We had piggy banks growing up and so did my kids...mostly because they were cute.
I tried to emphasize saving to my kids, but some were and are better than others. Kara boasts about how many credit cards she has...I got rid of most f mine....but Randy really watches how much goes out. LOL!
I saved all denominations and coins when I was growing up and these days I try to have $50's for my nail appointments and the groomer. When Josh was doing out yards I kept 5s and 20s so I could pay him weekly. Now I try to have ones so I have them for AA meetings.
I save for taxes...car and house and insurance. I was able to put down a substantial amount for my car and then paid three payments each month, so I had it paid off in a year. I really like to plan for the unexpected or the grandkids. I probably will be doing money for Christmas, so I am saving for that. I send money to the college kids as often as I can.
