Tuesday's "TIP"...

HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE!!! It's "TIP DAY" at According to Lala...

When our son Nick (19) was little he LOVED to drop the coins into the "bellringers" pot at this time of year... and Lilley-Kate has picked up the "tradition"... in order to "budget" (and teach the kids about money) I allot a ROLL of coins after Thanksgiving... and each time we happen upon a "bellringer" (or any donation container that is noticed)... a coin is taken from the roll and deposited into the pot... once all the coins are gone from the roll "they" have reached their donation "limit"...

So give each one of your kids a roll of coins... and let them experience the "gift of giving"...
