    Guess she would have a different attitude, if she earned the money.
    Spend girl-spend!
    What could be more expensive than two young girls with a no Dad income, and a Ganny at home?
    Guess more expensive would be the same, only both in college.

    @ sjsczurek from yesterday.
    Can’t even imagine petit-fours dipped in mustard?

    I doubt if they would sell well at all. :)
    I do remember when white pant suits were popular.but they always reminded me of the ice cream man

    I’m with Alix…a good second-hand shop, Goodwill, Salvation Army…you can find really excellent (name brand, even!) clothes for a reasonable amount…

    Give Holly 100.00 and let her buy her jeans. That’ll be the ONLY new piece of clothing she’ll have for the whole school year. Our kids took the $$ and learned to shop at discount stores. Still do.

    I’m with loveslife—you give her a budget and then it’s up to her. I usually don’t care for Holly, but she has shown that she’s capable of thought, as when she felt bad about teasing the girl and losing a friend. Gramma hit the nail on the head—guilt lasts longer and it never hurts to consider the consequences of your actions.

    Right on Grandma Evie and Alix. It is about time, Holly, came ‘back down to earth’ and face up to life’s truth instead of acting some ‘inane teenage drama diva’ on the Disney Channel. Which is where teenage girls get there outlandish ideas ! It is all Disney’s fault ! ! !

    My girls all graduated between 1980 and ’84, so money went comparatively farther. Princess Clothes Horse (middle daughter) could only put her fine fanny into Gloria Vanderbilt jeans until I gave her a clothing allowance that was $5 less than a pair of fancy pants. She learned VERY quickly how to find the best sales.

    Gramma kind of did that with words. Put Holly in her place!
