So, yesterday I braved the mall with all the kids because I heard Gymboree was having a huge sale and the girls wanted to look around to see if there was anything to buy with approximately $20.00 of their Christmas money. Thanks to Gymboree, the girls had a great lesson in money management and decision making. They had to figure out what they could afford and pick out the pieces that they knew they'd wear (they are no dummies and only wanted to buy things they really, really liked). It was music to my ears when Grace picked up a bracelet she HAD to have, asked how much it cost and quickly decided it wasn't that great when it cost almost half of her budget.
Emma got $200 worth of clothes for $28.00 (she did exchange a dress though).
