Welcome to!


It is important that you know how much we appreciate your support and the priviledge of connecting with you each month. The growth of Our Milk Money has been rapid for more than 3 years and we are excited about what is on the horizon. Our plan is to continue expanding until every parent is represented, and every product or service is available to you through the directory. Our success would not be possible would it not be for so many of our members that have become personally invested in Our Milk Money's mission and have devoted themselves to supporting parent owned businesses and by helping to spur personal development as entrepreneurs and household runners. As idealists with a deep love for our families, we know that it is our children who has made us who we are and where we are today.

We are parents that have joined together with a commitment to support each other in our business endeavors and by offering products and services as a way of earning an income to support our families. Your purchases make it possible for many of us to stay home with our children, and make our families a priority. Our Milk Money supports these efforts by providing a tool to easily find these family owned businesses and by putting value on every dollar that is spent and earned.

We invite you to explore our directory and discover how easy it is to support us.

Please, enjoy the rest of our newsletter, and share our mission with others who will want to know what we are accomplishing together.
