5 tips for teaching kids about finance

Teaching kids about finance Money can be a difficult subject in any situation as it’s often associated with headaches for various reasons from paying the mortgage, energy bills, council tax, to putting fuel in your car….  so it’s the last thing we want to talk to our kids about.

At some point in their adult life they will have to make financial decisions, so giving them skills as a...

Mr Lee’s Noodles review

Mr Lee’s Noodles review Lunchtime this week as been a bit different here at MumsClub HQ. We’ve been sampling noodle cups of gourmet Chinese food from Mr Lee’s Noodles. There was a mix of trepidation and excitement from our team, some are life long fans of the far from healthy pot noodles of years gone by so wondered about their taste, and after sampling other similar noodles earlier this year, the other half were excited to try new ones. We had a mix of middle aged mums, dads, a 20 year old and some pre-teen kids, everyone had different...

Everdine Gourmet Food review

Everdine Gourmet Food review We were delighted to be sent a sample of Everdine’s new subscription service, which could possibly create the healthiest business mum in the country… me! Oh and before I go any further, we have a generous £30 discount code to pass on too (IN1MUMSCLUB). Working from home, one thing I am guilty of is being in front of the computer for most of the day, usually grazing rather than eating lunch. No surprise that I recently posted a self-pop graphic along the lines of “no wonder she’s a bit plump”. But let...

Christmas Card recycling

Christmas Card recycling Every year we love to both give and receive christmas cards, but with the rise of technology there are clearly fewer cards being sent year on year. Technology is brilliant and has revolutionised our lives but a digital card just doesn’t look the same hanging off the mantelpiece does it?! So each year, and I admit it is a challenge, I suggest/ask/encourage/browbeat/insist/threaten my little one to lovingly make our own cards. 🙂 But it’s not easy at all because with iplayer, youtube and minecraft all vying...

What type of mum are you?

What type of mum are you? Do you remember the mum salary quiz we told you about a few months ago where you find out how much you actually earn? We loved it so much that we’ve found another for you! It’s call “What type of mum” and it aims to tell you the type of mum you are by examining your responses and reactions to a set of given circumstances, and matching your personality to the characteristic mum you relate to most. We’ve all observed, admired or even envied other mums in the playground or assemblies, so we appreciate...
