Make More Cents Review and Giveaway

THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES. CONTEST HAS ENDED, WINNER WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY

Are you so insanely wealthy that your kids will never have to worry about money?  If you were I seriously doubt you'd be reading this...you should be sailing some crystal blue sea!
So since you're here I'll presume that, like our family, you want to teach your children the value of money.  And at MakeMoreCents you'll find many items to help everyone in the family learn about saving money.  They have many items including books and software.  But my favorite, especially for my kids ages are the banks.  We recieved the Zillionz Digital Counting Money Jar.  It's perfect for kids, or adults, to save their change in.  I know that at different ages my kids went through stages where it was sort of a struggle to get them to let go of a coin and actually put it IN a bank.  They want to play with it, look at it and keep it in their pocket.  Ad of course one more than one occasion this meant it ended up lost.  This "bank" helps with that because it makes it fun to put the money in.  I think this bank would be especially nice if you have a specific savings goal.  For instance if you're kids are saving up for a specific toy and you figure out how much they'll need (don't forget to factor in tax) and they can always see how close they are.  If you have a child, who like Timmy is learning about currency in school you could use this to help practice that skill too.

Now for the down side of this jar...no sneaking money from the jar.  Well maybe it's not a down side if you're keeping the kids from sneaking but I have to confess that there have been times when we've had to borrow a couple dollars from the kids.  If you do that with jar and don't put it back...you will eventually be found out :)

  1. M just got one of these for her birthday! I think it's pretty cool too. Too bad there's no way for it to count bills. I like how simple it is to use, I think J needs one too.

  15. I think the Zillionz Digital Counting Money Jar would be fun for my girls to watch how saving money adds up. They have "pretty piggy" type ones from nana & pop-pop but the digital is more practical.

  16. my little guy is definitely in the phase where he doesn't want to let go of "my monies" LOL I think he would enjoy the EZ-Count Money Jar Digital Coin Counter - we borrowed something similar from my MIL/FIL & he absolutely LOVED watching it sort the $$.
    thanks!
