A Day at Dollar General
National Center for Families Learning and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation have teamed up to educate families about money management through "A Day at Dollar General: Learn While Shopping." The online interactive game makes it fun and educational for both children and parents to learn basic budgeting skills.
The easy-to-use game helps families start the conversation about money management and is a great tool for parents and children to learn together about how to make smart choices with money. Through the virtual experience of shopping in a Dollar General store, families will learn how to budget, plan a shopping trip, spend wisely and manage money.
