We're taking Dave Ramsey's 'Financial Peace University' right now, and have been forced to think about some things. Like allowance.
Not that Ollie's that old, but we thought maybe now was a good time to start having him earn a little money for jobs around the house. He has things has still HAS to do, just because he's a part of the family (like helping clear the table, helping to clean his room, etc.)
But last week, we started giving him money (like 15 cents!) if he'd help with the recycling bins. So here he is, working for his allowance:
Putting his money into his piggy bank.
Funny story: the other day, he put on a pair of jeans from his cousin, Isaac. He pulled out a folded dollar bill and said, "Oh, trash." And walked over and threw it away! I said, "No, wait Ollie! That's money!" Apparently he's never seen the stuff! Oh the days of plastic.
