(This is a guest post written by my son Fionn, sharing his thoughts on working to save up money for a big purchase)
Why I want a new scooter
I want a new scooter because my old Razor scooter Handel bars locked to the left when I crashed.
I also want a new scooter because my razor was lower to the ground and scrapes against the concrete. Park scooters are higher
off the ground and don’t scrape the concrete.
How much it cost and why I want a expensive scooter
It costs $200 I want an expensive scooter instead of a cheap one because cheap ones aren’t usually park scooters. There mostly have bigger wheels to bump over stuff. They also come with replacement parts.
Arrangement with mom and dad
The arrangement with my parents is simple I got 3 choices 1# not get one 2#Pay with my bank account 3# do work
I chose do work because I want a scooter and I want to save up for something else in the future. Working will probably help my work career too. Some of the chores you could say a few are Shoveling the snow, mowing the lawn, making my bed every day and loading the dishwasher.
