I heard about giving your kids a clothing budget at the beginning of the school year and making them stick to it–great idea, but it didn’t really work for my kids because they wore school uniforms.
Anyway, the other day I read a tip in the Wall Street Journal that seemed absolutely brilliant. How I wish I’d thought of it when my kids were small–and it’s this:
The next time (and maybe always) when you’re out with your kids in a restaurant and they’re about to order a soft drink, ask them if they want the drink–of if they’d rather drink water and take the dollar instead.
Aye, see what I mean?
As to the dollar with my picture in it–obviously, one day I had far too much free time on my hands. Yes, there is a page where you can make your own money. Just don’t try to spend it. 🙂
