Parenting and Family Tips

Finding the Right Family Home to Rent

When it comes to buying a family home, it's a massive long term financial commitment with many factors that come into consideration.

But even if you're renting with a young family, there are many big decisions to be made. Even if you're not putting down a hard earned deposit for a mortgage, a lease may see you tied to a house for a year or two or a child's life, and no one likes moving after such a short period of time, so you'll want a place you can stay in long term.

Going through a high quality property management company is a key to having a successful outcome. A good quality firm like Metropolis Property Management can take your rental needs into account and help you find exactly the right type of place for your family.

Getting New Family Portraits Taken

During the holiday season, many families start to think about getting new portraits taken. Family photos are a delicate art, so if you're considering getting some taken I recommend checking out the top portrait photographers Auckland in depth. Here are a few tips:

  • check out their portfolio on their website - do you like their style?
  • do they have testimonials from other happy clients?
  • do you vibe with them personally?

All of these factors contribute to how your family portraits come out - make it count because they can get pretty expensive!

Finding the Best Bedroom Linen for Kids

One of the big decisions parents have to make is how much of the family budget to dedicate to bedding. Bedding quality for kids can have a big impact of the quality and amount of sleep they get, which in turn impacts performance in school and can impact issues like obesity and activity levels. 

Of course, not all parents have the budget to go out and buy luxury bedding for their families, but it's worth doing a long term cost analysis to work out whether or not you might be better off spending more for quality materials that will last longer. Good quality comforter sets, for example, can last a lot longer than cheaper Warehouse versions even if they cost a bit more.

It always pays to check online and compare brands and websites to find the best deal, because buying online can often let you find better prices on good quality goods than you might get in a store SEO New Zealand
