The Ultimate List of 10 Things To Do Now

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailWhen my father passed away from cancer in 2009, I remember one of the most frustrating things my mother and I dealt with was getting access to his various accounts and unlocking his mobile phone. We didn’t know the passwords. I have forgotten passwords to numerous accounts. I reset one, carefully file it away and then forget where the file is on my computer. It happens all the time, and I’m still sound of mind. Imagine 20-30 years from now! It’s more than just passwords that you should share with someone you trust. If you become incapacitated at any […]

Can You Eat on $4 a Day?

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailCan you eat on a $4 a day budget? I bet your $4 latte or juice you say you can’t. But $4 is the daily budget 46 million Americans must survive on to eat, based on the allocation of SNAP, the U.S. government’s food stamps program. And millions more, including cash strapped working parents, fixed income retirees, students and grads entering the workforce, live with similar limitations. We’re talking food and nourishment and the fact that many people don’t have enough on their plates for themselves or their families despite living in a country where food is plentiful. It’s called food […]

Big Heart? Small Wallet? A Thrifty Guide to Giving Back

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailMy mother (aka “The Purple Lady”) lives by her “Purple Rules” which means “Do unto others and for others.” Give graciously and generously to help others without expecting anything in return. According to the  Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University Even though women, in general, earn less than men, have less in retirement, and outlive their spouses, this study demonstrates that Boomer and older women appear to be more generous in giving to charity than comparable men, when we take these factors into consideration. “Philanthropy” is a big word that you think is applied only to the wealthy (as in […]

Women Who Give – Julie Shafer May 4

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailWith Mother’s Day approaching, I’ve decided to address an aspect of women that is continuing to grow and flourish. It is an ideal that my Mother, Sonia Young, passed on to me…”Do unto others.” Women are drawn to giving and giving back.

Before You Say “I Do” Consider These “Don’ts”

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailWhy are some women more comfortable discussing love, intimacy, diets and stomach bloating but not finances with their spouses? I admit to being one of those women for many years. I think much of it was due to my upbringing where discussing money was not appropriate; neither were religion or politics. Both of my parents worked full time earning decent incomes, but their approach to spending and saving money was not in sync, and I remember as a child listening to their fights over money. Perhaps that’s why I clammed up over money talk with my intended husband. I […]
