Hilarious Money Saving Tips From Children
Now, ever child sees money differently…but they all know one thing for certain. They have some great ideas on ways to save money. I took the liberty of asking my kids and some of their friends about simple ways that adults could save money, and
Just stop spending money.
I like it…plain and simple and pretty straight forward, right? Well, besides the part of having to pay bills and stuff…
Hide your money so you can’t find it to spend it.
Genius. Truthfully, that really would work. If I hide all my money, there’s no way that I’ll remember where I put it..and if I can’t remember where I put it then there’s no way that I’ll be able to spend it. I feel my savings adding up already.
Give yourself an allowance.
This is spot on. We all tend to spend a bit freely when we don’t have a reason not to, right? A monthly or even a weekly allowance isn’t a bad idea at all.
Donate to charity what you were going to spend.
I like this a lot. While I would technically be spending money at least it would be going somewhere where it could help and make a difference.
Skip going to work so you aren’t making money to spend.
While I see the logic in that…I don’t think that’s a long term solution for me. But I do appreciate the want for working less!
