Very interesting! Although painful, she will likely remember that for the rest of her life. The lesson here is obviously that you can definitely spend money on things you like but that there are limitations. It is a painful but valuable lesson that I think many people these days have thrown out the window, if they ever even learned it to begin with. People want it all, even if it bankrupts them. Your daughter could be our future MoneyGal lol.Another thing I won't balk at spending money on is books for my daughter - I figure it's a fantastic investment in her education/learning. I still buy second hand books, but if we're at a store and she wants a book or two (I will set my limit... once she had 8 books in the cart so I made her choose two and she cried and criieeed about that!) I will buy them for her.
