The Savings Jar

I am always looking for ways to save money for myself. When you have children you find yourself spending all of your money on them. I have really wanted a nice camera for years now, so I have started the camera fund.

I took a soy butter jar (Peanut allergies at my house) and painted it with chalkboard paint.

Now every time I have change I dump it into my camera fund. I have a constant reminder on my dresser that I am saving for me.

After I save enough money I can erase it and write the next item I will be saving for.

I know it is pretty simple, but sometimes as a parent we have to remember that our wants are important too.

It is okay to treat ourselves occasionally.
