Here's this morning's challenge question: According to a recent survey by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the average annual amount for this line item in the family budget is $780. What's the item?
It's a KID'S ALLOWANCE!
Sound like too much? It actually works out to be about $15 a week...
The survey also reveals that 61% of parents say they pay out an allowance, and 89% of those say they tie it to at least an hour of household chores a day.
Malissa came through with the right answer first this morning - so we gave her a bit of a shopping allowance - $25 at Patriot Square!
