#1. Preparation For The Worst

It’s one thing to build a positive platform for when things are going well. However, it’s believed that up to one in four people could not withstand a single financial mishap. Being able to cope with the money side of health issues or unforeseen circumstances can change everything. Otherwise, one moment could turn your whole world upside down. The stress caused by those situations could be huge. For that reason alone, strategic planning is key.

 

#2. Wasted Overheads

Maintaining financial stability is tough enough at the best of times. Sadly, you’ll make things a lot harder if you fail to reduce waste. There’s nothing wrong with spending money, but you must seek the best deals where possible. Couponing can save a serious amount of money on groceries and weekly shopping. Meanwhile, price comparison sites can help reduce energy rates. Perhaps most importantly, though, you should cut cell phone packages to a more suitable level.

 

#3. Financial History

#4. Entitlements

Juggling financial responsibility with parenthood isn’t easy. However, there’s a strong probability that you can gain support from local authorities and schemes. This is something many parents feel guilty about using, but this is the reason you’ve paid taxes. Even if you can survive without them, missing out would be foolish as those financial supplements can make all the difference. If it means providing your son or daughter with a better start, it’s well worth making an effort.

 

#5. Consider School Expenses

The harsh reality of life is that most average families don’t have the funds to enjoy all of the luxuries that they’d like to. Kids can be spiteful, though, so it’s imperative that you try to put their school needs first. Click here for cheap ideas for family breaks. Saving money here will allow you to send the kids on school trips and activities. This perfect combination will go a long way to keeping your children smiling without breaking the bank balance. Ultimately, that’s all any parent could ask for.

On Make Up Tutorial

I admit I am not a fan of make up. I usually wear lipstick and pressed powder and I am good to go. But it was before #kilaygoal invade every womans daily life. Before I am happy and contented with the shape of my eyebrows. A little shaving or plucking and I am happy with it. Now its a different story. Honestly, I envy those ladies who can perfectly do their eyebrows. I always asked my cousin to do my brows everytime I go to the city or anywhere, when my cousin is out I have to do it myself and most of the time I end up re-doing my brows or just going out with my natural brows.

Recently, I am addicted to make up that I am eagerly watching make tutorials for beginners on youtube. I really want to know the basic make up application so I wont be needing my cousin anymore. Moreso that he is working in Manila now, so the more reason I have to seriously learn how to do it.

With this, I bought few make ups essentials that I should have for a beginner. I found out that some make up essentials are expensive. As a beginner I opt to buy afforfable product but good for my skin type.

Next time I will be posting the product I bought and perhaps make a quick review 😁

Thoughts Of A Single Mom

… is signing off.

For two years I have been having thoughts whether to continue my other blogs since updating all of my blogs is getting difficult each day. However letting go is something that is more difficult to do. The reason why I keep on holding the Thoughts of a Singlemom blog. Also I could not simply let go of the memories I have posted in this blog. If I remember it right this blog is my second own domain blog, so I considered it a baby.

Recently, I realized that maintaining multiple blogs is not an easy task. So I have to let go. I decided not to renew the domain any more.

Time to move on and concentrate on this blog and my other blogs.
