    My son used to be like that too. It’s easy to save when someone else pays the bills for the fun stuff. Once we quit paying, he’s been broke ever since.
    I love the bit about the reusable water bottle. good lesson plan!

    My 8 year old is only just learning the value of saving – and her saving is only able to be done at home, with no distractions. If we go to the toy store to spend birthday money, she wants to come home with something. Even if they didn’t have anything she wanted, she can’t come out empty handed and save her money for later.

    She’s starting to understand that I can buy stuff online for her, but the waiting is painful! She’s an instant gratification type of gal.

    I think I was worse off than your son when I was in school. The extra money that my mother gave me never went to what it was supposed to. Instead it went into the vending machine to buy me some chips or some other type of snack!

    But at least you spent it! Mine is using me as an extra savings account ;)
