I'm off to the mall (again) today to continue what my daughters do not realize is a lifelong search for the perfect jeans, or as some of my Texas neighbors would call them, "Janes." (Yes, in my inventory of closets this week, I was not happy to realize ALL of them have outgrown theirs from last year. Ugh.)
In the meantime, here's a great post by my new friend Julie at 3cookieday. She has the cutest little girl, Emma, and wins points for getting her husband "K" to guest blog for her! (The only time Dennis has blogged here was when he hijacked it!).
"K" shares how his parents taught him how to manage money at a very young age in this post: Get Smart (With Money). It is truly inspiring! (You can read others' really great ideas in the comments section on my post here - thanks for sharing!).
We are still working out our allowance system here. Since I have savings accounts set up for the older three, I am going to do an automatic transfer every month. That way they don't have to be accusing me of "forgetting" or "delaying," as I've been so bad about doing in times past. We have roughly mapped out what each one should "need," and how much money they should save, etc. Will keep you posted.
So off I go. Although I am not a shopper, I am thankful I'm going with my girls for jeans this time, and not for swimsuits, which in my book, ranks somewhere around having a root canal without happy gas.
