When you decide to make a purchase, place importance on the things you really need and avoid spending your money on unnecessary things.

This week, don’t spend all
your money on candy.
Instead, save it in a piggy
bank (or AgentPiggy)
to reach your goal.

When you receive money, make sure to save some of it. If you don’t spend it, you will have more tomorrow!

Save the leftover change
whenever you buy something
with your own money. That small amount of money will help you buy something of greater value.

Ask your parents or a
relative to do small challenges
to earn money. These activities
can be walking the dog, washing
your dad’s car,or washing
the dishes.
