They earned it!

by Shelly February. 26, 2009 452 views

The boys were able to cash in on their Wii savings this week. They had saved over $300 from their allowances, babysitting and paper route money. It didn't take them very long at all, considering they have only been saving since Christmas. They got an extra remote and nunchuck, but not any games other than the ones that come with it. So, the Wii savings jar goes back on the counter and they can begin again.

Congratulations boys - you've earned it!

I have to hand it to you and Scott, that was a great idea to make them earn it themselves. I'm sure they probably dont think so, but later in life they will appreciate this lesson. I know I finally got it when I grew up.

It is great that they earned it themselves...they'll appreciate it and what it takes to reach a financial goal....there are a whole lot of people right now in the USA that never understood the principal of saving the money first...then buying the item.

Wow, I didn't realize they made their goal already. Congrats. We are still saving... it is hard work. Where did you get the Wii?
