It's never too early to start on the path to saving money. In these tough economic times, families are tightening their budgets like never before. With unemployment being so high, there is probably one parent in the household who is not working. I am sure parents are explaining to their children that the family has to cut back on some of the extras such as expanded cable to basic.
If you are able to give your children an allowance, ask them to pitch in some of their money to buy the new video game, music CD, clothing item, etc. they want to purchase. I believe that when kids contribute to their must-haves, they appreciate the item more. Remember, Frugal Rocks!
