About once a week, I gather my guys and I share whatʼs on sale so that we can work together and figure out everything we need. Itʼs a great lesson in budgeting and helps them see that shopping the sales means more money in your pocket. They learn that saving money on the things you need means more money for the other things that you might want.
Plus, they learn that patience and timing can be very important in financial decisions.
My guys are teenagers now and are both much more concerned with their physical appearance than they once were. When they were little, soap, toothpaste and shampoo were really all they needed. Now, they use shampoo, conditioner, styling products, deodorant, body washes, body sprays, lotions, creams…you name it. While I am happy to provide them with those personal care items, I want them to learn that they are not free and a little planning means you can have what you need when you need it.
But, sometimes lessons are hard…
My oldest kiddo is notorious for finishing off a product and then letting me know that he needs more. I have tried to explain that giving me a heads up allows me time to get the product while it’s on sale. That way he gets what he needs and I save money. So now when he waits until the last minute, he has to suck it up and be without until a sale happens OR he can get what he wants—but, he has to spend his own money and pay full price.
Funny…come to think about it, he hasn’t run out of anything in a quite a while—tee hee!
