This week’s Community Announcements 2.14.20

Hi everyone, 

Happy Valentine’s Day! Anyone have any fun plans to share? I’m curious to know if you’ve planned something budget-friendly.  

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d highlight some relationship-related threads. Whether it’s a spouse, family member or friend, our relationships have a lot of say-so in how we manage our money. We’d love to get your perspective on these threads: 

This single Penny Hoarder feels uncomfortable with not having someone to bounce her financial decisions off of. For those of you who are single and managing your finances on your own, how do you deal with not having someone readily available to talk about money with? Share some tips over on the thread. 

This Penny Hoarder wants to be able to save for her kids, but right now, she’s paycheck-to-paycheck. For those of who have been there, what tips do you have?

If it applies to you, hopefully you have your Valentine’s day gifts set by now; however, if you’re still looking or want to bookmark some ideas for next year, this Penny Hoarder asked where to find free flowers, roses, snacks, or chocolate. If not free, are there budget-friendly options? Share over on the thread

A great question came up about how to teach kids about budgeting. If you have some thoughts on this, please do chime in!
