Planned Purchasing (0:00:00) Now that winter is here and all of the summer clothes are on sale, I never know if I should take a risk and stock up on swimsuits for my family, or just wait until the weather is warm again and pay full price. What’s more frustrating? I’ll have the same internal battle in six months when the coat I want now goes on sale. What do we do? Family finance specialist, Jen Smith from Modern Frugality, is here to share the best time of the year to make our various purchases. The Effect of Depression on Kids (0:14:39) As parents, we want to be happy for our kids!
