Kids & Money: 3 Tips to Teach Kids to Save Money for What They Want!

One of the things I do at the end of each month is review my spending. As my child grows, I'm looking at teaching her how to save in three simple steps: 

  • Start off with a piggy bank with an easy-to-count sum, like $50. 
  • Create a money chart with items the child wants and will pay for out of this sum, like ice cream, books and toys. 
  • Track the money at the end of the month and let the savings go into the bank. Next month is a fresh $50. 

The child may earn a reward if $50 can last longer this month compared to the preceding month, which encourages the child to save more!
