F.O.A.D.: Glass jar idea #4

#4 Fun Fund

My husband and I have a "fun fund". Each paycheck, we set aside a certain percentage that goes into our "fun fund". That means that any money that is on our "fun fund" can be used for fun things. We have used our "fun fund" for traveling, bigger purchases, outings or anything that is extra. It has taught us to save for fun things and helps us appreciate them more.

You could start your own fun fund with a glass jar. Start collecting your spare change in the jar and see it fill up. I could see kids getting really into this. Then use your fun fund for a trip to the ice cream shop, a new movies, or a trip.
