My daughter has hit her teen years and with that the makeup has started. Granted, most girls her age have been wearing makeup a lot longer than she has, so I really shouldn’t complain. She’s also been coloring her hair for quite some time – well, I should say, when I will allow it. What I can’t make her understand is that all these cosmetics cost money and it would be nice if she would help cut the cost by using coupons like Loreal coupons that one sees online and in the Sunday paper coupon inserts.
For whatever reason, I don’t think that she sees the value in coupons quite yet. I will give her credit that when she sees something at a store and thinks that she might be able to get that product at the Dollar Store – she will say, “I think I’ll wait. I can get these at the Dollar Store.” She’ll do this if we’re shopping and she wants Pringles chips or even those peach gummy rings. If I could only get her to go through coupon inserts and clip coupons for things that she might want, or things that we buy, I’d be very happy. I wouldn’t care if she clipped any and all coupons for cosmetics and hair dyes – at least we’d have them when we need them.
Oh the joys of the teen years! Does your daughter wear makeup? Is she picky on the brand?
