  • Set a savings goal: Determine what money you will need as it nears the holidays. It might be buying a gift for a family member or saving for a special outing. Having a concrete goal will help you stay focused and motivated to save.
  • Start a piggy bank: Using a fun piggy bank or even a clear jar is a great way to get your savings started. Put in money from your allowance or the change from purchases you make now. You’ll be surprised how quickly it adds up!
  • Involve the family: Encourage family members to support your savings efforts by matching your contributions or offering extra opportunities for earning money. They can even add their spare change to your piggy bank!
  • Comparison shop: Be sure to compare prices before making a purchase. Ask your parents to help you search for the best deals or find coupons or discounts to stretch your budget.
  • Consider DIY gifts: Get creative and make your own gifts! This not only saves money but also adds a personal touch to your gifts.
