Setting Max Up On a Budget

We have upgraded the way we are doing our budget by using a software called You Need A Budget (YNAB).  We figured this would be a good time to teach Max how to budget also. Momma made him three piggy banks for his money.  One is for his tithe to God, one is for saving and the last one is for spending.  Max earns his money by doing a few Max friendly jobs around the house such as putting away the silverware and cleaning door handles. Here is a link to the YNAB software that will allow you to save $6 dollars while allowing us to earn $6 dollars if you choose to purchase it. There are 8 pics...
