Classic Moonjar Moneybox Review and Giveaway! - CLOSED!





I have been trying to teach my children that money doesn't grow on trees and that everything costs money. I have started to give Bella a small allowance for helping with chores around the house. Now she saves up her money until she has enough to buy a small toy at the store. I would like her to save her money for longer and bigger purchases and give some of her money to charity. A great product to help teach her about where her money should go is called the Moonjar Moneybox!

I received a Classic Moonjar Moneybox to review! This is a great item to teach your children about where their money should go. It has separate compartments for Spend, Share and Save. Bella brought me all of her money and we started putting different amounts into her Moonjar Moneybox. It has really helped her to set goals for what she'd like to do with her money. For instance, she would like to donate money to her school for various things. Recently they had a March of Dimes fundraiser where the class that raised the most money would receive a pizza party. I sent in some money for her to contribute. Now that she is learning the importance of giving to others, she wants to give some of her allowance and I think the Moonjar Moneybox is a great tool for her to reach her saving and sharing goals!


About Moonjar



Our Story



Moonjar LLC was established in 2001 by Eulalie Scandiuzzi, a Seattle native, to inspire and incorporate strong financial values and practices into everyday life.



The name Moonjar comes from the idea of “Shooting for the Moon” and creating Big Dreams, along with the ancient custom of placing hopes and dreams in a jar.



Today Moonjar is a vibrant young company working to bring financial literacy to children and families around the globe. We believe the time to start the conversation about money is now and the way to start the conversation is through Saving, Spending and Sharing.
