My husband and I would like to make the most of our extra money before we have kids. What are the best options?

My husband [M27] and I [F25] have been saving and doing home repairs for the last year. All of the major home issues have been addressed and we currently have 7 months worth of emergency funds in the bank. We do not have any debt aside from our mortgage (5.25%) and we already pay some extra principle each month.

We typically save around $1200 a month as we have no kids, but we plan to start a family in 1-2 years. My husband works at a smaller company that does not offer 401k so we have my 401k contribution set to 15% to help make up for it. We do not have any investments other than 401k. I recently became eligible for my work's employee stock purchase plan at the 15% discount. I would have to hold the stock for a year before selling. We have thought about buying quite a bit of stock but do not know if we should sell as soon as we can or try to hold it longer term.

What would be the best option for us to put our extra money into for now?

Making family planning is common in order to live a happy life. Having children definitely increase your money spending but it gives lots of relief from the normal busy life. Making extra money is a choice for everyone. We must do more planning for that.view website

From my experience I can tell you that the best way to make money is freelancing. First of all, you work from home, you do not have to wake up early to commute to your office. You simply work from home for example at writing service as my essay writer and you complete tasks for students. Easy, agree?

I think there is no need to work in some restaurant doing dirty work as washing dishes, serving food when you can work smart using your brain.
