Old ChestTo begin teaching the value of thriftiness to your kids, start a hope chest for them. Instead of tossing things out to the garage sale, you can imprint in their minds and hearts, that they have a future, and home development, cooking, and saving, are in their control now.

Instead of tossing out an old teacup and saucer, wrap it up and give it to your child for their Hope Chest. When you purchase new tools for the kitchen, give the used item to your child to save. Children enjoy cooking and sewing, and planning for the future, with small concrete items and ideas within their reach.

I started a hope chest for each of my sons when they were twelve. Now if they don't marry immediately upon leaving home,they will have a lot of things they will need for their home.
