I love taking the occasional trip down memory lane to look over my kids’ transactions from their earliest financial days. Who knew the $26 toy horse that my then 11 year old daughter bought back on April 13th in 2002 was the precursor to years of competitive riding?
And, oh yes, how about the Neiman Marcus iridescent chiffon gown she bought for the high school prom? I told her she’d regret torching her whole clothing budget on that one, but, hey, live and learn! That “go cold turkey on clothing for the rest of the year” experience was way more effective than any parental lecture from an engineer-geek dad, that’s for sure!
It’s fun looking back, so I don’t want to lose my precious “financial memory lane” accounts. That said, I don’t want to be tripping over them every time I go into FamZoo either!
