A Little About Make More Cents!

Make More Cents is a company that believes and understands the importance of encouraging children to learn to save early and often. With the company goal to encourage and develop money-savvy kids and money-wise adults. They have created services, tips and a blog to help you reach your goal.

Founded by business entrepreneur and retail expert, Chris Hayman. Chris began Make More Cents out of his passion for saving early and often and his belief that every penny counts.  He feels that saving money is a process, and if taught and encouraged at a young age, can be fun and lead to a life of financial security, even in today’s environment.

Make More Cents offers a variety of products, providing practical and fun tools that encourage the importance of saving money.  Make More Cents empowers parents to teach their children the value of saving. They learn skills such as money management, disciplin and goal setting, which translates into prudent spending habits and productive financial lives.**

IE MOMMY SAYS:

From the moment I met Chris and learned of his company I was in love with the philosophy. Growing up… I do not recall a moment where someone sat me down and explained the “value” of money. I remember being told to “save it”,  “not to spend it all”, or “don’t blow it on one thing”…but never did an adult sit down with me to explain the concept of saving. Saving seemed boring! Why would I want to wait for that “BIG” toy when I could get two little toys NOW!

When we had the twins we vowed that we would not do the same thing. We wanted them to understand the importance of saving, tithing and enjoying their money. That it was all possible and within their budgets.

My twins were ecstatic when the were given the opportunity to review the Zillionz Digital Counting Money Jar and instantly raided all their “regular” banks, purses and pockets gathering up all their change. Their grand total for one day..$24.67!

From not having any money to “finding” coins through out the house…they came up with almost $25.00! They were excited. They enjoyed seeing the bank count the money.  As a home school family this was a wonderful way to illustrate the lessons they had been learning with simple addition and recognition of coins.

Their latest total: $54.88! Every penny they find they rush to put it into their Zillions Digital Counting Money Jar.  I like the fact that this little jar and a little instruction from mommy and daddy has increased their desire to save their money. Before…they didn’t really understand how the coins added up to dollars. After all, didn’t Mom and Dad just write a check or use the little card thingy? Now, they are seeing it add up, they are visually witnessing it multiply…and they are having a blast doing it!

They don’t want to use real coins for their pretend cash registers or put it in their pink Minnie Mouse purse any longer…now they want it to go straight to the ZDC Money Jar! When they reach $100…I’ll let them spend a little but then we are going straight to the bank. There they will learn how to open a savings account. I am sure this is just the beginning of their little operation. There are already whispers of opening a lemonade stand this summer so their bank account can grow!
