I got interviewed for my local paper

A woman found this blog and sent me an email asking if she could interview me. I wrote about KidMed a few weeks ago and she was doing an article on them. She wanted someone who had been there before and she told me she found my blog and wanted to ask me a few questions. Amazing what can happen when you start a blog :)

Sugar Free Hawaiian Punch Singles to Go

I love Hawaiian Punch singles to go! They are sugar free which is something I like a lot not only because I like to cut sugar from my diet but also because I know I am not pumping my kids full of extra sugar. My kids have fun pouring the package into a bottle of water then shaking it.

These can be found at many different stores. The best place I have found them is at the dollar store. I love the dollar store! You get 8 of the little packets in a box. All you need is a normal size water bottle or either a glass full of water.

I think the flavor is a little strong for my taste so I will actually split my little pack in half to have a faint taste to mine. That makes it last a little longer for me. So if you are looking for a new drink for your kids or yourself head over to your local dollar store and check these drinks out.

There are a few different flavors to choose from. My favorite is the Lemon Berry :)

Three Cups Review and Giveaway

I recently had a chance to review a complimentary book that was self published by Tony Townsley and Scott Willy called "Three Cups." This book is based on a true story and retold by Mark St. German and illustrated by April Willy.

As new parents, my wife and I wanted to find a way to teach our children about money, so we agreed on using a weekly allowance to accomplish this. We thought it equally important to teach our children good values as related to money (saving, spending and charity) to help them develop positive habits early on that would last them the rest of their lives. This was when we came up with the idea of using three cups. We've tried to teach our children that it is not how much money you have that is important, it's how you use it. The three cups we have given them have led us on many wonderful adventures together and have brought our family a lot of joy. We hope you will experience the same joy, excitement and success using three cups with your children... and will share the Three Cups story with others.
- Tony Townsley, CPA (taken from the Three Cup's Website here)

This book is about a 5 year old boy who receives three cups on his birthday. He is disappointed at first but his parents promise that these three cups will take him on an adventure. The three cups are divided as a savings cup, spending cup and charity cup. The boy gives these cups a chance to bring him many adventures. Although it doesn't happen right away, the boy is pleased with the adventures the three cups bring him.

While many parents over think how to teach their children the value of a dollar I was impressed by the simple way this book laid out the plan for saving, spending and donating to charity. I know that if we all use the three cups system in our lives we will be able to enjoy many adventures in our lives. The adventures will not happen right away but I know that they will and can happen. I look forward to starting the adventures with my children.

You can order the Three Cups book on the website here or on Amazon here.
