Save It! by Cinders McLeod

This is my favorite book in the series and the books can be read in any order.  Honey gets 2 carrots a week for watching her siblings and she wants a quiet playhouse of her own.  She can afford one in 5 weeks if she just saves, but then she can’t use her money to do fun things like buy ice cream.  She decides to spend 1 carrot a week and save 1 carrot a week and in 10 weeks she gets her fabulous playhouse delivery.
