I feel so much better now that I have some savings in the bank
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2010
Personal finance can be fun, thanks to The Frugality Game™, a free, online adventure with education and tools for saving and budgeting. A new version launched this week.
"The Frugality Game™ combines the fun of games with powerful financial tools and learning to create a unique experience," says Joanne Garneau, founder of TFG, Inc. and the game's creator. "We created The Frugality Game™ to promote better financial habits and educate people about money. It's more than a game: it's a real-life challenge."
The experience follows the fictional Frugal family on treasure-hunting adventures around the world. Along the way, adventurers learn about their real-world finances and unlock tools to create budgets and track spending. There's even a $50,000 grand prize (official prize rules can be found here).
"I feel so much better now that I have some savings in the bank," says Esmeralda Cisneros, who uses The Frugality Game™ to manage her family's finances. "I even spend more time with my family--instead of spending money on fast food, we cook and eat together, then save the leftovers for lunches."
