Saving and Spending

What would you like to save money for? In this movie, you’ll learn about spending and saving money. You’ll explore how people have jobs and take on other responsibilities to earn money. Many people earn money by selling goods or offering services to others. Kids often do chores or help around the house to earn an allowance. Once you have some cash, it’s good to create a budget to plan how to spend and save it wisely. When you're ready to buy something, visit different stores, research prices online, find coupons, or wait until an item goes on sale. You can even find a cheaper version at a yard or garage sale. Money isn’t just about buying things you want, though. You can also donate to charity to help a person, group, or community!
