Credit card debt across North America will soar this month and parents will scramble to find the gift(s) that will light up their children’s faces. But for how long? A couple hours? A few weeks at best? And is that really worth it? Which leads me to the question, when it comes to buying Christmas gifts for our kids, just “how much” is “too much”?
Did I get you excited? I got myself excited too, so stick with me! I know there are plenty of mom’s out there who become insanely frustrated when all their hard work of shopping, chopping, prepping, smearing and stuffing lunches together in a lovingly packed adorable lunch box with a sweet little love note, comes back home at 4:00 p.m. completely un-touch-ed.
Ahh, summer! The months when food becomes superbly fresher, bedecked in dazzling colors, grilled to perfection, and packaged up in willow picnic baskets! While delicious and potentially very healthy, please be careful: summer foods are also very often laden with un-healthy amounts of salt, sugar, fats and even potentially harmful ingredients that you should try to avoid as much as possible.
