Teaching a 3 and 6-year-old about money may seem like a daunting task that they won’t remember, but even basic money lessons can begin young.
My kids know that money doesn’t grow on trees and that we all have to work for what we have, but does that stop them from wanting everything they see? Nope. LOL
Here are 5 Simple Tips to Teach Young Kids About Money
I’ve partnered with the Washington Healthplanfinder to share information about open enrollment (Nov 1st-December 15th). As always, all opinions are my own.
For the last 2 years, we’ve collaborated with Washington Healthplanfinder, where I shared personal stories and talked about affordable health care after my husband lost his job (below), and where my husband’s previous employer didn’t offer spousal insurance.
We all know 2020/2021 has been a wild ride, to say the least, which could be an understatement for most people. My husband ended up losing his job around March 2020, which meant we lost all of our insurance plans for all 4 of us. We panicked about not being able to afford bills because unemployment was a nightmare to get started, but, thankfully there were resources available to keep us afloat in this time of need.
Since we had a great experience with Washington Healthplanfinder before, we knew they would be the best option for us to sign up for health insurance in the meantime so we would have the financial safeguard if any type of emergency were to suddenly pop up. We didn’t want the possibility of a costly medical bill without health coverage to put us into debt and add more stress to the already stressful 2 years.
With 2 small children, our dream is to be healthy, and we can’t do that without staying active, getting vitamin D outside, eating healthy, taking our minerals and vitamins, and having health coverage to keep ailments at bay

A little unknown fact about me, I am not big on pasta. I know, I know. Pasta is a huge staple in many homes. I do eat it occasionally but not a whole lot. That’s why I was excited to try out the new Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto sauce since it can be used on just about anything and not just pasta dishes.
I have trouble coming up with new and exciting things to eat for breakfast outside of the normal hashbrowns, eggs, and bacon/sausage. I decided to try a little bit of Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto sauce on top of some toast with a sunny-side-up egg and avocado. It was so good!

I can’t tell you how unskilled I was in the cooking department when I first met my husband. Recipes weren’t my thing if they weren’t from a box which obviously wasn’t the greatest thing to prepare and eat. And don’t even get me started on oils, which ones are good and which ones are bad. I know now that canola oil should be avoided at all costs because it’s synthetically made, and here I’d go for that one over vegetable oil because I knew corn was genetically modified. Now that I’ve done my own research and can cook something outside of the box, one of my go-to oils is extra virgin olive oil.
Olive oil is such a lovely addition to any meal but what I did not know much was the process that olives go through in order to offer a supreme product. Flavor for Life introduced me to Le Stagioni d’ Italia 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
