Before having children, I worked full-time and regularly contributed to my employer-sponsored retirement fund.After our first child was born, my husband and I decided it was best for me to stay at home.Unfortunately, I feel bad because we don't have a lot of money and I'm afraid she won't say yes if I choose a cheap ring. I’ve saved ,000 in an emergency fund and have invested a substantial amount of money in stocks.Is it a good idea to invest a portion of my emergency savings into stocks, a 529 college savings plan and a Roth IRA so it can earn more money? I graduated from college last year and have begun my professional career in an entry level position.But honestly, I’m not a big fan of cooking, so my family eats out a lot.Do you have any tips on ways we can still save money when dining out?
I like to keep my children and family active and limit their time indoors watching TV or playing video games, but planning a day of activities can get expensive.I don't want to waste money; what items are worth buying at my local discount store?During the summer I thought I’d do some home repairs.I want to go back to school to finish my degree, but I’ve been putting it off because I’m not sure that I can afford it.Aside from scholarships and student loans, what are some ways that I can pay for college or reduce the cost of attendance?
