If your child(ren) gets an allowance, what do they spend it on?

Kyra gets between $2-$5 a week. She puts half back for the new Tinkerbell movie coming out in September. The rest, she buys gum and small toys with. Lately, she's been getting a lot of nail polish and a lot of packs of ceramic animals with paint. Our house is full of them now!

  • My son saved up $50 for a Nintendo DS, we gave him $30 to get the system and a game. Hubby got the DS from his boss for $65 and he got a game @ Game Stop for $15. He is saving up for more games. He takes our trash out ($.50/day), clean my mom's house ($10), takes neighbors trash out ($.50), cleans patios for the neighbors ($5). He has a good stash up right now. My oldest daughter is trying to save up money too she doesn't know what she is going to do with it.
