Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Dear Shayna B.,

My parents always let me get things like pop its, LOL dolls, tiny rubber bands and fidget spinners. I always throw them in my closet when the trend gets old. My parents said they’re going to stop buying. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Trendsetter Tamera

Dear Trendsetter Tamera,

If it takes you only a week to get rid of your toy, why don’t you borrow your friends’ toys? You can also buy with your own money if your friends don’t feel comfortable lending their toys. How do you get money? From a job. How do you get a job? You sell lemonade. (I sold lemonade when l was younger. I made an okay amount for selling lemonade.) You can babysit. You can photograph people. My point is you can do a lot of things to earn money, but buying stuff you don’t need or really want is not the way you should spend your money. So take my advice, kid, don’t buy worthless junk. But if you do, when you get bored, you can always sell your junk to other people who want it.

Best of luck,

Shayna B.
