Saving up and growing together should be part of a family's mission. Families need to know what practical things they need to be able to save up as a family.

 Sit and talk about purchases

Before heading to the grocery or when the budget for the month arrives, it would be practical to sit down as a family and talk about what needs to be paid such as bills, and what needs to be bought such as groceries and household items.

If parents are able to explain to children properly why they cannot buy a new toy, gadget, or extra snacks and what are the consequences if they purchase out of budget, children will be able to understand. More importantly, children will learn the value of money and learn to be responsible with their purchases.

Stick to the plan 

Once the budget and what needs to be paid have been set, all the members of the family should be responsible to stick to it and the plan. If there are other things that a family member wants to buy or order, all the members of the family should agree to it, to make sure that each purchase will be practical.

 Buy things that will benefit the whole household 

One of the most practical purchases are those that will help benefit the whole household. An example of this would be a family car, where all the members can fit. This will allow the entire household to travel together or take turns in using the car for errands or personal travel time.

Being able to go to places conveniently and safely is important, it also saves time and energy when members of the family need to get to work.

With its Active Stability Control (ASC) it remains stable on slippery roads and while turning, to help prevent skidding. It is also equipped with a Hill Start Assist (HSA) that makes driving on steep slopes safe and easy, while its Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) prevents wheels from locking up during emergency brakes which maintains steering control even on slippery roads.

To keep other motorists safe, the New Xpander is also equipped with Emergency Stop Signal System (ESS) which automatically flashes the hazard light when the driver comes to a sudden brake. This helps reduce the possibility of rear-end collisions.
