Oh the things you get to watch.
Last weekend one of the local thrift shop had 5$ a garbage bag sale. Where you can buy as much clothes as you can that will fit in to a garbage bag for 5$. Yaya and 3 of her friends attended the sale.
When she came back, she had 4 tops, 2 jeans and few pairs of shorts. When I used to take her for the same sale few months ago, she used to come home with lot more clothes. So I was curious as to what happened?
“We decided to split 5$ four ways and buy only one bag of clothes, so each of us only needed to pay $1.25.”
At the moment, she is working two jobs and earning her own money. I do not give her any money as I believe that my responsibilities were over the day she graduated grade 12.
All of a sudden, spending her own money is a lot difficult than spending her mother’s money. She now knows how to stretch her money…which is a good lesson to learn..
