Slightly delayed, but at least now it is made.
I’ve been chatting to my son about him earning some pocket-money. When I was growing up, I’d be given a £1 or so for doing the dishwasher or hoovering the house. The trouble was, these chores don’t follow through into real life (I totally don’t get an allowance to do the multitude of washing that comes with a four-person family!).
To start, we need some seed funding, so we’re selling a few old toys and things we don’t value around the house. The minimalist in me is loving it! Then, we’ll start getting some inventory. What we’ll specialise in, I don’t know yet, but we’ll be scouring charity shops and Facebook marketplace for some bargains.
One thing I know for sure is that school didn’t teach me about earning money - one of the most important skills in the modern age. I want to impart that experience and learning to my son.
I’ll share how we get on in a future issue,
