This post is now closed to questions, but Caryn has posted answers here. Check them out now!



Hi moms.

We're glad to have you in The Family Piggy Bank group and excited to continue these Q&A posts with our Chase expert, Caryn. She is a working mother of three young children, whose job outside the home is managing a financial tool called Chase Blueprint®.

With spring quickly approaching, you may be doing some cleaning around the house and also thinking of new ways to plan for your family's future. We encourage you to ask Caryn your questions, as they relate to the tools you can use to clean up your family's finances. We know there are lots of available resources out there and want to help guide you along the process. 

You may have questions like:

  • How can I tell how much money I'm spending on diapers each month?
  • I want to go on a summer vacation with my family. How can I cut back on our spending each month so we can enjoy ourselves?
  • How can I find the money to save for my child's future?

Caryn will answer questions like these in an effort to help you better manage your family's finances. 

Best,

 ( ) The CafeMom Team

 I really want to buy a house. We are in the process of clearing up our credit to qualify. It has been a real struggle for us. What can we do to make it a little easier to manage our income and still work on clearing up our credit. We are at the bare minimum with our spending and still can't seem to get ahead.

Many experts advise having 3 to 6 months worth of income in savings.  How can we save 3 to 6 months worth of income in savings when we're barely able to meet our bills every month?
