I have 2 kids, one in middle school (11) and one in elementary (7). DH and I have never given them a set allowance. Their lunches are pre-paid or brought from home and their requests for toys & books are very reasonable. Christmas & both birthdays are lumped within one time period and they receive so many things (from their parties) that I end up storing them, giving little by little throughout the year. How much would you give girls in those ages?
