Sent from reader, Caroline:

My 6 year old daughter recently earned $2 for doing a chore around the house. Right away, she wanted to waste it at the Dollar Store. I told her I didn’t want her to waste it because I wanted to show her how to make her money stretch further. So we printed coupons, made her list, and went off to Shoprite. This is her haul:

4 dole smoothies
12 jars baby food (she bought these to donate to a food pantry)
3 candy bars
Total = $9.07

Coupons used:
$0.75/1 (our store doubles up to $1)
$1/4 stage 2 Beech Nut
B1G1 free 3 Musketeers

Total Out of Pocket = $1.09 ( + received a $1.50 Catalina from Dole!)
