Bekah and a friend braved the mall this week armed with numerous gift cards (some from several birthdays ago!). I never knew one could spend almost an hour in Claire's (an accessories store) but I found out it is possible - especially when you are trying to stick to your budget ("Mommy, what is the tax if I have a hat that costs $12 and a necklace that costs $7?"). Yippee for mental math!
Bekah leaned over to me right before going up to pay and whispered, "Mommy, I really don't like paying tax!" I confessed that I don't either.
Organizing their money and receipts after several purchases. "It is good to keep the receipt to make sure that the store doesn't cheat you!" She didn't learn that from me.
