CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

I absolutely love this Mom!! Her medical kits are awesome. They are the the perfect kits for mom with kids on the go. Her sports kit is great for any sport of any age! I just love that I don’t have to think about it…I just keep it in the car and it for any minor emergency.

Best kit out there

I spent months trying to buy everything that a medical kit “should” have and yet when I found this kit I realized it was all there in this small bag that someone else had done all the work for me. This is perfect to keep along in my car for emergencies. I love this and can’t wait to get them for my friends who are pregnant.

As a civilian Registered Nurse and an Army Nurse Corps veteran, I am pretty particular about what supplies I’ll use on my family when someone needs first aid. This Sports First Aid Kit by PreparaKit is, hands down, the best first aid kit I’ve ever seen. It has name brand supplies in good quantities and is organized in a logical fashion. It’s portable, lightweight and comes in a cute and durable case. Thank you for this great product!

3 Signs Your Family Needs a Morning Routine

How do your mornings feel? Do you wake up relaxed and ready to take on the day? No? I didn’t think so. Let’s get to the bottom of this. Have you ever asked yourself why? Why don’t your mornings feel good? Why don’t your mornings run smoothly? And why don’t you have...

Believe it or not, it's actually true.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's like the stories you hear about people winning the lottery yet still find themselves eventually broke.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's like my own story back in the days when I thought, "If we can just work more, we'll be able to bring home a bigger paycheck to pay off all these credit cards".⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Well, the reality was we really had a spending problem because no matter how much more we brought in, our debt continued to increase.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It was a hard pill to swallow and admit to ourselves that we did indeed have a spending problem.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The first step towards making any change in your life is acknowledgement and it wasn't until we fully embraced it that lead us on our debt free journey to now living a debt free life. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It was possible for me and it's also possible for you.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A good question to reflect upon is..."Are you happy with where you are in life and the direction that it's headed in?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If yes, that's great! If not, it might be a good time to start making some changes.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Here's to living our best lives! 🙌🏼

A mom was telling me how her college aged daughter called her one day and just told her “Thank you for making me do my laundry and clean up after myself when I was younger.” She went on to explain that she got roomed with someone who didn’t know how to do her laundry or clean up after herself and she was shocked.

I know that mom was beaming and grinning from ear to ear because I know I’d be.

Here’s to raising safe and self-sufficient kids who can take care of themselves when they leave for college!

Who’s all in for that?!? Give me a 🙌🏼! Btw, kids are way more capable than we give them credit for. I started teaching the laundry process to my kids at 5ish & 7ish but I know I could have started earlier.

DM if you’d like to know about the indoctrination process I used to get my kids to now do their laundry completely on their own. 😊

Are you doing what makes you happy?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's so easy as a mother to put everyone else's needs before your own right? And after awhile, it really starts to wear you down. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But I've been asking myself this question A LOT lately and am slowly realizing that there is definitely something missing from my life.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I still haven't figured out exactly what that is though. LOL but one thing is for sure...I'm going to be more intentional about exploring what that could look like for me.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I can still take care of everyone else and put myself up on the priority list a couple notches.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's something I should have done a long time ago but hey, better late than never right?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So are you truly doing what makes you happy?

When introducing life skills to your kids, the first skill that’s needed is responsibility. You can teach your child responsibility through chores, jobs, and pay day.
_

Look at your daily life and make a list of things your kids could do each day.
_

Start with simple tasks.
_

You can also look at your week and decide what needs to be done each week. You can assign each task a reward. This would be monetary or something like screen time.
_

Assigning certain tasks to your child that have a definite deadline and reward begins to teach them about responsibility.
_

I’d love to hear how you’ve helped your kids become more responsible. Let me know your top tips in the comments!

TBH - we can’t answer this one for you. Every relationship and partnership is different, so what works for us might not be what is best for you and your family finances.
_

You will want to weigh the pros and cons of joint and individual bank accounts before you make the decision for your relationship.
_

My husband and I have all joint accounts. We do things this way because we believe it is all our money. All of our bills and credit cards are in both of our names. It is important to us that we each have full access to all of our finances.

Do you have joint or individual bank accounts? I’d love to know what works for you! Let us know in the comments.
