Cost of Living 1963 VS Now

cost of livingWow! Reading how the price has change over the years on items we use everyday blows my mind. I would love to pay the 1963 prices in the AAG article today for gas #1 as My truck takes almost $150 to fill up weekly. If I were to fill my truck up on the 1963 price I would only pay $12.80. Owning my truck with gas prices from the 1963 would be well worth it. My husband pays almost half his check to drive my truck to work daily. The other price that surprised me was the price of a Big Mac at McDonalds. What were you surprised to read in the article?

Money Savvy Pig piggy bank

Money Savvy Pig piggy bankOne slot piggy banks have been around for… centuries. But the world has changed. Now we have a highly sophisticated financial system, a system whose complexity has outstripped the ability of most adults, many of whom grapple with credit card debt, even bankruptcy.

Personal finance education needs to start young. How? With the same universally loved childhood toy, the piggy bank….but with a 21st century twist! The Money Savvy Pig piggy bank has four chambers, one for each of the four money management choices a child should be taught from the time they are small. They are SAVE, SPEND, DONATE, and INVEST.

Money Savvy Pig piggy bankWhere was this Money Savvy Pig when I was younger. I like how you can see how you want to save your money. There even is stickers to help visualize what your saving your money for. My son is always wanting our change and now he can see how to save the money. The spend slot is lower than all the other slots because he is always taking change out to spend at the gas station or for the ice cream truck. This is such a great idea on how to teach your children about money. There is a few different saving bank options to chose from like the pig in a few different colors, soccer ball, cow and a football. So how will you save your money? I want to get one of the banks for hubby and I to use for our loose money instead of just throwing it in a cup on our dresser.
