When we pay and they loose, it costs allot of money in the end, so read this post on the easiest way to stop kids form loosing things - you'll save money this way
They buy, you save
Have you ever considered this way of saving yourself some money?
I recently heard from a friend, when we were discussing the way kids just leave their things lying around and they just don't seem to care that you paid allot of money for those Nike's.
Their solution to the problem was to increase their children's pocket money, but with a catch.
What's the catch?
They must buy their own pencils, pens, shoes, school blazers, etc. In general, they must buy everything they want and need for school.
This solution has worked wonders for them, the kids stopped leaving their things lying around in the school yard and even stopped lending out their pencils and pens. If they did borrow their thing to a friend, they made sure that it was returned. This way they always came back with all their things and stopped loosing things.
They even stopped being in competition with the rest of the kids, always wanting the most expensive shoes and clothes, because they started realizing how much they cost.
But, this might not be the solution for everybody
It might be that you cannot increase your kids allowances, but it is difficult to get them to stop loosing things as well, there is another solution.
This is logic:
When we mark their things, they loose it, but it comes back, because someone finds it and knows who it belongs to.
- They create innovative and award-winning labels for babies, kids and grown-ups.
- If you have twins, you can mark their things so that you don't exchange them, because if you are anything like us, you might also believe that one babies bottle is definitely his/her own.
- Their labels can be customized with a child's name, choice of colors and icon.
- Mabel's labels are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe!
- The labels aren't just for the stuff kids loose, they also have household labels (for marking your food containers) and allergy alerts.
- Lots more to look at: bag tags, book labels, holiday return address labels, spice labels, etc.
