I won't let him spend it right now. I think money burns holes in his pockets and he need to learn how to think about what he buys before he goes off and just buys whatever and wastes his money.
Also, he wants to buy more TOYS and I say NO because he has a ton and his room is a disaster area and I say NO more toys until he learns to take care of the ones he has.
He just smartly said back to me,"Well its MY money" and I said, "Well, I'm your MOM and what I say goes."
He didnt like that to well and stomped off to bed.
Am I wrong? What should I do in this situation?

I would make him save it or at least monitor what he buys. There is no way I would let my 10 year old go to the store with $75. I like what clhadley said about making him go through his toys and get rid of ones he doesn't play with.
