Riley has been doing chores at home for the last few weeks and finally saved up enough to buy something she's been wanting for several months. A mermaid doll from Dollar General. We bought one as a birthday gift a few months ago and she hadn't forgot how much she wanted one too.
She has three chores she has to do each week - take her dirty clothes to the laundry and sort them, pick up her room and gather the trash from all the small cans in the house. For this she gets $1. She saved up for 4 weeks so she would have enough for the $4 mermaid. (we haven't started talking about tax yet - so that was on me.)
So we get to the store and finally locate the ONLY mermaid left. It is indeed marked $4 so we head to the checkout. The girl behind the counter rings it up and it is on sale for $1. Can you believe it - $1? Lucky little girl. So now she has $3 to spare but so far I haven't heard talk of what is next.
