My New Blog




Hi folks

I have started a new blog HERE called Papa's Pennies.

I've popped it in the sidebar too.

Mr Home Maker will continue on with a stronger focus on home, frugality and family.

I'll finish the retirement investing series here, but most of my 'money' stuff will ultimately find its way to Papa's Pennies

Papa's Pennies is not just about my daughters, but also your daughters, or even you.

Did your Papa teach you about money?  I'd love to hear about it good or bad.


Take care folks and stay nice

Mr HM

  1. Congratulations on the new blog, Phil.
    I'm glad that you decided to continue this blog. I'll be reading both. 😊

    In my case, it's both mom and dad who taught me about money. I knew they opened savings accounts for all their kids as soon as they were born. Though they didn't make a lot of money, they always tried to save whenever possible. I learned about saving at a very early age.

    Investing though I had to learn by my own. And am still learning. 😊

    1. Thanks Nil

      That is a great start drawing children's consciousness to savings early on. However savings and investing are often confused. I believe the concept of investing needs to e introduced early too.

  3. Sounds great, Mr HM.

    My Papa taught me a little bit about money. Credit cards are bad, he told me. It was more of a do as I say, not as I do situation - decades later they're still using credit cards. At least now, it's for the points, and not for emergencies, like in the earlier days.

    1. Thanks Frankie - it will be nice to write for a specific purpose instead of randomly. I'm pretty passionate about educating the women in my family and any others who want to join in.

  7. Hi Phil,

    Love the idea, looking forward to soaking up some wisdom with your Punchy Penny-Saving Posts ;)

    I didn't get much financial advice from parents aside from the 'no credit card, ever, if you haven't got enough money you just don't buy whatever it is'.

    That alone sets a kid up to be ahead of their peers since credit cards and buy-now-pay-later has become normalised.

    1. I can remember coming home with a credit card in 1986 and proudly showing my parents who really did not know what to say except for "are you sure about this?".

  8. Can't wait to check out the new blog! My dad sat me down one day (after I got my licence) and wrote down all the expenses involved with buying and maintaining a car, I remember thinking, I'd never be able to afford one :-)
