I just saw the best idea I’ve heard to save up enough money to pay for your child’s born day (some say “birthday”) party! A parent on Facebook said that they use a jar to put spare change in for the year. When it’s time to plan the party, they crack it open and find out what the budget is!
This is a great way to teach patience, goal setting, savings habits and general financial education. My little one is too young to get the gist of this, but I’ll be filing it away for later.
Do you think that you could stick to whatever budget is set by the money in the jar? Would you cheat? Lol
