5 Reasons to Give Kids an Allowance https://www.everydaycheapskate.com/money-and-finances/5-reasons-give-kids-allowance/ https://www.everydaycheapskate.com/money-and-finances/5-reasons-give-kids-allowance/#comments Wed, 24 Apr 2019 07:39:31 +0000 http://www.everydaycheapskate.com/?p=15656 5 Reasons to Give Kids an Allowance

For the better part of my life I believed that more money was the answer to every problem in life. I was convinced that if we just made more money, won the lottery, or received some unexpected inheritance, all of our money problems would vanish.

But the more we made the worse our problems became. Because I didn’t know how to manage what we had, more would have never been enough. We didn’t save, we didn’t give, we didn’t plan, and we had no idea where all the money went. And surprise, surprise ... our two young boys were becoming just like me!

For years I’ve tried to grow decent vegetable gardens. My harvests have ranged from disappointing to mediocre. And certainly not cost-effective. Only that one year did my garden produced enough to share with others.

I’m still trying to remember how I did that. So far, I’ve been unable to duplicate the results but that's about to change. Can't wait to get started! ...

See you there. Love, m xo 🍅🥒🌶🌽🥕🤞

When all three messages landed in my inbox on the same day, the problem of soap scum, shower mildew, and hard water buildup grabbed my attention.
