Saving & Spending

saving spending
Awhile ago, I made spice jar piggie banks to teach B about the different coins, but I still needed something bigger for him to keep his money in and to talk about saving and spending so I used these formula cans. I covered them with paper and let B decorate them.

We talked about the difference between saving and spending and I wasn’t sure he really knew what I was talking about. I quickly found out that he knows he would rather spend the money. When he finds a handful of coins he puts an equal amount in each bank but if there is an extra one I let him choose which one to put it in and sure enough he always picks the spend bank to add the extra coin to. I don’t blame him!

    This is a good idea! We use the Dave Ramsey bank and there is also a “Give” bank.
