How is Your Vacation Rental Doing?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

My Grandkids have grown up visiting the lake condo and love it. Owning a vacation rental has been a love-hate emotion for me. We bought a lakefront condo 10 years ago near lakes and an area known for entertainment venues, for what I thought at the time were great reasons. Why we bought.

How to Pick A Career

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

The Grandkids are 9 and 12 now with lots of time before they have to start supporting themselves somehow. At my Grandma Rie’s Money Camp this year, we started exploring the different careers that are out there. I wanted them to get a better understanding of just how multitudinous the career choices are out there (and will be in the future with new jobs surfacing all the time).

Should You Accept Family Money?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

It is true that grandparents love to ‘spoil’ the grandkids (I know this because I am a grandparent). When I was a young adult, out of college and into my first years of marriage, I cringed at the thought of getting money from my parents. I felt it would give them control over me in some fashion and fiercely wanted my independence. I wanted to prove myself. I thought there would be ‘strings’ attached to the use of the money.

Is the Building of Experiences and Memories Worth the Cost?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

He thinks most vacations are a waste of money (even though he seems to enjoy and remember fondly the ones we have taken), and doesn’t see the point in consciously building memories with the kids and grandkids by traveling together. How can a value be put on experiences and memories? How can one determine if they are worth the cost? Recently, an extended family trip to Hawaii got put on hold due to costs.

How to Plan a Multi-Generation Family Vacation

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

One of our son’s and his wife peeled out after touring Yellowstone, while our other son, wife and grandkids went with us to a few other destinations prior to heading home. Another time, my spouse and I took a Yellow Bus tour – sans kids or grandkids. We Baby Boomers are fueling the travel industry and many of us are taking our extended families along on our vacations. Forbes reports that travel agencies say that 10% of their trips are multi generational.

My Best Garage Sale Finds

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

The 5 Most Important Personal Finance Lessons to Teach your Child

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Here, told as I would tell it to my Grandkids, are my top 5 lessons. Before you get ready to shove those kids of yours out of the nest, here are what I consider to be (based on my experience as a person, a Mom, and a Grandma) the most important things you (or someone) should teach them about personal finance. I’m following a long range plan for camp content in my Grandma Rie’s Money Camp and it includes all of these, focusing on different things at different ages.

Gratitude Brings Wealth

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

From my Mother-in-laws perspective, the number one benefit to the great-grandkids of sending her a thank you note, is that she would continue to send them gifts. With age, sometimes comes wisdom. My Mother-in-law has long recognized the power of gratitude. She is soon to be 92 years old and uses her position as the family matriarch to teach the rest of us to be grateful. She is spunky and outspoken.
