Keep those flyers! Today's challenge is to clip coupons from weekly newspaper inserts and download coupons from company websites!

Clipping coupons is an easy way to save money and it's a fun activity to get your kids involved with. Give your kids safety scissors and let them help cut out coupons. Not only will you save money, but it will be a great learning experience for your kids!

Do your kids have a piggy bank? How do you help teach them about money?

Both kids have a piggy bank and all of their money goes into it. If they want something special then they use their own money. If they don't have enough then they have to save to get there.

We have several piggy banks, but we end up turning the change in for bills when they start getting full. They keep their money in a wallet. They've asked to spend it, but I haven't let them.
