission when she does certain chores around the house (there is no such thing as an allowance). She has a clear jar to put her money into, until she wants to buy something. It’s great. She takes her money out, we go to the store and help her figure out what she can afford, and she pays.

I think Dave Ramsey’s quote fits well: “Our parents never talked about sex and money. We assumed they didn’t have any, turns out they had both.” If you don’t teach your kids, no one else will.
