Works For Me Wednesday

This is my first WFMW post. :o)
Wondering what I could post about, I thought of 'March Break'. In March we'll take a week off from homeschooling. Sometimes we just hang out at home or get together with friends. This can sometimes this can mean extra $$.
So, this year I am encouraging our son to think ahead and save his money. I will gently remind him that he may want to do some fun things that week and he will need the money to do it. Also, to be sure that I am saving for it too I will give him some of my spare change to add to the piggy bank. Since I'm giving it to him to 'save', I won't spend it in the meantime. ;o)
By planning ahead now, we will 'have some funds to have some fun' when March gets here and, I won't have to worry about him missing out.

Good tip. I like that idea of teaching them how to save and also the gentle reminders. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to reading next week's tip.
