Money Savvy Pig

piggy_bankI won this one-of-a-kind piggy bank from a giveaway over at Jessica Knows during her Better Budgeting series. It is from Money Savvy Generation. There are 4 chambers: save, spend, donate, and invest. We just won the bank, but for the older kids there is a curriculum that teaches them about what they can do with their money. Especially during a time like this, it’s important that kids understand more about money. Melody is, of course, a little young to really understand the 4 chambers, but she likes to put the coins in. We gave her a few choices for each one and she “chose” to save for a camera, spend on a book, donate to Operation Christmas Child, and invest for college. As she grows up, I hope she will learn more about how to be a good steward of money.

They also have a football and cow too!
