Keep on Saving to Retire Early and Enjoy Life

Most of the topics of my husband and I's discussions at night before going to sleep are about how we can earn more money so we could achieve our goals early and enjoy every moment we have for the rest of our lives. We also don't want to become a burden to our kids when we grow old, so we plan to have the resources and capabilities to support ourselves when that time comes. 

We've started growing our money by finding different sources of income. We also ventured into investing. One area that we try to focus on now is saving. We figured that we need to fix how we currently use our money to make our plans more effective and fast. It covers a lot of aspects of our daily lives. The simplest is how we save money by choosing where we buy our weekly groceries and planning our weekly food. 

With so many places we've invested in, it is important for us to track them so we know where we are in reaching our goals. However, it's not too easy for me because I'm not an accountant. I'm still new at this. That's the reason why I rely on online tools to make my life easier and my work faster. The best one I've found is SavingsCalculator.org. All I needed to do was input all the numbers that I have and it'll compute what I need to know about my savings. Currently, it uses US Dollars as the default currency, but you could easily convert it and it works just the same. 





The site also contains good reads if you're just starting your savings. Gathering information and making yourself aware is a good start to getting the amount that you want for your future. You can also find calculators related to education and retirement. If you're like me who wants to retire before turning 50 and enjoy traveling while my body is still capable of doing it, you should try this do and create your own tracker.

Like I always say, there's nothing wrong with longing for more money or financial stability. Money is not evil because you can use it to do good things. I wish whoever is reading this could attain financial freedom as soon as possible. That way, there will be a lot of people who will be willing to help those in need too and we can have a better world to live in.

Exploring Culinary Games with my Kids

As a mom, I've always thought of ways to teach my kids about the necessary skills that they have to learn in their lives. That includes basic cooking and growing their finances. My husband travels alone often because of his work so we know that one must learn the basics of cooking so he/she could still eat healthy food even if there's no one to cook for them. Also, learning how to properly spend your money and growing it will help them until they grow old. 

The best way to jump-start teaching them these skills is through the thing that they love most, online games. Through this, they're able to learn and grasp quickly the basic knowledge that they have to know. I found fun Culinary games online which are very accessible and interesting. It's perfect for my little girl who is just starting. She took up Kids Culinary Class in her school and doing the games will help her refresh what she have learned last year. Her favorite is the Pizza Delivery Game because it is her favorite comfort food. She was also very fond of the farming game which is good for her brain to practice and create strategies.






For our son, we've been teaching him about saving money and doing business already. He said he wants to have plenty of money so he could help a lot of people. We asked him to play food-related businesses so he would have the idea of how to run a small business, even if it's just in a game. He was able to try the Coffee Shop and Penguin Cafe games. It was indeed a fun learning experience for him since he was very curious about starting a business at a young age. 





Since we only allow our kids to have screen time for two hours a day, I got very picky with the games that we let them play. This new discovery of mine is something that moms like me would approve of because they learn and enjoy at the same time. The site is very easy to navigate and indeed very child-friendly.

My Nostalgic Memories Playing Arcade Games Online

I'm puzzled every time I watch my kids play games where they're just running around doing nothing. every time. They laugh all the time and I wonder why. Maybe, it's just me being old, but I really can't understand where the fun is. To be honest, I want them to play the old arcade games that I used to enjoy where they can use their brains and develop some skills while just playing games. 

I was recently introduced to an online platform where you can play arcade games without logging in or installing something on your computer. It's so easy. All I did was save the website on my bookmarks and play any game that interest me anytime I want. 

My 7 yo daughter and I had fun challenging each other with their Simon Says game which tested my ability in memorizing things. Of course, I still got it and beat her with a score of 11. It was so much fun. My daughter even asked me to send her the link so she could practice all by herself. 







I also found out that they have Online Domino game which is perfect because I've been planning on buying the actual board, but haven't found one in the department stores. Now, we can enjoy playing it especially when we go on vacation next week. 




There are still a lot more arcade games to choose from. I'm really thankful that I found this site because the games available are easy and fun. If you're looking for something that you could do during your family bonding night, you might want to consider checking this out. It's free, easy to follow, convenient because you can play it in your computer or gadgets anywhere, and very entertaining. Even those high-quality graphic games nowadays can't beat the excitement that these arcade games can give you. Well, that's just my opinion, of course.
