Personal Finance Tip from an 8 Year Old: Don't Let Your Dog Eat Your Money

A little personal finance tip from an eight year old with a piebald dachshund who likes to shred anything within 36 inches of the floor: Don't leave your cash lying around. Put it in a bank for safe keeping.


OK, so maybe these days the probability that a bank will eat your cash actually exceeds the probability that a miniature dachshund will eat your cash, but in normal times, I think the advice is generally sound!

It is so wonderful when the kids get behind our projects! Aren't they just the best inspiration? Please tell him his drawing is great. :-)

@Michelle: Yes, they're definitely the best inspiration! (And, he appreciated your compliment - He's sporting a big smile!)
