The typical mom gets just 32 minutes to herself daily, according to Fox News. This is because more than 30% of women don’t stop parenting and running around doing household chores until at least 8pm. This, therefore, leaves precious little time to protect your family’s finances by doing a few extra hours of work. But what if you could make money using the skills that you already possess without having to slog away for hours at a time?
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner but it’s not too late to get your loved one something special! I like to stay away from the expected flowers and chocolate and step outside of the box.
Here are 10 last minute gift ideas for the man or woman in your life. Most of these can be picked up at a neighborhood store or shipped out quickly from Amazon.
Tell me below what you've grabbed your significant other or asked for this holiday if you celebrate!
