Trixie’s (7) been angling for a while to get a toy she saw on TV, a Shopkins Happy Home.
At $29.99, it wasn’t outrageously expensive (although overpriced for what it is), but it also wasn’t cheap enough to make it something I’d randomly let her get during our weekly Target run.
She saved her allowance ($5/week) and Tooth Fairy money until she reached $22.
Close but no cigar.
We agreed that she could get the toy this week and earn the rest by doing chores around the house.
She made a list:
- Make every bed in house
- Do laundry (maybe)
- Clean living room and keep clean
I’ll remain optimistic about the list, but I’m also not holding my breath for ironed linens and hospital corners on my bed.
