This site is aimed at parents but it’s really for children. The goal is to help parents provide for their children without breaking the bank, and having fun in the process.
This site was founded by parents who decided that they didn’t want their children to suffer the kinds of financial constraints of those who were blindsighted by the 2007 credit crunch. With that in mind, this site aims to:
- Provide original and interesting content about family, fun, money, and more!
- Give you reviews of toys and children’s products so you can learn from our experience before spending your own money
- Build a community of parents that are here to support each other and help us all grow as parents.
Ultimately, we know that the most important thing we can do for our children is love them, keep them safe and healthy and teach them right from wrong. Those things don’t necessarily cost anything, but no matter how much you can tell yourself that the material stuff doesn’t matter, it was really tough to not feel guilty when the kids asked for something small and we couldn’t afford to give it to them. Guilt is a powerful thing, even when it may not be warranted. It’s an ambitious goal but we are up for the task and hope you will let us know what you think of our website.
