Do you remember the first thing you bought with your own money?

Your first paycheck?


Actually I do. I was 8 years old and some of the kids in the neighborhood decided we wanted to earn money. We took an ad out in the paper to be a helping hand around people's yards and homes.

I bought Micheal Jackson's Thriller album.

My first actual paycheck. I was 15 years old living with an older man. I bought second hand clothes and food.

The first thing I bought was probably Christmas gifts. Other than that I don't really remember.

I'm with Noelle - probably Christmas gifts. Or penny candy since I even had chores as a little kid and got paid to do them ( when is was 5 I can remember standing on a kitchen chair and washing dishes in the sink. I made .02 for every load of dishes I washed which made me a whopping .06 a day on the weekends!).
