    Cashing up
     


    If only I'd grown up with My Learning ATM from Family Christian Stores then I'm sure I'd be far better with my money than I am today.

    "Use a modern, familiar tool to teach traditional, old fashion values to the youngster in your home!" [thanks to The Wittenburg Door for the tip-off]. Family Christian Stores suggest that if I spent just $31.99 on My Learning ATM (Usually ships within 24-48 hours) I'd begin to account better. I'm not so sure.

    Tonight we got together as an Iona Community Family Group to do our annual accounting to each other for our use of money. It was salutory, for me. I pay my way, charitably. But I take a lot more than others do, and spend a lot on my own leisure pursuits. Could do with some wealth redistribution. Toy machines - or any other gimmick - won't change my attitude to money. But spending time with others talking seriously about it probably will.
