I am attempting to begin teaching my oldest, Noah the value of money. I think it hit me when one of his toys was carelessly broken and he commented that we had to "go buy a new one." It concerned me that he felt like he could "buy a new one" whenever the old one broke, so today I purchased the money savvy pig. The money savvy pig is a tool that is designed to help teach young children (4-11) the value of saving, donating, spending and investing. I think is a great idea, Noah loves his piggy bank so it should make the training process easier. The Pig cost $15.99 and can be purchased at Money Savvy Generation.
I got the idea from The Simple Dollar Blog. Check it out, it is a great personal finance web site.
