These 7 things are stressing out Irish mums – and the 7 things they do about it

That Mums matter is obvious, right?

But did you that mothers control more consumer spending than any other group? Families with kids make up 70% of all consumer spending. 72% of mums decide what goes on the grocery list. An astounding 98% are responsible for bills and budgeting. Mums are swinging decisions that affect all of us : business owners, producers, suppliers, marketers.
