Moms Kick Economic Crisis in the Butt!
Millions of savvy moms keep household economics humming. Now they're managing families' tighter budgets and teaching their kids some frugal lessons for the future. I would travel the country documenting moms taking on the economy.
Millions of savvy moms keep household economies humming. So how are they managing their families' budgets now? And what are they teaching their kids through their frugal efforts? I would travel the country interviewing and photographing our greatest economic asset -- mothers with new ways to pinch pennies.
Few are talking about the things families are having to do to make ends meet, save for college and retirement and not implode with worry. Teens are chipping and working mothers are taking extra part-time jobs they never thought they'd be doing just to keep their families going.
I plan to travel the country to document the stories of mothers who are doing the hard work every day to keep their families afloat, who can also show financial big-wigs and economists a thing or two about thrift and belt-tightening, and how they've turned it into important life lessons for our next generations.
