Tiger started a business this spring making lunches for co-op and selling them. As soon as he started making money, we talked about budgeting and how to allocate his money into different categories. One category was for fun. 10% of his income could go to just for fun. (Other categories are long term, education, big ticket, tithing, and necessities) He decided that he wanted to buy himself some ice cream with his fun money. He waited for a sale at the grocery store and then selected his choice- vanilla. After dinner, he went and got his ice cream and ate it joyfully right out of the carton.
Ah! The sweet rewards of running his business :)
