  • I liked the article on whether you should give your child an allowance. I believe that children shouldn’t be given money – they should have to earn it, so that they can learn the value of it. However, it shouldn’t be for jobs that they should do anyway, like keeping their room tidy and making their beds – it should be for larger things like helping in the garden, or cleaning the car. Something that might not be “their job”, but that they could make the effort to do in order to earn some money. That’s what I think is the best thing, as children learn that money takes time to earn.

  • If we make a large supper we always try to eat the leftovers up over the course of 2 days or so. It is annoying eating something that much sometimes but a great way to save money. I always feel bad when something has to be chucked at the end though because we didn’t eat it in time. It is also good not shop hungry I always end up buying extra junk/crap food if I am hungry.
