Giveaway: The Munny Journey: Keepsake Journal for Baby's First Money


Giveaway Closed
The Munny Journey is a wonderful gift for any newborn or infant. This new journal shows how you can give one of the greatest gifts of all - a financially secure future for your little one.

Against a backdrop of economic uncertainty, rising home foreclosures, record gas prices and falling stocks one veteran financial advisor has some great news - it is possible to set your newborn up to be a millionaire for just a dollar a day.

The Munny Journey is a keepsake journal for Baby's First Money. Modeled after a traditional baby book it contains pages to record money "firsts", such as baby's first dollar, first savings account and first investment. The journal also serves as an educational tool - teaching your child about saving and investing and illustrating the magic of compound interest and how it can create wealth.

We LOVE this journal and think it is a great 'investment' for your child's future. The journal can be purchased at
Munny Journey.

GIVEAWAY: One lucky Trendy Mommy reader will win this fabulous journal! So go visit the Munny Journey site and leave us an insightful comment (none of the "I want to win" or other silly like that comments). One winner will be selected on November 1st. Winner will be posted on www.TheTrendyMommy.com. Good luck!!

I think this is a super idea. If nothing else, it's a good reminder to parents to start and continue working towards establishing some type of account to help the kids pay for college. The munny mountain chart would be fun to watch grow. It's a great gift idea too.

That's really amazing to learn that a dollar a day, if saved and invested, can grow to a million dollars by age 65. Very unique and important gift.

bocktalk said...

my parents started a savings account for me when i was a baby and i put money in at every holiday when i got cash. i was so proud when i was able to by my own car with my own money!

Jessica said...

Huh. That's a pretty good idea. My parents never taught me about money. Retirement? Savings? Investments? Not a clue. Well, of course I understand most of it now, but I had to figure it out on my own. And much later than I care to admit.

Maybe this should be required reading, right along with Green Eggs and Ham!

wow, my husband (an econ kinda guy) would love this. he made sure to get DS baby's 1st piggy bank, and this is along those lines!

judybrittle said...

This is a wonderful idea. I am learning everyday how uncertain finances can be. I thought we were set for life that is until my husband lost his job. Now its downhill. I do not want that for any of my grandchildren. Thank you for this chance.

This is neat! I really want to teach my children early on about money and how to save. We are not on track at all for savings for our children, but this would help use get on track and encourage us.

karen and co. said...

I think we all want to save money for our kids' future but are often overwhelmed by the idea and how to start. This is a great idea to help us start now.

piece of me said...

I like the fact that if your child is past the newborn stage you can still get to the million dollars. You just have to find your "number".

I'm a firm believer in saving money and stretching the dollar. I'd love to instill the same attitude with my son.

This is soo wonderful. My husband and I have dug ourselves out of $65K in debt over the last year, and I hope my daughters will never have to go through that. Our parents never sat down and taught us how to be financially responsible, and shirk credit cards, and we want to give our daughters much more knowledge than we had. This would be such a great start!
Thanks for the give-away!

This journal is such a great idea! Not only is it something to look back on, it also gives something to look forward to!

Lori said...

With the insanity of the economic crisis, this is such a great idea.

Peggy said...

Gosh could we use this! What I like about it too is that our two older daughters could all figure it out together. We know NOTHING about money!! It's as though I'm allergic to it. Considering how little stuff we have, it's disturbing that we don't have any real savings. I need to learn about money in a non intimidating way. PIck me!

Xenia S said...

I'm having our second baby next month and would love this. I remember at the shower for my first child I got the requisite amount of tiny clothes and receiving blankets that were hardly used and to think that the money could have gone towards savings. This is a much better way to start off a child's life.

Thanks!
