Welcome to Family Money Adventure

Freedom to Live.
Freedom to Explore.


These are the three main components of our content. We want to share how we manage our finances as a family so that we can spend more time together bonding over shared experiences - like travel.


Our site is for families, or those planning a family. Our family means the world to us and I know that you feel the same way (about your own family of course. We will be satisfied if you just like us).That is why most of the content you find here is all about the kids. In the future we plan to expand on content for teens as our kids grow. Subscribe to stay up to date on our latest posts.


Money is important. It’s hard to do most things without it. Growing up, I don’t remember learning about money, spending, saving, budgets or retirement. Most of us aren’t taught about money until we already are in debt or have made poor financial decisions. We want to share some practical solutions for making your money work for you. Financial freedom should be a goal for every family.


Our family loves adventure. We love to explore, learn and have fun wherever we go. Adventures can be local. Adventures can be in your own neighborhood or even your own house. Our goal is to share ways you can find more room for adventure in your family’s life, whether through travel tips or learning to get creative in your part of the world. Oh and we make sure to share how to do it on a budget.

  • Cash envelopes were our introduction to money management. For several years, we used cash envelopes as a way to control our spending and save money. It worked for a while, but I absolutely hated monthly trips to the bank to pull out cash. Also, let’s be honest — using cash is a pain. It just is. Using a card to make payments is so much more convenient.

    Family, Money, and Suicide

    September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Honestly, it’s not a topic I’ve had to deal with much in my life until this past year. I’m not getting into specifics out of respect for others, but we had someone in our extended family commit suicide this past year. I wasn’t incredibly close to him at this stage in our lives beyond our friendship through social media. But that doesn’t make the reality of what happened any less horrific.
