The nursery rhyme says, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. And whether you followed that path or not, there was never any mention of money in the equation.
However, as any adult knows, money and how we spend it plays a big roll in our lives. By the time we settle down and start our families, we’re lucky if we have a few years of earning under our belts.
We’ve learned how to tell the difference between our wants and our needs and we understand that if we buy the newest gadget on the market, it might affect our budget more than we’d like.
But, often when we become parents (and our sleep schedule takes a beating) we can struggle to get our bearings. This can lead to the budget getting tossed to the wayside as we strive to provide the best upbringing to the newest addition to the family.
My guest this week on Wannabe Minimalist is well versed in helping new parents during this new phase of their lives.
As a financial coach, Sarah helps families with the transition to parenthood. Her approach is focused on aligning your spending with your values, ensuring that your money is helping you live the life you want, and building a strong foundation for your family.
As a mom to 2 young girls, she enjoys helping parents feel more of a sense of control during this phase of chaos and sleep deprivation.
I loved how much our conversation uncovered the connection between our money and our stuff and why it’s so important to use your values when it comes to managing both.
