me and my money

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

me and my money

given a chance, would you like to be on "me and my money" in the sunday times?

it is interesting to read about others and so far those who appeared are definitely big earners as we are talking about either 5 figures expenditure (personal not investment not insurance) monthly.

Hi LOLmum,

This is a very interesting question because I read this section quite a bit and enjoy reading about their success story! Seems like a lot of them make money through property and their timing seems to be always great! Most of them also loose money buying stocks and shares. A handful invest in their own business which generates money for them.

One time, I was imagining what I would have answered should I be featured on this "Me and my money"? I actually wrote down all the questions and then answer them one by one by writing them down in my diary! :wink:

No need to wait until they feature you. You can do the same too! Or you can also post your answers here for interested reader like me to read..heh..heh..
:celebrate:
