If this is your first time here, Molly’s Money is a regular series I write on this blog that includes ALL things personal finance – debt management, budgeting, home buying, savings, investment, etc. I am NOT a financial advisor, but I am married to one! These are just things that I have learned over the years as I struggled with my own personal finances and ultimately, became debt free in 2012. Got a question about money that you want answered? Leave it in the comments below or email me!
I am so excited to share some exciting news and a recent published article with y’all! I’m now officially a contributor to the PTPA Mom & Baby Guide, an e-magazine geared towards moms, you know… with babies! 🙂 Anyway, it’s a GREAT e-publication and I’m really pumped to have the honor to contribute to it.
My first article for the Family Finance section titled “What to Expect Financially When You’re Expecting” just appeared in their Fall 2014 issue! You can check out a little excerpt below and click to read the full article on Page 11. 🙂

And even if your baby has already graced you with his / her presence, it’s never too late to get things straight financially.
This is, by NO means, an exhaustive list of things that you may need to be prepared for or things that you should take into account financially when preparing for a baby. However, this simple three-item list will at least get you started and thinking before baby comes.
