Late one Friday night, he gathered a bunch of junk from around the neighbor- hood and put it on my neigh- bor's lawn. Then he posted a sign out front that said, "Yard Sale." Sure enough, at 7:00 am there were people knocking on my neighbor's door waiting for the sale to open. He was so annoyed that he called our house and left an angry mes- sage. When I arrived home that day, I immediately went over to apologize for my son's behavior. "I can't believe my son put all that junk on your lawn," I apol- ogized. "That's quite alright," my neighbor replied rather calmly. "It turns out I made $200." (Thanks to Billy G.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane "Cash" Holze & Todd "Carry" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Fast Facts Dear Classified Guys, I must admit. I am a packrat. So when the car could barely fit into the garage, I knew I had to do something. That's when I made a deal with my 13 and 14- year-old sons. I told them that if they cleaned out the garage and had a yard sale, I would give them the money. I figured they'd make enough for a new bike or a video game. I never expected them to make almost $1500 on the sale. Not only did they over- price everything, but they became little sales demons. People bought almost everything. Now what do I do? I can't set them loose with that kind of money. Any ideas? • • • Cash: First, you might want to make sure you still have your car in the garage. Considering their new-found talents, you never know. Carry: It sounds like your chil- dren may have a successful future in sales. Maybe you discovered a way for them to pay for college. Cash: Your intentions were great. Getting children involved in the yard sale process can be a great experience for them. Not only does it motivate them to help clean out the garage, but it's also a great way to teach them about the value of a dollar. Carry: Or in their case, the value of $1500. Cash: We agree that it is not a good idea to give $1500 to two young teenagers. That is a lot of money for them to have and they may not have the skills to manage it yet. Carry: However, you also don't want to go back on your word. They did earn the money and tak- ing away their payoff will not build trust with your children. Cash: The best approach would be to commend them on a job well done and help them with manag- ing their earnings. Since you anticipated they would earn enough for a bike or video game, limit their spending to that amount. Carry: Then, help them open a bank account with their name on it. That way they can still experi- ence ownership of the money, and you can help manage how it is spent. Encourage them to save for a goal, like buying a car when they get older or helping to pay for the insurance. Cash: And considering how successful they were with the garage, maybe you should have them work on the attic! Ask the Guys This "Rummage Sale" seems rather green. ©The Classified Guys ® 09/25/11 Cashing In Since most schools don't offer a course in personal finance, children are left to learn how to handle money from their parents. Recent studies show that American teenagers spend more than $100 every week. Those spending habits may not be preparing them for the future. The number of consumers under age 25 that file for bankruptcy has increased significantly in recent years. Maybe we could all use a course in money managment. Money Tree As the saying goes, "money doesn't grow on trees." However in 2005, one man found out that a tree could have a credit card. Fed up with receiving credit card applications, a California man signed up "Never Waste a Tree" for a card in hopes it would signal the company to stop send- ing applications. To his surprise, the company mailed him a card made out to the fictitious name, "Never Waste Tree". Although he cut up the card, it seems almost anything these days can have a credit line. • Do you have a question or funny story about the classifieds? Want to just give us your opinion?
