How much money do you set aside for your child?
Do you set aside a certain amount? Whatever you can put away at payday? How often and how much do you set aside? Do you have certain goals that you want to stick to? Or do you not deal with it at all?
For us, I put whatever falls in the laundry in a piggy bank. Also, when Charlie outgrows anything I sell them and put it in a "Charlie Bux" envelope on the fridge. We have yet to open a bank account for him because we were waiting for his ss card and then just got lazy about it. I plan on putting $50 a month from what I make into his account. We haven't discussed actual figures from my bf's account, but I know he'll be able to contribute a lot more than I do. What about you?
Money in the bank is for college.
