OGS Elternbeiträge Deckelung aufgehoben
WTF?!? :facepalm

Bonn: Stadt Bonn - Deckelung der OGS-Elternbeiträge ist aufgehoben
Bis maximal 170 Euro pro Monat und pro Kind können die Eltern künftig zu den Kosten der Offenen Ganztagsschulen herangezogen werden. Dies geht aus einem Runderlass hervor, den die Landesregierung heute herausgegeben hat.

Bedeuten tut es, dass Kindergarten und Schule der grösste monatliche Ausgabenposten bald sind. :-!

Personal Finance Manager
Since yesterday I am looking on some personal finance manager tools for Linux. I need to track bit more in which areas we spent our money. I cannot believe that the 2nd biggest asset after living costs is kindergarten and all the fees and bills we have to pay for our kids. o_O The spreadsheet I started two weeks ago is not working well for this, so I am looking for a better solution. I have worked with #KMyMoney for some time before, but 8-10 years ago. On my current distribution I also found #HomeBank and #Skrooge what I have heard much about in the last time.

HomeBank is a simple program with most features you would expect, but it just feels too alien on my KDE desktop. Also the imports are just the basic ones.

Skrooge is bit more powerful and also integrates into my desktop much better. Interesting dashboard and nice looking. It has quite many imports and also a KMyMoney import. Had some crashes and I was missing a feature to import my transactions directly from my bank.

KMyMoney I already used several years ago. It is still the most powerful tool from the ones that I looked at and the only one with HBCI to directly download my bank transactions from the bank. Because I used it before the usage felt directly common and also the only one to import my bank transactions. I think I will go with KMyMoney again.

Last night I also played a bit with Android's GnuCash on my Jolla phone. I think I can use this to track my cash expenses on the go and import them later to KMyMoney. But this workflow I need to test bit more, especially how to map accounts and categories between these two.

What tools do you use? Any other recommendations or workflows?

Milchmischgetränke bieten geschmackliche Abwechslung und können so dazu beitragen, dass Kinder generell an eine gesunde Ernährung mit Milch und Milchprodukten herangeführt werden. Die über die Milch reichlich gelieferten Nährstoffe Calcium und Eiweiß sind besonders wichtig während des Wachstums. Die Realität zeigt, dass nur etwa 10% der Kinder regelmäßig die Milch pur trinken und rund 90% den Milchmischgetränken den Vorzug geben.
Und wieso hat eine Packung der Mixgetränke schon eine Tagesportion Zucker für ein Kind?
