CLOSED: Zillionz Digital Counting Money Jar Review and Giveaway (BTSC- Day 9)


The winner for the giveaway has been chosen by Random.org and is announced on this post.


Benjamin Franklin knew what he was talking about when he said "A penny saved is a penny earned" and in today's world of 'spend spend spend, live for today, tomorrow is another day" approach, saving sadly is a concept many people struggle with.

Sadly a few parents think saving starts once their child grows up and starts to work. MYTH! If you give your child everything he sets his eyes upon, you will be bringing up a spoilt child who has no value for money (ouch, that hurts but then that's the truth!) A saving habit needs to start young and you will realize the time you have spent teaching your child to save will only be an investment into his/her life.

Chris Hayman, the founder of Make More Cents feels that "saving money is a process, and if taught and encouraged at a young age, can be fun and lead to a life of financial security, even in today’s environment." Chris founded Make More Cents out of his childhood passion to save and strongly believes that every penny counts.

Chris acknowledges that saving is not easy (especially if you are trying to teach your child to save a penny that he wants to spend on a nice bag of candy.) and firmly propogates the fun way to do it......get him/her a Zillionz Digital Counting Money Jar!

This is such a neat product. Your struggles of having to count your pile of short change are over. Put a coin at a time into the jar and watch the little digital screen record each cent that goes in. The total value of coins in the jar stays displayed on the screen till you empty your jar and start the process all over again. (Honestly I think all stores should have one of these at their Customer Service counters. I pity the CSR's who have to count all those pennies when handed in!)

We told Bunny girl she could save all the coins in the jar to buy a Disney Princess anything when the jar was stocked with coins. She listened carefully and put in her first few coins and placed the jar on the dresser in her room. Later on that day I heard the jingle jangle of coins and went in to check what she was doing. There sat my little 'Savings Princess' on the carpet, with her Money jar in front of her and my bowl of laundry change next to the jar. There she was feeding all my precious laundry change into her growing pile of change in the jar! Oh well....I guess we need to wait till she is a little older to really understand the concept. ;>


Buy it:

I love that the Zillionz Money Jar is not an expensive product to buy for any child. At a reduced price of 9.95$ on the Make More Cents site, its an affordable gift that's educative and fun!


Win it:

One reader will get to own their very own Zillionz Money Jar

I learned this neat tip from a blog reader: “For my younger children I always pay their allowance in small change. If I give them dollars they would want to spend it faster but with small change they tend to hold on to it longer and they get so excited when they shake their banks thinking with all that change they are rich.”

I'll have to try that. ;-)

oooh I totally love that jar. I liked how he said that entertainment costs can be curbed by simply cutting back... it's more important the TIME spent together.
we've had to do a lot of that.
We enjoy the drive in movies in stead of the theater. We can ALL go. and it's totally cheaper.. and adds a whole bunch of nostalgia to the whole outing. :)

my tip would be to use the dollar store for small items. if your child wants a toy, maybe go there and get a little doll or coloring book to celebrate something but it won't break the bank.

My best money saving tip is to stockpile when you can get items for super cheap or free. It takes a while to build up a good one, but it's so worth it.

My best money-saving tip has been our change jar. I set it up so that as soon as I get home I throw all my change in it. I put all of my nickels and pennies into my sons bank and all the quarters and dimes into our big jars. If I've got a few bills left on payday, I usually dump those in there too. The savings really starts to add up, and it makes me feel good to be able to see it happening.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I like this line.When teaching money management skills to our kids, we should be more pragmatic and help them understand that a rainy day fund is a necessity, not a nice to have.
Trust me I know that statement all too well. Because I was diagnosed with a health issue and it was only because I saved that things are not as bad as they could have been had I not.

 
At August 11, 2009 at 9:19 PM , Blogger Bettina said...

Use shopping trips and coupon clipping as opportunities to talk to your kids about finances.

That statement is great for me with my older kids. I shop a lot without them, but the next time they go, I'm going to make extra time to go over things with them.

My best strategy for saving money - Wait 24-48 hours before purchasing the item. If I really really need it and still want it 2 or 3 days later than I get it. I sometimes find that I really didn't need it.

Ages 3 - 5
As they learn to count, teach them the difference between pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Playing “store” with children, using real change to buy things, is a fun way to teach them the value of the coins.
My grandson turns 3 next month. This will be great for him.

My best moneysaving memory was when I was about 13 - I had worn glasses since 4th grade and the lenses kept getting thicker every year. I was tired of them and wanted contacts but my parents told me I would have to save up and buy them myself. So I got a job and saved every penny to afford the exam and the first round of contacts. I've been wearing them ever since!

If I want something thats in trend, and will probably not be popular in the longhaul, I buy it cheap, or use something I already have to make it. For instance, paint splattered jeans are in. This morning, I did my own!

My best money saving tip for children is this:
If my daughter sees something at the store that she wants, I make her wait for 2 days. I ask her to calculate the cost, her allowance and extra chores she can do to buy it. If she still wants it and has the money, I'll take back to the store so she can buy it. Funny, sometimes she slaves away for something, other times she's decides it's not worth it.

What a fun jar! One of my favorite money saving tips is to always search on the internet for discounts or coupons before going out to dinner, shopping, or ordering things online. You can often find dinner specials or B1G1Free coupons for dinner, free shipping codes, free products with purchase, etc items!! So remember to look.

Thanks so much!

I learned about how it is important to introduce the concept of “needs vs. wants” with your 3 - 5 year old. Talk with your kids about prioritizing the things they need versus things they would like to have. Definitely important!

When teaching money management skills to our kids, we should be more pragmatic and help them understand that a rainy day fund is a necessity, not a nice to have.

We have a Save, Spend or Give jars for our children. They divide their commission $ every week. I love that my eldest is saving for a digitial camera or a car. For my younger ones, we have a clear jar that they can see. It works great!

Their job lists are on the fridge and Daddy has to mark them off. He also handles the payouts. :)

I buy coupons for items we use on a regular bases in bulk (10-20 at a time). I know buy coupons? But today for example I spent less than $4 and will save over $40 when I use the coupons!

I found the " Spend, Save and Share Banks" very interesting, these coin banks have separate compartments so that children can allocate money to save, spend or share, while learning to make life choices.

Buy kids clothes at garage sales! It's amazing how inexpensively you can outfit your kids if you're buying gently used stuff. Just wash everything and put it in their drawers. Most of the time they are excited and don't even ask where all their new stuff came from.

Chop out most of your entertainment expenses. What makes an evening or weekend special and fun are the company and the activity. Do fun, low- or no-cost things with friends like potluck meals, games, and movie rentals rather than fancy dinners out and hitting the movie theater at $25 a pop. Potential savings: another $20-$100 per week
