Every KitKat We’ve Ever Tried

Every KitKat we've ever tried from around the world. This post gets updated to the date we try a new one. ^_^ We love Kitkat, as  many other Japanese food and stuff. When there's a new Kitkat variety that we see, we try them no matter where they're manufactured. Most of the time though, friends gift us knowing how much we love both Kitkat and Matcha.

Best Ways To Teach Kids Financial Responsibility (Good Money Habits)

It’s heart-wrenching to tell your children that they can’t have this little pleasure because you cannot afford it.  The tendency of parents is to yield to their child's whims for as long as they can afford them.  But, this sometimes means tightening the belt a little or skimping on some other expense. It is not wrong to say, “no” once in a while.  In fact, even if you can afford these whims, it is recommended that you do not give in to your child’s every wish.  You’re not the fairy godmother or the genie in the lamp.  You need to make your children understand your financial status and in the process, they would learn the value of money.
