It’s my birthday today. Since this day falls after a three-day weekend, my husband and I took advantage of our day off work yesterday to celebrate. I really wanted to go hiking, but considering it’s sub-freezing temps here I wimped out. So, we slept in, he made me breakfast, we dropped the kiddo off, and […] The post 10 Money Questions for Reflections on Your Birthday appeared first on Femme Cents. ...

This last weekend, I attended the inaugural Cents Positive event. I was interested in the event when it was first announced, and then when I learned it would be held within a reasonable driving distance from my home, I took that as a cosmic sign that I was meant to go.  I probably wouldn’t have […] The post The power of women speaking money (reflections on Cents Positive) appeared first on ...

I was recently commiserating with a friend of mine about the challenges of working and parenting. Even when you have fantastic childcare available it can still be hard to balance a full-time gig and feel like you’re succeeding as a parent. Most of the time, I like working. I worked very hard to earn a […] The post We need more professional part-time jobs appeared first on Femme Cents. ...

Today’s post isn’t about money, but about intentional living. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about friends that I have lost touch with. Two in particular. Both were great friends of mine in college, but in the years since, between moving and life changes, we just sort of stopped talking. I still consider them dear […] The post August Challenge: Be a Better Friend appeared first on Femme Cents. ...

Can you believe we’re already halfway through 2018?? It’s crazy! Since we’re halfway through the year, it’s probably a good time to check back in regarding my goals for 2018 and see how we’re coming along. Personal Finance Goals Max out a 457 account – FAIL. This was a lofty goal to start with. It’s […] The post Mid-year goal update appeared first on Femme Cents. ...

I spent a bit of time this weekend looking at my net worth and my financial goals and continually thinking, “If I had just done X differently than we’d be so much better off.” If I hadn’t bought those stupid new cars… If I hadn’t gone to grad school… If I had simply bought a […] The post You can’t change the past… so ditch the regret appeared first on Femme ...

Happy Monday, friends! I’m writing this late on Sunday night with a slight sunburn and a full heart after coming home from spending a weekend camping at the lake with friends. I took the weekend to do a full internet and technology blackout and I have to tell you it felt SO GOOD. Why I […] The post Appreciating the value of your attention (and how to re-claim it) appeared first ...

For many in the U.S., Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. I’ve spent the whole weekend barbecuing after celebrating my Dad’s birthday yesterday and planning a potluck cook-out with friends today. I’m also taking some time to get a head start on my summer reading! Here is a list of some of […] The post My 2018 Summer Reading List appeared first on Femme Cents. ...

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” It seems like such a simple, innocuous question. You may have asked it to a kid recently. I know when I was growing up, I was asked this question all the time. However, I think this question is doing a disservice to our kids. The […] The post Stop asking kids “What do you want to be when you grow up?” ...

Two weeks ago, I published a post musing over the amount we’ve spent on home maintenance in the last couple months. For me, thinking about spending naturally leads down a rabbit-trail of thoughts to think about income and how we’re paying for all of it. Are our incomes and decisions in line with where we […] The post Choosing the path of most resistance appeared first on Femme Cents. ...
