Children and Money, The Heavy Purse

Unveiling the New Heavy Purse Website

Unveiling the New Heavy Purse Website

No, you are not at the wrong place! The Heavy Purse has undergone a makeover, and I hope you love it as much as I do. While we are no longer as “pink” as before, this is probably a bit more inviting to the guys. šŸ™‚ Special thanks to Tanya for doing such a great job!

I’m really excited about the Get Started page. As you know, financial literacy is my passion, especially when it comes to children. Unfortunately, teaching kids about money isn’t a top priority for most parents as many of us grew up in homes where money was a taboo topic. The good news is more and more parents are embracing the need for financial literacy, but they don’t know where to begin. So I put together a roadmap to help you raise financially confident kids. And you might just learn a few new things as well!

Starting next week, I’m also going to start blogging on Wednesdays. Therefore, I will also begin accepting guest posts as well. I will post contributing guidelines soon, but I imagine they will be similar to what you have seen elsewhere. Topics must be well-written, focused on children and money or financial literacy and priority will always be given to those who regularly comment on The Heavy Purse or connect with me via social media.

Thanks for Your Support

This week The Heavy Purse was mentioned several times in conjunction with the Women’s Power Event hosted by Shannon from Financially Blonde. I am honored and humbled to be recognized by some of my favorite bloggers who are powerful, inspiring women themselves. Thank you for your incredibly kind words; they meant the world to me. I am grateful to be a part of your lives, cheering you and every reader of the The Heavy Purse to live your best life. Special thanks to Shannon at Financially Blonde, Laurie at The Frugal Farmer and Cat from Budget Blonde for mentioning me.

I invite everyone to take a few minutes and checkout the new Heavy Purse! Have a great weekend, everyone. šŸ™‚

    Oh Shannon, I LOVE it! Confession time, pink is not my favorite color and although your other site was cute this is SO much better. I seriously love it and Tonya helped you with this? I didn't know she did design, I know her more for her fabulous recipes.

    Just wanted to tell you how great the site looks and very impressive.

      Thanks, Adrienne! Yes, Tanya whips up great treats and does web design! :) Glad you enjoyed it. I liked the pink site but this is more representative of me while the other fit my pink book! LOL!
