The “ber” months are here, and that means the holiday season is almost here and it’s time for us to prepare for holiday shopping. All the shopping that needs to be done will stress you out if you don’t plan early. That’s why as early as now I’m planning my shopping list, and since I have three kids I’m using this opportunity to teach my kids on how to save money for the things on their wish list.

With all the new gadgets, toys, clothes out in the market, kids will surely have a lot on their holiday gift wish list. We have a rule that they can only have one gift each and the rest on their list they have to save up. So, I’m sharing you my ways on how to teach kids how to save money.

Holiday season is a good opportunity for parents to teach kids on how to save money and work for the things they wanted to have. Read my tips on how you can teach kids on how to save money.
Holiday season is a good opportunity for parents to teach kids on how to save money and work for the things they wanted to have. Read my tips on how you can teach kids on how to save money.

1 Start with a savings goal 

Ask and help them determine a realistic savings goal. Give the kids a savings journal, so they’ll map out a plan on how much they want to save every day or every week to be able to reach their goal.

2 Use a clear jar or piggy bank

A piggy bank is good, but a clear jar is better so that kids can see the progress of their savings. You can also open them a bank account where you will deposit the money every time their jar is full.

3 Give them a budget or allowance

This will teach kids responsibility on how they want to spend and save their allowance. You can also encourage them to give part of their savings to the church or a charity of their choice.

4 Teach them how to make money

This is a good chance to teach kids that they have to work for money. You can pay them for chores or show them opportunities where they can earn, just like using my favorite cashback app.

Who doesn’t want to get paid to buy things that you are already buying? 

Shop just like you normally do and bring your family and friends for a fun shopping experience.  

Earn rewards just like gift cards and even Paypal cash through Shopkick cashback app.

Shopkick makes shopping more fun for the entire family. With this FREE cashback app you can earn rewards and redeem them to get FREE gift cards or even cash via Paypal that you and your kids can use for their holiday gifts. The best part is it’s fun! It makes shopping more exciting for the whole family. It’s like scavenger hunting so your kids can help use this so you’ll earn more rewards. 

Here’s how Shopkick works:

Homemade Dog Food Recipes

It happened after 7 years hours of begging, pleading, promising, we brought home our newest family member.  We researched and we spent hours of our time trying to figure out what the best type of the puppy would be for our family.

We brought home Joy. She is so popular in our home that she has her own Instagram Our Beagle Joy.

She was a tiny bundle of energy. She bounced from person to person. She licked your face and opened the heart of even the most anti-dog person. We couldn’t just feed her what was found in a bag. We began to create homemade dog food recipes.

We found that making our own treats was a great way to save money. It also is a nice way to spend time together. I find that making food always creates memories. The best part of homemade dog food treats is once you get to know what your puppy likes you can use those ingredients in a recipe for them. I know our Beagle Joy likes almost anything that isn’t nailed down. I think that is the breed. She does tend to like things that she can chew on for a long time. I think the Kong fill recipe is one of her favorites for that very reason. She enjoys eating it. I highly suggest kong training if you haven’t heard of it. It helped us get her into her crate and stay there without whining.

These are a couple of Joy’s favorite dog food recipes. Please, share your dog’s favorite.

Fun Soccer Games For Kids

Who won? What was the score? What position does she play? What position does he play? How long are they in the game? How long did they stay in the game? Did they score? Did they get carded? Who won again?

The main problem with sports is they have become so competitive. That is why each year I send my kids to the Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp. I do it because not only are they teaching them the skills that need to practice and improve on they teach them using games.

Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp

The atmosphere is relaxed in a multi level and multiage age group. The players help one another through encouragement. They do more than build skillset they build relationships.

These are some of the fun games the players played while at the British Soccer Camp.
