Saving Early

"Tyler, you should put that dollar bill somewhere important. People who have money take care of it, and you always want to know where it is."

"I'll put it here." He put it on the windowsill.

"That's not a very careful spot, kiddo. What about your treasure box upstairs?"

"It has other stuff in it."

"Well, pick a place."

He chose a 50-gallon Rubbermaid trunk on its way to the basement for storage.

"I choose this."

I'm gonna veto that. When you can measure your money in gallons, we'll open a bank account with your name on it.

Or a Roth IRA. I keep hearing on the news about parents starting Roth IRAs for their kids at age 2.
