Money Savvy Piggy Bank Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Winner - #12  Claudia




My little girl is only three years old but she is already starting to understand the concept of money. Whenever we go out shopping she always asks us if we have money for things like candy, toys and of course horsey rides. A few months ago we decided to get her a piggy bank so that she could start filling it with change from our shopping trips. I told her that the money in her bank was for her to save for something special and of course she loved the idea. Then just a few weeks ago I came across what I thought would be the perfect replacement for the small traditional ceramic piggy bank we got her, The Money Savvy Piggy Bank. As soon as I saw this new piggy bank I knew we would love it. Not only do I not have to worry about her breaking it but it is clear plastic so she can actually see her money collecting. But...that's not the best thing about this new generation of piggy banks. The Money Savvy Piggy Bank has four chambers, Save, Spend, Donate and Invest. What a great way to teach a child about money management!


Being a personal banker Founder and CEO of Money Savvy Generation, Susan Beacham  saw the difficulties adults had with basic concepts of personal finance. Along with her husband they set out to teach elementary school aged children money management skills in hopes that they could instill good financial habits before the bad ones set in. Starting on a volunteer basis they went into schools and taught  "Mrs. Money Talks Money" an eight week curriculum in local schools. WOW! Since then the Money Savvy Kids Basic Personal Finance Curriculum is now taught in one or more districts in 26 states and The Money Savvy Piggy Bank has been sold worldwide.

I truly believe this is a great product for any child. It is important to teach your children skills while they are still young that help them into adulthood. Whether those be healthy eating habits, social skills or money management. While my little girl might be a little too young to fully understand the concepts of donating and investing. I think this bank is a great tool that I can use to continue to teach her the importance of being financially responsible. It's also so much fun for her! She loves filling her bank with change for "saving for the future", "buying toys or candy", "giving to others in need", and "saving up for family time". The Money Savvy Piggy Bank comes in several colors and retails for only $16.99. Visit Money Savvy Generation to purchase one today. You can also check out a variety of other products aimed at helping children, teens and even adults with their finances.
