I wanted to video the whole trip as he told the cashier that he saved his money and that all the quarters in the roll was $10. As he called his Dad on the way home to tell him I gave him a coupon so he only spend $8.50. It was pure magic. Literally.
Then we got home and I realized we needed heavy whipping cream. So off to the store I went and I couldn’t believe I spent $4.79 on a carton. But whatever, we had to make it and he was going to be so excited!
So we start to make the ice cream and each 2oz serving requires 4 Tbsp of salt. So you can only imagine that we ran out of salt after the second batch. So I bought more salt. For $2.99.
And now I’m into Ice Cream Magic for nearly as much as Cooper is. And my arms are sore from 3 minutes of vigorous shaking. And then a couple more minutes after that because after 3 minutes, it’s still pretty much soup.
But you know what? I’ve got one proud baby. One that grins every night when we pull out the ice cream maker that HIS money bought.
Maybe his money wants to hire someone to shake ice cream for us?

This is a great post. I'm going to share it with my husband so he can teach me how to save. But in all seriousness I bet your son will now want to save even more because he knows what he can do with his money!
