Good Savings Habits Start at Home!

Submitted by Kate Mielitz--GRA Extension

Small savings jars

Good savings habits start at home. Whether you’re budgeting, saving, making retirement decisions, or assessing work-place benefits, share the choices you make with your children, no matter their age.

Allow children to help find ways to save! Child age-appropriate activities may include:

  •  Cutting out coupons.
  •  Looking for price differences at the store.
  •  Helping choose a vacation spot.
  •  Helping to cook at home, rather than dining out.
  •  Helping to choose a free entertainment activity (park, library, family walk, dance party with the whole family)

America Saves Week is February 27- March 4! Commit to a family savings plan! What are you saving for? Share your savings goals and you could win!
