The Tax Refund
While April 15th is long gone, hopefully your tax refund is not so long gone. If not, discussing what to do with the tax refund is a great opportunity for teaching your children about windfalls and financial responsibility.
When all the kids are home in the summer, I love to take advantage of our open schedule to do fun stuff. The problem is fun stuff can be expensive especially for 5 kids. These free/cheap ideas from The Purposeful Mom are just the ticket. Doing things at home will alleviate some of the guilt of spending money on gas, too.
