Managing Gift Expectations with your Kids During the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! The holiday season is upon us and we’re about to start shopping for gifts for our kids.

Yes, we want to see their faces lit up with joy when they get that new toy they’ve always wanted, but we also want to make sure we’re not going into major credit card debt to get those smiles.

With the “perfect” gifts, you and your kids may both be smiling in December, but come March when you’re still paying down that debt … you won’t be smiling anymore.

According to Magnify Money, shoppers in the US racked up an average of $1,054 of debt during the holidays and more than half of those surveyed expected it would take at least 3 months to pay it back.

This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t buy anything for our kids. It just means we should do it responsibly.

Here are 5 strategies for getting through the holidays debt-free and managing your kid’s expectations in the process.

Ethical Investing – When Doing Well and Doing Good Meet

Every time we contribute to stock mutual funds in our 401k or IRA, we’re investing in a little slice of the companies that are included that fund. These can be tech companies like Apple or Microsoft or automotive juggernauts like General Motors or Ford. With each retirement contribution you make, you’re essentially becoming a minority shareholder in these businesses.

But what if you don’t agree with the way things are being handled at one of these companies?

  • Perhaps you care about a cleaner and greener future and one of the companies you’re investing in is a huge polluter.
  • Or maybe you’re appalled by the way factory employees are being treated globally at one of your businesses.
  • Possibly there is evidence of racial or gender discrimination happening within the four walls of a company you own a piece of.
  • How can we invest for our family’s future and get the returns required to retire comfortably while  still following our hearts?

Welcome to the world of Ethical Investing!
