Budget Hacks for Moms: 4 Ways to Escape the Financial Treadmill

Did you know that over a third (34%) of Americans have no savings whatsoever?

Another 35% have less than $1,000 in savings. That’s not enough to cover many car repairs, much less afford a 30-year retirement.

The average household savings rate in the U.S. in June (the most recent data available) was a paltry 3.8%. It’s no wonder Americans feel like they can’t get ahead, no matter how hard they work.

Too many American families are on this financial treadmill. They work and work and work, but never feel like they get anywhere financially, because nearly every penny they earn goes right back out the door.

If you want to give your household a kickstart, to pull ahead of these dismal averages, you need to get off this treadmill. Here are some family-oriented budget hacks that any mom can implement, to start spending less and saving more.

Why switch to cloth pads?

Cloth pads are better for your health. Similar to disposable diapers, disposable maxi pads contain moisture absorbing chemicals and gels, bleached cottons and plastics and a whole lot of toxic fragrance. Cloth pads are chemical and fragrance free. Who would want all those toxins skin-to-skin in one of your most delicate and sensitive areas anyways?

Raise an Adventurous Eater Without the Food (and Money) Waste

Raising an adverturous eater without the waste via @chgdiapers

Note from Maria: After reading the referenced article, I asked Adina to write about things parents can do to solve this problem. After my experience taking the online feeding course, I knew she’d have great insight.
