Little Extreme Shopper

 One of the many things I teach my kids is the value of saving money. So with Lily's birthday she got a first hand lesson on extreme toddler shopping.
She received a coupon  in the mail from Toys R'Us for $3 off of $3. So the best way to save the most bucks is to pick something in their $1,$2,$3,$5 bins. She loved the feeling that she got to pick whatever she wanted. And she picked up these sparkle princess shoes for free since they were $3. She loved telling the cashier that she's getting something for free.
Afterwards we went to Wingers for her free kids meal. She had this look of satisfaction on her face knowing that she can pick whatever she wanted off the kids menu. I guess the best way to describe it is a small sense of independence.

So with her coupons she saved herself $7. Not bad for an (almost) 4 year old.
