We are onto something new and exciting in my house and I promise to provide updates! It was all Mike’s idea, and we have started a family saving project.
We will be taking all of the cash refund from our bottle depot returns and putting them into a jar (I just need to find a big one!) for at least 6 months – 1 year – this is still a work in progress idea, and at the end we will count it all and use it for a family getaway; depending on how much there is: a night in a hotel, gas for a day trip or weekend trip 🙂
While we are doing this project, we’re also talking to the boys about how small amounts of money saved add up over time and how to pay attention to money being saved, as well as how to budget the money once it’s earned.
Is there a way that you can find money in your budget to create a family savings project and get excited about putting money aside for a goal?
