As a busy working mum of two boys it's always been important to keep an eye in our finances. After I had both of my children not only did I return to work as I loved my job but it also financially made sense to, Knowing that I could provide a better future for my boys if both myself and my husband worked has always been very important to me. Over the years it has been hard juggling childcare and work, we were fortunate to have my mum in the early days so we saved huge amounts in childcare cost, it also had a positive impact on both my boys to have their grandma around.
Life as a family can get pretty hectic and financially demanding, so it's always important that we budget well for what we want and need. Of course as a busy working mother it's inevitable that I need to pick me up treat here and there knowing I work hard both at home and outside the family, I will treat myself to something other then the essentials.
Life is for living but its important for us to plan ahead and think of our future, it has been essential for us as a family and we will continue to do so well into the future.
