Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management? As soon as my kid starts to count and recognize money and when they begin receiving monetary allowances, I should start teaching them the importance of money and how to manage it wisely.

Going green: Cloth Pads



Have you ever-imagined life if there are no disposables? Honestly, I don’t and I thought I would never survive it because I was born to a world where disposables were already a thing. Not until. 

It was almost a month with everyday day use of disposable napkins after I gave birth that I started itching and feeling very painful on the perineal area. It has never been itchy and this time it was terribly itchy, burning and it was just unbearable. Then my OB told me probably that I wore too much disposable napkins that cause the allergy. She was right.

That moment, I finally decided to switch to cloth pads. At first I was quite ambivalent of using it because I just don't like cleaning bloody discharge and sure does takes time. But when I thought of the day that I had the burning sensation, I chose to do the latter than not being able to sleep soundly because of it. 

You know what? It really wasn't that hard to make the switch. The feeling was quite different from using disposables but the benefits it would bring are remarkable. Imagine you not spending money every month to buy disposables as well as running to the grocery stores when you are out of it. It is one way also of helping reduce the wastes generated everyday. Best of all, it just feels like you are wearing underwear minus the redness and urticaria.

There are different types of cloth napkins; some are for heavy, medium and light use. You can choose depending on your flow. It also has a lot of designs to choose from. It might be quite pricey compared to disposables but it can be worn several times and even years so it will be a big savings on the budget in the long run. These cloth pads can be bought online on Facebook.

Together, we can help save mother nature one cloth pad at a time.
