Last summer I posted an unscientific breakdown of the spending of our three teenagers. Like I said then, I’m sure there has been some study or report that captures this data, but why look further than our personal capital account.
Well, I’m back with an update, and I armed with a bit more data. My twin son and daughter have been working part-time for over six months, sharing a car for close to a year, and are navigating their senior year in high school.
They have been juggling college applications, scholarships, and keeping up an active social life. They both just returned from a three-day senior trip.
Now I don’t want to neglect my youngest son, but at fourteen he doesn’t have a regular income, so I leave him out for now. Although he is working on his side hustle to raise some money for the new Nintendo Switch console he has his sights set on.
