We are constantly looking for resources to help all male military spouses and we are happy to share a great online resource for dads.

Help is available for male military spouse dads at the National At-Home Dad Network. All dads can learn from this online resource that provides support, education and advocacy for fathers who are the primary caregivers of their children.


The National At-Home Dad Network is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, education and advocacy to fathers who are the primary caregivers of their children. The organization has chapters in over 69 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada and hosts one of the longest-running fatherhood events in the world, the 18th Annual At-Home Dads Convention in Denver, CO on Oct. 18-19, 2013.

The National At-Home Dad Network recognizes two of the greatest challenges at-home dads face - Isolation and Identity - and has some great information for dads on how to overcome these challenges. We encourage male military spouse dads to visit their site and we will be sharing some of their content here on Macho Spouse.

How Much to Spend on Christmas Gifts

RobSitePic.jpgWhatever your Winter Holiday tradition, now is the time when many cultures have historically livened up the dark days of winter (in the Northern Hemisphere) with celebrations of community, charity, and gift-giving*.  Going into debt, however, should not be a part of your tradition.

How much should you spend on Christmas?


I'm big on using percentages when budgeting.  Except for the really, really poor or really, really rich, it makes sense to me that if Martha gets paid 50% more than George, then Martha can spend 50% more than George.  That generally goes for housing, cars, or Christmas presents. In other words, don't try to “keep up with the Joneses,” especially if you get paid less than the Joneses.  That's the idea behind the 60% Budget: keep regular, monthly expenses down to 60% of your gross income, so you can save 10% each towards retirement, long-term savings, and short-term savings; the last 10% is 'fun money' for Starbucks, beer, wine, pizza, McDonald's, toys, etc. Ideally throughout the year you've saved up enough in your short-term savings to pay for Christmas, even after you've paid for oil changes, shoes for the kids, and a trip to the beach over the summer.

Are Military Families Victims of an Energy Scam?

Does anyone else feel this is a issue? I know we've been hit a few times with outrages electric bills even when the house was empty for a month.
