Today is already the last day of the America Saves week and it's focus is on Saving as a Family. This is one of my favorite topics, because talking about money with your kids is very important and saving together can be a fun family activity.
Did you learn what you needed to know about money as a child, from your parents, other adult role models, or school? For many Americans, that answer is no.
As we round out America Saves Week, we want you to spend time thinking about how you can instill ways to #ThinkLikeASaver in the young people in your life. After all, savings can be both tangible (like saving in a piggy bank) and intangible (like preserving energy by turning off the lights).
Meet Kellie, a military spouse, and her two children, Hannah and Rhys, as they share how they encourage their children to save.
Here are some steps you may want to take as you close out your financial check-in!
1. Take the America Saves Pledge to get support and accountability as you reach your savings goal.
2. Enter the #ImSavingFor Sweepstakes for a chance to win one of TWO $500 cash prizes.
