Every year we participate in our towns community yard sale. This year I am selling some of my sons movies and his old DS and a lot of games. I am also selling our old Wii with games. Along with clothes for him and DD. He is all excited over the money he thinks he will get. I was planning on using most of the yard sale money for house stuff. (food, dog food, laundry stuff, etc) Now I'm wondering if I'm wrong. I bought the stuff. But I did buy it for him. SO...Who gets the money??

If it were me, I would give my kids a little bit of the money.

If my son was old enough to participate in the sale I'd let him keep it. Half would go in the bank, half he could spend as he likes.

Does he have something in mind he wants to buy with the money?

I would give him some of it.

If I were to sell my child's possessions like games and electronics, I would give them the money from that. Clothes no.

I will add that I did not take any of the things being sold. He offered them all up. And he has a new 3DS and a new playstation in place of the items being sold. (just didnt want anyone to think I am some mean money hungry momma!) I'm going to end up letting him buy something for himself with the proceeds then using the rest for the household stuff.
