Three Bags of Bottles & Cans Later

In the name of mother earth and being less wasteful I have persuaded my 7 year old to organize all recyclables in exchange for all the funds we get after taking them in.

A few weeks ago our dog moxie ripped into all the bags the recyclables were in the side yard and my daughter just about gave up in her efforts. So we promised if she picked them up this weekend we would take them in and take her shopping with her earnings.

So as promised here she is with the $13 she received for the three 13 gallon bags she filled with cans & bottles.

An hour and a half later and a visit to the mall and Target, she ended up with a box of Orbeez. I tried to talk her out of it and tried to get her to pick something more useful like shoes or clothes. However, to her buying those things are boring and "mom's job".
