    But I also buy my kids alot of things... when we had / have money troubles then I do like a $1 thing each or something...

    But I would love to still be able to buy them toys and clothes everytime I go to the store.

  • I'm inclined to say yes. I suppose it depends on what it is. Do you buy things that you play with together? Or is it just stuff that sits in his room taking up space? My son had two cars about the size of standard shoe boxes: a racecar and an ambulance. We spent hours racing them and playing crash 'em. We built towers and walls out of those oversize legos just so we could knock them down and start over. Clothes are in a different category. They grow so fast, seasons change.

  • Clothes are a needed thing,so those need to be bought. Toys, well if you get him age appropriate toys, as he grows those change, so I guess it all depends on if your buying him 1-2 new toys a month, or 10. And at his age, they are happy with a box to play with, so there isnt a need to buy everything. "to make him happy" when he realy wont know the difference.
