3 Marks of a Healthy Financial Relationship

3 Marks of a Healthy Financial Relationship

My husband and I are blessed to come from families where good financial principles were modeled. Unlike many of our friends, we went into marriage knowing that it was possible to have a healthy financial relationship.

We’ve now been married for 12 1/2 years (can you believe it?!) and we’ve grown and struggled and learned a lot through those years. Today, I wanted to share three marks we’ve learned that signify a healthy financial relationship:

1. You’re on the Same Team

To win in life and in finances, you’ve got to be on the same team. This means that you leave the me versus you at the door.

Drop the phrases “his money” and “her money” and replace it with “our money.” Because if you’re going to be a team, you need to join hands — and assets.

Three Marks of a Healthy Financial Relationship

2. You’re on the Same Page

Once you are willing to be on the same team, it allows you to be in a place to get on the same page financially. There’s so much momentum and excitement that comes from working on your finances together.

This requires mutual trust and open communication. It’s a heart that says, “We are in this together — sink or swim. We are FOR each other and we are working on the same goals together.”

In order to work on the same goals together, you have to openly discuss your finances. This means talking about everything regarding finances — not just the fun stuff but also the nitty-gritty hard stuff, like where your financial pitfalls are and what parts of your budget are coming up short.

3 Marks of a Healthy Financial Relationship

3. You’re Willing to Compromise

If you want to stay on the same team and the same page, compromise is essential. You aren’t always going to agree all the time. In fact, you are more likely to disagree much of the time.

This is why you need to be willing to compromise. A strong and healthy relationship requires give and take, with both parties being willing to give up what you want for the other’s good.


What do YOU think are some marks of a healthy financial relationship?

    • 2 packs of Seventh Generation 64-count Baby Wipes
    • 1 Grove Collaborative Hand Sanitizer

ePantry has worked really, really hard for the past few months to put together an offer that I would stand behind 100%. I kept sending them back to the drawing board to figure out a way to make the offer better because I want it to be the very best offer they could give you all.

I’m thrilled with the final offer they’ve put together and am so excited that many of you have been really excited about it, too.

Did you see this HOT deal on diapers and wipes?

I’ve mentioned this special Introductory Baby Bundle Offer multiple times in the last week, but I wanted to highlight once more because the offer ends Sunday night and I don’t want anyone to miss out!

Here are 5 reasons why I LOVE this offer — and why I think you will, too:

1. This Introductory Price is pretty much the BEST you will see anywhere!

ePantry did a bunch of price comparison and came up with a deal for you all the pretty much beats out every other per-diaper offer on Seventh Generation diapers.

2. The ePantry customer service is amazing!

I cannot say enough good things about ePantry’s customer service. They are so committed to serving and giving everyone the very best experience possible.

If you have any issues before, during, or after placing your order, they want to help you out. During business hours, you can use the live chat feature (look for it at the bottom of each page on their site — it will only show up when there is someone there live to help, but it will usually always be there during normal business hours) to ask any questions you have.

I have met all of their core team in person and spent time with them and can attest that they are some of the nicest, kindest, most generous people out there. They run their business with integrity as well as generosity.

{And by the way, just as an example of the kind of people that they are: we’d had this special offer planned for weeks and weeks — long before we had any idea that this was going to be a hard week for me personally and that I was going to be down and out for a couple of days due to surgery. Not only did they send me flowers and check in to see how I was doing regularly, but they offered to change the sale to another week or write all of the blog posts for me so that I didn’t have to worry about a thing!}

3. You’ll never have to worry about running out of diapers & wipes again.

Have you ever had to make a run to Walmart or the drugstore in the middle of the night to buy diapers or wipes because you discovered you were completely out? With this special Bundle Pack offer, you can get a month’s supply of diapers delivered to your door every single month.

You’ll never have to worry about making a late-night run for diapers again! All you need to do is enter your child’s weight and a bundle with the right size diapers arrives at your doorstep.

You’ll automatically receive the bundle with 5 packs of diapers, 4 packs of wipes, and a hand sanitizer each month and you can customize the diaper size as your child grows. You can even mix and match sizes when your baby is in that in-between-sizes stage.

{Psst! If you’re looking for a really helpful gift idea for someone you know who is having a baby, signing them up for this Baby Bundle offer could be an amazing gift idea!}

Our Almost $0 Baby Budget For Our 1st Baby (How & Why We Did It)

Our $0 Baby Budget

Ten and a half years ago, we welcomed our first child into the world — a beautiful baby girl, Kathrynne. Jesse was in law school at the time, I was trying to piece together enough income from various online pursuits to keep us afloat, and needless to say, we were poor as poor can be.

We were so poor, in fact, that we spent right around $0 out of pocket on baby things. Not because we didn’t want to spend anything, but because we literally had no extra money to spare.

As best as I can recall, the only thing we spent money on was a baby blanket. For real.

{I was overdue and we realized that we were going to be having this baby sooner rather than later and it was January, so we probably needed more than the one blanket we’d been given by a friend!

We scrounged together a few dollars, went to Walmart and bought a blanket, and that was the last we spent until Kathrynne was close to one year old and we went and bought her a cute new outfit to get her pictures taken for Christmas gifts.}

Our $0 Baby Budget

How did we spend almost zero out of pocket on baby things? Well, here’s how:

1. We Used What We Were Given

We were blessed with very generous friends. So blessed, in fact, that we ended up having three different showers thrown for us! One was by Jesse’s co-workers, one was by our little church, and one was by our church back home.

When people asked what we needed or wanted, we suggested practical things — like diapers, wipes, onesies, sleepers, and blankets. We ended up being gifted enough clothes to make it through almost the entire first year of Kathrynne’s life without buying her any new clothes.

A few people went in together and bought us some of the larger items — like a stroller, playpen, and carseat.

Our $0 Baby Budget

2. We Willingly Accepted Hand-Me-Downs

Some friends kindly offered to let us borrow their baby items or passed along baby clothes to us. We willingly accepted all of these offers and they were a huge blessing!

Yes, Kathrynne may not have been outfitted in name brand, brand-new clothes most of the time, but she survived just fine! Plus, I discovered that I didn’t have to worry if something got stained or ripped because it was already used and worn. :)

3. We Focused on Needs Versus Wants

It’s nice to have some of the non-necessities, but I’m here to tell you that your baby will be just fine without them.

Kathrynne didn’t have very many outfits per size. In fact, in most sizes, she only had 6 outfits, plus PJs. Yes, this meant I had to keep up on laundry more, but she survived.

We also had very few toys or baby gadgets. Some of the gadgets are nice and helpful, but very few could be considered actual necessities. {I wrote a post here with a list of what I consider to be the only items you really need to buy for your baby.}

This might not work for you. You might not have friends who bless you with multiple showers or offer you hand-me-downs. But I hope that this post encourages you to think outside the box and to realize that babies can get by without all the bells and whistles.

What are your best tips for saving money on baby things? I’d love to hear!
