Teach Kids To Resist Bad Bargains

Today’s fantastic family finance article is:

Bad Shirt Bargain

Shirts are $10 each.

But there’s a bargain offer of 4 shirts for the price of 3. $30 instead of $40. Sweet deal!

Your teen comes home with 4 shirts.

“Look dad, I saved $10.”

“How many shirts did you need?”

“Umm. One.”

“You didn’t save $10. You lost $20.”


Teach your kids to be wise to the classic buy-more-for-the-price-of-fewer sales tactic.

Like the saying goes:

“A bargain ain’t a bargain unless it’s something you need.”
