Creative and Classical Ways to Save Money for the Sandwich Generation

by Kaye Swain

Today is Franz Schubert's birthday. As a Sandwich Generation granny nanny, I do enjoy classical music for myself and my family, but I'm not even close to being an expert on the subject. Franz Schubert is one of the biggies in classical music, though, so I actually know his name. :) I can also enjoy listening to music by him, and the other biggies in classical Music on iTunes radio stations FOR FREE using a little-known (to me anyway – maybe you, as well? ) resource there – one of the more creative, practical, and classical ways to save money, you must admit.

Just click on "Music on iTunes." You'll probably see something like this on the left side of the screen (if you don't already have iTunes installed on your computer, you will need to do that first. :) ):

Creative and classical ways to save money are always a blessing for the Sandwich Generation dealing with the issues of caring for the elderly parents and babysitting grandchildren

Following the screen print above, click on RADIO on the left. Then you'll probably see the choices available on the right, so click on CLASSICAL.

Classical music can soothe a tired grandchild or an aging parent fighting dementia symptoms

On the right side of the above screenprint are just a FEW of the 115 itunes classical radio stations I can choose from. Pretty cool, isn't it!!! :)

Classical music has been found to be excellent for brain activity in our whole Sandwich Generation family – from our youngest grandkids (some parents even play it when the baby is in the womb) to our most elderly senior parents – even those with Alzheimer's Disease or other dementia symptoms! I've seen classical music calm a fussy baby. It's even supposed to be great at helping kids do homework. And you can't beat FREE! Gotta love great tips and creative ways to save money like that! Enjoy!
