This inspired another idea- use small plastic food containers with cut slots in the lid. Label them "save", "spend", and "share" (meaning charity). Then assign a certain percentage of their allowance to each jar. If you decorate them, like shown, they are pretty enough to keep on a dresser or shelf, and are stackable too. Lids pop off, making accessing the money easy too

When you paint a room, put some extra paint in a baby jar* and keep it handy for quick touch-ups. pinner said *I did this Aug. 2011 - don't use a baby food jar - use a peanut butter jar that has a PLASTIC lid or it will rust - that was a tip from my painter - it's all stored in a cabinet in the house - just take it out and shake well and use a q-tip for quick touch ups. This has got to be one of the best things I've ever pinned!!!!
