Today's dare is about saving! We all want what is best for our children, so that means looking forward to their future. Today you're going to save something for them. I don't care what it is, but it isn't for something today, it is for the future.

Maybe you've always meant to open a savings account for them, today could be the day. Maybe you've always meant to add to their savings account, it could be the day for that.

Maybe it isn't about money, maybe there is something you'd really like to pass on to them someday, but you've never put it somewhere safe, today you can. It doesn't matter what you save, or how you save it, but you need to save something for their future today.

Sometimes the savings account isn't the best option financially actually, here are some thoughts on ways you can save for your child's future though: http://www.bankrate.com/finance/savi...-future-1.aspx

Share with us your thoughts on this dare!

What a great idea! A nice reminder to do something I've been meaning to do for a long time. I didn't see today's dare until way too late (it's 10:30 PM here now), but tomorrow I'll double-up on the dares.

Thanks again for putting these dares together. I don't always respond, but I'm enjoying doing them every day.
The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
For children grow up, as Iíve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
Iím rocking my baby and babies donít keep.

This is something we've been meaning to set up for a long time! Iowa has a 529 College savings plan and the paperwork has been sitting on the counter for months. We'll be doing this this week!

We did something I never thought we'd do a while ago and emptied Courtney's savings account because we were that desperate. I found it to be a less than last resort issue. I just put $20 back in it...now to get the rest of the money back in it, a little at a time.
