Donna is a professional in her mid 40s with an average income. She’s also a single mother with two young kids and a big bond hanging over her head. She wants to improve her personal finances and she wants her children to grow up with good money habits. At the same time it seems that consumerism is becoming more and more powerful, which makes her intentions a lot more difficult. Is anyone with children able to control their finances? She’s hoping that writing this blog will make her more aware of her own finances and financial decisions.
