Dressing a Teenager the Cheapskates Way

Clothing is really important to a lot of teenagers, and they certainly don’t want their parents picking out everything for them, budget or not. However, fashion sense can’t be allowed to dictate the family finances. Still, it is possible to stick to a clothing budget without alienating your teen!

Teens know what they want, but they don’t always know how much it costs. Tell your teens how much you are willing to spend on clothing, then spend some time going through catalogues and internet sites to look at prices. Explain that if they spend half the budget on one pair of jeans…then they’ll be doing a lot of laundry! They might not be thrilled with the budgeted amount, but at least they’ll have the information.
