The other day we took a stroll to a local grocery store and cashed in our change with their handy little machine. Henry had $20 and we had $20. Pretty nice!
I had originally planned on that $20 of ours going toward the cruise fund; however, we paired it with another bit of "found money" we had and Joe purchased a new pair of Keen sandals off Amazon instead.
He GREATLY needed these shoes, and they are for our vacations - so it works! We ended up paying only $12 out of our checkbook. So while the cruise money hasn't increased, we did get a pretty stinkin' good deal for a pair of Keens.
Loose change certainly adds up!
Henry will be using his money to purchase toys he will most certainly want on our upcoming trip. We are only buying him 1 or 2 things - the rest will come from his money, and when it's gone, it's gone! Tough lesson for an almost 4 year old. We'll see how it goes....yikes!
