Victoria began asking when she can earn and spend real money in the last year.  So this summer she's been doing chores for quarters here and there.  I gave her one of my old wallets and she's been saving.  We went to the Toys 'r' Us a couple weeks ago when she had under $10 to spend and she looked and looked and looked and looked.  Man, I tried to be patient, be come on......  

In the end she decided to save for something she REALLY wanted.  I was proud of her.

She's been into her Victoria doll lately and decided she wanted to buy her a new outfit.  I mean, she reads to it each night and sings it a good morning song.  
Poor thing wears the same outfit day in and day out.  

Off we went.  But not before I taught her a lesson on clipping coupons.  She scored some Joann coupons from Mama Jeanne and off we went.  

How is a girl to decide???

After we went to the bank and cashed in all her change she had $16.30.
She had two 50% off coupons.

She looked and looked and looked.

She spent $8.  Good thing she had those coupons or she'd be broke!

She decided on a visor because, "It's going to be sunny at Yogi" and a new pair of pj's because, "she likes to be comfortable."

She's got her eye on sunglasses and a dress that comes with shoes.

The joys of being seven!
