In continuation of learning about Financial Literacy for #FinancialLiteracyMonth, the girls worked on money principles and specifically the value of money.
Knowing the difference between wants and needs is a major step in becoming financially disciplined. Our troop will work on these financial principles continually throughout their girl scout years while earning dedicated Financial Literacy badges designed to simulate real-life situations, ensuring girls are poised to budget, save, and spend like a BOSS!
The girls discussed how they want to use their cookie sale money. The results are in:
- Horseback Riding
- Skating Party
We are currently planning a shopping tripto teach girls how to spend. They will be using funds from their cookie money earnings to fund this shopping trip. The girls will be buying items for our philanthropy work, specifically making the world a better place.
Daisy – Money Counts Leaf
Daisies worked on the Money Counts leaf which teaches them more about money and what it is worth.
Brownie – Money Manager
Brownies began working on the the Money Manager badge which teaches them how to spend money wisely.
Junior – Business Owner
Juniors began working on the Business Owner badge which teaches them the basic steps of how to plan and create a new business.
The girls discussed activities that were free and those that cost money. We shared activities that cost money that could be free or be found at a reduced cost with coupons.

Activities that can be free or at a reduced cost –
Things the girls can work on at home
Take a trip to the store. Have your girl choose and pay for a few items. This will help her understand the cost of things she wants or needs.
