Looking for tips on saving? We know that getting kids to save money, rather than spend it, can be rather big a challenge. Here are three quick tips you can start to encourage saving with the kid in your life:
- Lead by Example- Kids are always watching and they learn from example. Talk about saving or budgeting in your everyday life. Bring them with you to the credit union so they can see you saving money. When they see saving as a norm, then it just becomes second nature to them.
- Start a Savings Plan- Has your kid been asking for a new video game, cellphone or some other item? Sit down with them and discuss how much that item costs and create a savings plan to show how much they must save per week or month to earn it. Create a fun chart like this one to help track their progress!
- Match Their Savings- Just like how adults get excited when their employers match their retirement savings, your kids will be motivated by the potential to double their money
