Save, Spend, and Share with Moonjar





In 2001 Eulalie Scandiuzzi, a Seattle Native, created Moonjar LLC to help teach children the financial value of saving, spending, and sharing their own money. The name Moonjar came from the idea of “Shooting for the Moon”, creating big dreams, and the ancient custom of placing hopes and dreams in a jar. Moonjar's belief is that children should be taught financial values at an early age by teaching them the practices of saving, spending, and sharing. all of Moonjar's products are made from recycled materials. 
Anniversary Edition Moonjar
I think this is a really awesome idea since I never really grasped the concept of saving my money until I was already in debt. I was always spending and sharing but never saving so I'd love for my daughter to learn some financial values before she ends up in a horrible rut like I was. I have been pretty spoiled my whole life and even though my daughter is as well, I know now what to watch for to ensure she spends her money wisely and saves her money considerably. The Moonjar will give me that extra tool to help teach her the value's of spending, saving, and sharing. 
Moonjar Sections
The Moonjar we received for the Holiday Gift Guide is their tenth anniversary Moonjar. Each metallic section has been loaded with the words "Spend, Share, and Save" in languages from around the world. The design is extremely cute while the Moonjar itself seems sturdy enough to last through the years. My daughter loves to put money in her piggy jar so of course she was just smitten by her new Moonjar. If you are looking for a good gift for a child that also has a purpose, I would highly recommend checking out Moonjar's products. They offer a few different designs to choose from and for $28.00 it's a small price to pay your child's lifetime of financial values.

  4. I love that idea, especially the sharing. My kids know to save and spend, but sharing money is a big no no with both of them already. I would love to break that habit.

  26. I started trying to teach my kids at 3 or 4 but they really did not start understanding until about age 5. It is still a challenging process even now 4 years later.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think you can teach them about savings whenever they're able to grasp the concept, which seems to be at about the age of four. I remember being really little and hunting around the home for stray nickels! :P

  28. As soon as they can say daddy buy me that!

  29. As soon as they understand the concept of money

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…
