Make a Spending Plan

Did you set New Year's resolutions? Did you include "Getting in Shape" in order to be more financially fit?

These planning tools may help you "shape up" your spending. And, if you have school-age children or grandchildren, there's a "money map" below.

Shape Your Spending by Creating a Plan - A good spending plan can help you stop “spending leaks” and keep you from spending money without thinking.

Find the Spending Plan module here – it only takes about 30 minutes to complete. https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/moneymatters/budgeting/

Money Map for children in 3rd-12th grades: This new tool from the CFPB will help children understand how to manage their money. The “Map your money journey” is for students in grades 3–12. When children complete the survey, they are given three things they can do to improve their money journey.

Happy New Year and Cheers to Financial Fitness!

A spending plan (also called a budget) is simply a plan you create to help you meet expenses and spend money the way you want to spend it. A good spending plan

Can you reheat leftovers in a slow cooker?

Reheating leftovers in a slow cooker is not recommended. However, cooked food can be brought to steaming on the stove or in a microwave oven and then put into a preheated slow cooker to keep hot for serving. Use a food thermometer to be sure the food stays at 140 °F.

Leftovers and Food Safety

Often when we cook at home or eat in a restaurant, we have leftovers. To ensure that leftovers are safe to eat, make sure the food is cooked to a safe temperature and refrigerate the leftovers promptly. Not cooking food to a safe temperature and leaving food out at an unsafe temperature are the two main causes of foodborne illness. Safe handling of leftovers is very important to reducing foodborne illness. Follow the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service's recommendations for handling leftovers safely.

Set mealtime routines with your family

Mealtimes are a time to talk and relax together.

If your family can’t eat together every day, choose one or two times a week to have family meals. Write the time on your calendar.
Eat at the table. Toddlers get distracted easily. Sitting at the table, without the television or other distractions, helps focus. Set the table before the meal. Seeing the dishes on the table helps your child learn to associate the table with dinner. As your child gets older, she can help set the table.
Serve “family-style.” Put the food in serving containers on the table, and encourage your child to put some food on his plate. Serving himself helps your child learn how much food it takes to fill up. At first help him by saying things like, “Just take one piece and if you need more, you can have it after you eat what is on your plate.”
Handle spills in a kind way. Toddlers’ motor skills are still developing, so eating with a fork or spoon is hard. When spills happen, be calm. Say, “Everyone spills sometimes.” Let your child help clean up the spill.
Talk with your toddler. Talk about what he did during the day. Ask questions that he can answer. Show how to talk with the rest of the family.
Your toddler may be finished eating after a few minutes. Remember toddlers have short attention spans. Encourage him to sit with the family for a few minutes, but let him get up and do something else when he starts squirming. He can play nearby while the rest of the family finishes the meal.
Do it the same way every day. Toddlers learn routines by doing them over and over. Your child will learn what to expect, and the routine will make her feel more comfortable and secure.

Use words to describe the way your child feels Your child can show intense feelings — suddenly becoming excited, frustrated, happy, angry, or afraid. Give each feeling a name. When a box won’t open or a car won’t roll, your child may drop it or throw it in anger. Tell him calmly that you know ...

Giving Tuesday is a great time to show your gratitude by donating to help others. But you don’t want to give money to a fake charity or scammer (any day of the week).

Before you donate this Giving Tuesday ― and anytime you’re asked to give to charity:

- Research the cause or the organization. Search online for the name of the organization or cause with words like “review,” “scam,” or “complaint.” See if others have had good or bad experiences with the charity. Check out what charity watchdog groups say about that organization.
- Know that it’s ok to ask questions. If the request for a donation is over the phone, the caller should be able to answer critical questions. For example, how much of your donation will go to the program you want to help? Is the caller raising funds for a charity or for a Political Action Committee (PAC)? (Donations to PACs are NOT tax-deductible.)
- Slow down. You don’t have to give over the phone, and anybody who pressures you might be someone you want to avoid giving to.
- Know who’s making the request. Don’t assume a request to donate is legitimate because a friend posted it on social media. Your friend might not personally know the charity or how it spends money. When you do your own research, double-check the exact name of the organization. Scammers will pick names or use website addresses that sound very similar to legitimate well-known charities.

This Giving Tuesday, and in this season of giving, consider starting with a plan for year-end donations. That way, you have time to do research, make your gifts, and tell anyone who asks that you’ve already given. Learn more at ftc.gov/charity.

If you see a charity scam, report it at ReportFraud.ftc.gov and to your state charity regulator.
