With Christmas just around the corner, it’s a great time for another freebie.  Brent, from Moonjar Canada, is on a mission to get the word out to financial enthusiasts and has offered MDJ readers another chance to win the Moonjar Family package.

Moonjar “Family” Package

Last year, we did a giveaway of the Moonjar which created quite the buzz.  What is The Moonjar? It’s a new age piggy bank that can help teach children about money by separating spending, saving, and sharing money. With the popularity of the previous Moonjar giveaway, the Canadian Moonjar distributor has again offered the Moonjar Family Package to Million Dollar Journey readers (~$100 value).

What’s included in the Moonjar Family Package?

  1. Classic Moonjar (x2) – As seen in the picture above.  The different sections represents a purpose for the money saved – saving, spending, sharing. You can read more about it in my Moonjar Review.
  2. Conversation to Go Money game – Put the curious conversation about money on the table with these 100 open-ended questions. Share your dreams, lend your thoughts. An experience for the whole family.
  3. Noom & Raj Start a Business (Hardcover) – Meet Noom and Raj (that’s Moon and Jar backwards!). They want to start a business – a lemonade stand. Follow them through this fun adventure where they learn all about money words – Saving, Spending and Sharing with their Moonjar.

    I learned how to save money from my parents.

    My parents always told me to save everything as a child.. and also spend wisely when necessary.

    My parents started our bank accounts when we were infants. Mom would take us to the bank whenever we had money to deposit, she would show us the interest board and explain what it meant, and she would help us fill out the deposit slips. When they invested some of our money in mutual funds, we would check the financial section in the paper to see the current fund values were.

    I did not manage my money well until I got out of school and realized I needed to start saving for the future… Let’s say that my parents were not financially well-educated.

    I learned to take care of what I have and spend wisely from my mom. From my dad, I learned to just spend! I follow you on Twitter (jentamar)

    I learned about money (and the lack thereof) as a child. Sadly, neither my DH nor step-daughters did. I would love the moonjar so that I can start my 1 year old grandson on a firm financial footing.

    From my dad I learned to work to earn my $. Always had part-time jobs as a teen and saved for the future.

    My family mostly kept the finances away from “the children”. Their primary focus was that the children were to focus on school and we weren’t really able to even get jobs. The only primary lesson that they taught us was that saving is a good thing and so my financial education started there.
