  1. This sounds awesome! I’m the same way with my 4 year old. People always think it’s crazy when I say she’s bought something for herself but she has been practicing saving, sharing and spending since she was barely walking. She’s currently saving to buy me a Valentine’s gift (her idea lol)

    • That’s so sweet. People look at me crazy when they hear my kids say they paid for something. Necessities we pay for, but you want certain items we must learn a value of a dollar. You’re rocking this finance thing out!

  2. I love that Moonjar has three separate boxes for sharing, spending, and saving. Right now my son just puts everything into his wallet or piggy bank, and then pulls out whatever amount when he wants to go shopping. So he has troubles saving for bigger items, because he spends it all at one time, or he just doesn’t buy anything for a long time. I like the idea of setting aside a bit of his allowance each time to saving and spending (he already sets aside 10% for tithing). Thanks for the suggestion!

    • Yes. I love the 3 compartments. I like the idea of keeping the money separate, then they can see what they have for each area vs. spending it all in one shopping trip.

  3. I love that you had your kids research how much it was going to cost to move Carlos instead of just telling them it will cost “x” amount of dollars. I’m sure they learned so much more by knowing how all the money was being spent instead of just how much it would cost!

    • Kids tend to think money just comes from the sky. I wanted them to understand that everything has a price and the time required to gather the cost of things too. Thanks for stopping by.
