One of the main changes in US society as a result of the recession that hit in October 2008 is that women now make up nearly half the workforce. Almost a third of married women are now contributing significantly to the wealth of their household by working outside the home. Countless families are now headed by women. Yet only about 25% of women have thought to take out a life insurance policy to try to protect their family from the financial shock of their untimely death.
Even for those that do have insurance, they are often underinsured, which risks their family being stuck with final expenses and little to live on if her salary was to disappear overnight.
Life insurance is not just for men, and it can also be a valuable planning and investment tool to help you improve your financial future. If you have any dependents, take some time today to look over your existing life insurance to see if you are underinsured, or start looking into the range of life insurance options to see which one makes sense for your family, situation and budget.
One of the things we love most about the online world is how easy it is to gain new skills. There are so many great ways to learn, through ebooks, webinars and videos. YouTube is a treasure trove of educational videos, entertainment and more. We don’t know about you, but none of us can remember the last time we watched TV!
Ebooks through Amazon are great because you can read them on any device. Just download the right FREE app for your device/s of choice and then check your books in and out of your digital library, from one device to the other.
We just spotted this really interesting series of videos on how to make money online in the online marketing field. Just think what even an additional $20 to $100 per day could do for you and your family. In most cases, you sell products for others as an affiliate, and get a commission. Affilliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to get started in a real business of your very own. And because it is online and digital, there are very few start up costs, and it will earn for you around the clock. You can sign up for a free ecourse via email to learn more about affiliate marketing: Free ecourse
You can even make money as an expert yourself if you have the kinds of skills that people want to learn. You can be a personal coach, offer instructional webinars, and position yourself as a leader in your industry. Again, just think what a difference this kind of additional income could make in your life. Don’t be stuck in a poor money mindset when there are so many opportunities online.

A fantastic book for all things vegetarian. I have cooked my way through this book over the years and everything always turns out well.

This is the third guide in the authors’ series on eating well for less and builds on the first two books very well to expand your list of great make and freeze meals your whole family will enjoy. I was impressed with how clear and well-written this book is, just like the other two, and how well all the recipes I tried came out. These recipes can be used right away, or frozen into portions for TV dinners, or frozen as an entire meal you can have on hand for guests/the holidays or when the kids are on vacation. The recipes were written very clearly for even a beginner cook, so they can get good results. They are the typical kinds of things most American families would enjoy eating at home, or at a restaurant. These authors give a lot of great advice and clearly know their way around a kitchen. They sure know a lot about freezing foods as well so nothing goes to waste.

This is the second recipe guide in this series and helped me get even more out of my freezer than before. In response to a lot of reader questions, they give not just recipes, but a very thorough guide as to all the important considerations when buying a new freezer. PLUS they also teach you how to get the most out of your freezer space for maximum efficiency. I’ve been cooking my way through both books and everything has turned out great. We might almost worry about gaining weight but I am portioning things out really carefully and stretching the whole meal with lots of vegetables. Putting together special meals for the different tastes in my family is really easy now-I followed their suggestions about the containers and it works great. No more picky eaters. The proof of the pudding in any cookbook is to make the recipes and these are clear, well-organized and perfect for beginner cooks who want to learn how to make their favorite dishes without having to buy pre-prepared meals or eat out. I’ve saved a lot of money cooking the way they suggest so I highly recommend this guide to every beginner cook.
